Bentley’s bespoke commissioning division Mulliner has introduced a new tweed option for a variety of the brand’s luxurious cars.
Available for the firm’s Flying Spur, Continental GT and Bentayga models, the new trim option gives buyers yet another option for in-car personalisation.
The four tweed patterns give an even higher-quality feel to the cabin. ‘Cheltenham’ combines countryside-inspired greens, while ‘Glen Plaid-Tosta’ - named after the beaches of the Outer Hebrides - uses a more traditional colour scheme.
The line-up is finished with ‘Charcoal’ and ‘Sand Herringbone’ shades which ‘complement dark and light interiors’, according to Bentley.
All of the tweed used by Bentley is sourced from Lovat Mill, located in the Scottish Borders town of Hawick. Produced in an environmentally friendly way, the Lovat Mill uses a ‘dry’ facility which does away with any dyes or other chemicals which could prove hazardous for the environment. In addition, 90 per cent of local electricity consumption comes from renewable sources.
This isn’t the first time that a tweed option has been made available by Bentley, either. It recently delivered the ‘Sportsman’ Bentayga which used the material for the passenger and driver fascias, while the Continental GT Equestrian edition featured diamond-quilted fabrics for the door inlays.
More recently, the Bentley Mulliner Bacalar incorporated grey tweed to the sides of the centre console, as well as across the main instrument panel and door interiors.
