Bentley Bentayga Field Sports Edition by Mulliner is the most luxurious hunting car out there

We’re willing to bet that the Bentley Bentayga is not the first thing that comes to mind for most people who are into off-roading and outdoor activities. It just doesn’t have that kind of reputation; also, it has a whopping price tag of $229,000.

Well, regardless of what your reasons are for hesitating on purchasing one, the automaker, together with Mulliner, has built an outstanding vehicle that you would want in your garage. Both companies have joined forces to fit a Field Sports accessory kit to the luxurious SUV, and this optional kit includes everything you need for the ultimate hunting car, believe it or not.

The British automaker and aforementioned Mulliner got custom gun manufacturer Purdey to work with them. So Purdey designed storage in the cargo area as an added feature. But what makes this so special is the large sliding unit that comes with several compartments capable of carrying supplies that the passenger will require – ranging from a first aid kit to some extra ammunition. Of course, the storage is not just like any basic storage out there, as it has been finished in the finest, authentic handcrafted materials to make sure that it is still luxurious.

Get starstruck with this Startech-styled Bentley Bentayga in Shadow Gold

A Startech-tuned Bentley Bentayga by far is the most lavishly styled exhibit from the sea of aftermarket specialists that graced the IAA. An affiliate of Brabus, Startech has actually brought us the first ever customized variant of the British brand’s highly expensive sport utility vehicle. Since then, over a handful of Bentayga owners have been captivated by Startech’s tuning products and availed the German tuner’s special upgrades despite the incredible price.

What we have here is yet another Bentayga dressed with the tuner’s custom body kit but it seems to stand out more from the rest of them. Featuring the ultra-luxurious Shadow Gold paint finish, this SUV comes equipped with Startech’s huge 23-inch forged Monostar S wheels, valve controlled exhaust, lowering kit, an extended body and the Startech-exclusive front and rear bumpers.

Some of the features special to this brand are the Bentayga’s unique carbon fiber diffuser at the rear section and the honeycomb lower grille inserts at the front. The very distinct Shadow Gold paint finish could be seen throughout the roof, C-Pillars, bonnet and all around the grille. This same finish is also seen on the SUV’s trunk lid badge, air vent surrounds and forged wheels.

Mansory gives the 2017 Bentley Mulsanne an array of impressive power and style upgrades

Bentley Mulsanne is Mansory's latest project to date, and it looks much more stylish compared to some of the last ones they have tuned.

The ultra luxurious Mulsanne has been given just the right amount of facelift with additional carbon fiber details from the front bumper lip spoiler, and fog lamps surround. More carbon has been added in the form of side skirts, boot lid spoiler, and rear bumper diffuser.

What completes the new look of the limo would be the huge set of 22-inch forged wheels hugged by 285/35Z ultra-high performance tires on the front and rear axles. The hot wheels were of course, recommended by Mansory.

New Bentley on-demand concierge service to operate in 3 US cities through the summer

Bentley is one of the most prominent and most revered names in the automotive industry. It is one of the most favored British classics with unparalleled abilities performance-wise and of course, in terms of customer service. Recently, Bentley has been stepping up the latter by offering the new Bentley On-Demand service. It is a new and innovative luxury connected-mobility service that is designed to provide “luxury mobility solution” to their customers in any location of their choice without having to go through the inconvenience of traditional car rental services.

What does this new Bentley On-Demand service offer? Well, as its name suggests: members may request for a Bentley to be delivered at a time and place of their choice. It’s like a rent-a-car program that exclusively caters to Bentley owners. So, for days when the good old Mulsanne doesn’t feel posh enough to get you through your errands, the Bentley On-Demand service is the way to go.

How do existing Bentley owners access or avail of this concierge service? First step is to download the Bentley Network app, and then owners are asked to validate their account. Once the app is downloaded and the account validated, the users may then browse through an extensive range of luxury Bentley models available and reserve their choice and specify a convenient location for the delivery. An hour before delivery, a “courteous reminder” of the said reservation is sent to the customer and prior to the arrival of the vehicle, the customer is once again notified prior to the arrival of the vehicle to inform them of the concierge’s (and the car’s) arrival. These steps ensure that there will be minimal disruption on the part of the customer.

We do know that a few people are not into animal leather. In today’s world, more and more people are learning to stay away from leather or anything that would cost an animal’s life, and veganism is not just limited to what we consume.

So as an automotive company, how do you cope with this change? We know that they usually just offer fabric or leather to finish off the seats and the cabin of their cars. But guess what? Bentley is way ahead of its competitors and according to Stefan Sielaff, Director of Design, the company has already been exploring several vegan-friendly options for upholsteries and trims. This is part of their plan to produce more eco-friendly vehicles in the near future, and by that I don’t just mean hybrid or electric vehicles, though that is still part of the plan.

During the Financial Times Future of the Car Summit, Sielaff said that “you can’t sell an animal containing product like a Bentley, with 20 leather hides, to someone with a vegan lifestyle” - and clearly, this is where their idea rooted from. These customers ask the company for leather alternatives that they can offer, so if they want to make a sale, then they will have to keep up with changing trends. Even if this means they have to begin from research and development - just to keep customers satisfied, especially if your company offers custom-made solutions to customers.

Genesis Motors, the luxury vehicle division of South Korean manufacturer Hyundai Motor Company, takes a step further from their usual designs as they unveiled the G90 Special Edition - a vehicle that represents a marriage of luxury and technology. Hyundai also announced new developments at the latest Seoul Motor Show this week.

