The Bentley takes equestrian love to another level of excellence

The British manufacturer of luxury automobiles, Bentley Motors, acknowledged for making bespoke vehicles, introduced a new member to its coach building Mulliner Collection, the Continental GT Convertible Equestrian Edition.

An inspiration from the popular hobby of riches, the Bentley Continental GT Convertible is limited to one single unit. Following the Bacalar Roadster, this is the second limited edition from the manufacturer and the first member of the Mulliner Collection.

It is finished in a distinctive shade of green called the spruce with black grill, bezels and an exhaust outlet matching the rims; the seats upholstery is in dark tan saddle leather, and the horse and rider emblems fitted on the walnut dashboard do justice to the equestrian theme. The green theme is carried inside, the upholstery is in high quality saddle brown leather mixed with Cumbrian green covering on the steering wheel, armrest and the top of the dashboard. The headrest on all the four seats features the same “horse and rider” silhouette in gold as on the dashboard.


The masterpiece is powered by Bentley’s twin-turbocharged 6 litre W12 engine, which can churn out 626 horsepower and 664 pound feet of torque, enough to attain a speed of 62mph in just 3.6 seconds before peaking at top speed of 203mph. From the distinct paint job to the use of fancy leather, the Bentley equestrian edition is an authentic model meant for applause.
