Bentley’s latest special edition droptop Continental GT pays homage to horse racing

Two noble steeds come together in this limited edition Bentley release.

Bentley Mulliner, the branch of the British brand responsible for creating totally customized commissioned vehicles for their most fastidious clients, has presented the Equestrian Edition of the Continental GT Convertible; the one-of-a-kind model was inspired by The Cheltenham Festival, one of the biggest horse-racing festivals in the UK.

On the headrest of each of the four seats, an icon of a horse and rider have been embroidered onto the sustainable Saddle hide upholstery. Complementing this caramel-colored fabric is a Cumbrian Green hide, both of which cover various cabin components apart from the seats including the dash, steering wheel and door panels, some of which are also finished with a gorgeous straight grain walnut veneer and box wood inlays – and detailed in gold.

Also on the interior – Bentley Mulliner’s iconic diamond quilting, now crafted with authentic tweed featuring a contemporary light blue stitching on the door inlays and rear quarter panels. All this is rounded out by the brand’s trademark treadplates.

Matching the green hide found throughout the interior is Spruce-colored exterior paint job which is complemented by a glossy black finish on all the components on the standard Continental GT Convertible which are usually chrome like the radiator grille, bezels, wheels, and exhaust.

In terms of tech, the model has been outfitted with a slew of driver assistance systems including Lane Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control and Night Vision, among others.