Dressed in a two-tone paint finish, the G90 Special Edition showcased three different versions. The first one came in a metallic brown and matte grey combo, the other one was a matte grey and silver, and last but not the least, a metallic blue and solid white finish - all of these colour combinations were “inspired by a finely-tailored gentleman’s pin-stripe suit” according to the company.

We strongly feel like the South Korean automaker is shying away from conservative designs and instead is leaning towards something different this time. The Special Edition vehicle features an upgraded interior with Nubuck leather trim, accent stitching, upgraded carpeting, and more. While each of them has a hand-painted coach line running all around the sides of the vehicle’s exterior. At first glance, you would think it is a Bentley. You’ll just be surprised that it is a Genesis when you have a closer look. Perhaps it’s because the former design director of Bentley, Luc Donckerwolke, has been leading the design brand since early last year.

Bentley once again confirmed its plans to push PHEV into their future lineups. As a matter of fact, the Bentayga SUV will be the first to have the plugin hybrid technology, which will also be using a V6 engine. Next on the line would be none other than the new generation Bentley Continental GT. And there’s more to come.

During a recent press interview with Automotive News, Wolfgang Duerheimer reiterated the fact that plugin hybrids no longer serve as “temporary bridge technology”. Instead, it now offers the best features of both cars with internal combustion engine as well as those of electric powered vehicles.

The CEO also considers the fact that the upcoming plugin variants would be their answer to the consumers who want to use their cars to go to places where gasoline and diesel engines would no longer be allowed.

For almost a century, Bentley has been one of the leading luxury motorcar manufacturers. It has always prided itself for producing hand-built luxury vehicles that have been given a lot of time and effort by their resident designers, craftsmen and engineers. In terms of putting together technology and timeless elegance, Bentley is already an expert of this field. Its production and manufacturing houses create some of the world’s most classic and expensive cars, some of which have served high-profile personalities like Queen Elizabeth.

Last year, Bentley introduced to the world an SUV that was beyond all others of its kind. The Bentley Bentayga is a classic offering into the realm of SUVs, living proof that not all SUVs are the stereotypical soccer mom service vehicle. What most of us do not know is that there is more to the Bentayga than meets the eye, more than its authoritarian exterior or even the 600 horsepower under its hood.

The name “Bentayga” is a combination of the company founder’s name and the Taiga, a biome that is typically found in the northern hemisphere.

All three luxury cars are treated with the same level of unsurpassed craftsmanship and attention to detail that is a trademark of Bentley. However, each has unique abilities and attributes and is geared for a specific set of customer needs.

Bentley is bringing in an entirely new level of modern cabin luxury by introducing stone veneers developed by Mulliner. This luxurious interior finish makes use of stone veneer technology to create a modern feature from slate and quartzite stone – a natural product formed over 200 million years.

These natural products are sourced from quarries in Rajasthan and Andhra Pradesh, India. Following extractions, sections of stone are split from larger ones and then cured using glass fiber and a bespoke resin. After the curing process, the stones are then shaped and hand finished by Bentley’s Mulliner coachbuilding team at the carmaker's Crewe headquarters in the United Kingdom.

Since the stone surfaces of the veneers feature a thickness of just 0.1 mm, they are really very light and translucent. The grain and pattern of the stone are also very visible to the occupants of the vehicle. The Stone Veneers are now being offered for the Bentley Continental and Flying Spur in a natural finish, in four different colors: Galaxy, Autumn White, Terra Red and Copper.

After four years of blood, sweat and tears, the Bentley Bentayga is now poised to take the world by storm. It all began four years ago with one amazing idea that led to the creation of a bold and dominant masterpiece.

Ploughing their largest capital investment into any model to date, Bentley has left nothing to compromise with the Bentayga. An eye-blinking £840 million was invested, 1,500 new jobs were created, and the assembly line at Crewe has certainly been given the all-star treatment.

With deliveries commencing in January 2016, SUV customers will not be disappointed. Appreciating the prowess of this powerful machine, Wolfgang Durheimer, Chairman and CEO of Bentley Motors said that the Bentley Bentayga will be the “benchmark” for the new luxury SUV segment and will be proof of how strongly committed the company is to creating jobs and investing in this country, specifically at its Crewe home.

Bentley expects its entry-level V8 Continental GT to boost GT production back to its peak of 5000 units. Because of the recession, the output had been halved. Set to go on sale in 2012, the V8 is targeted at a new group of buyers, especially in the US, where V8s are popular.

The Continental GT was showcased at the Paris motor show earlier this month. It will cost from £135,760, an increase of almost £10,000 on the current car's £126,500 sticker price. Bentley is hoping that this new model will continue the success of the 2003 original.

At first glance, they may appear similar but the new Conti has been given several major updates, including a new engine and a yet undisclosed 4.0-litre direct injection V8.

Bentley has started to develop its own four-door coupe, according to autoexpress. In recent years, the four-door coupe segment has constantly been expanding.

The vehicle that Bentley is currently developing will be the entry-level model of its future range. It will directly compete against the Aston Martin Rapide, the next generation of the Maserati Quattroporte, or the four-door model that Lamborghini is considering.

Bentley announced today that the introduction of the new 2011 Continental GT at this year’s Paris Motor Show was a success and the new coupe received critical acclaim. The visitors were impressed by the new design of the Continental GT and all the important automotive magazines had only positive feedback.

Honestly to tell you we were impressed two by the new Continental GT, because it refines a little the design of the old model. The 2011 Continental GT is powered by a 6.0-liter W12 engine delivering 575PS (567bhp/423kW) and 700Nm (516lb ft) of torque and uses a new Quickshift transmission which enables double downshifts.

However, Bentley announced that it will introduce a smaller V8 engine which could use the dual-clutch Audi S Tronic transmission.
