Endeavoring to expand its Mulliner division, Bentley has now released the first special edition vehicle in its Collections portfolio by the traditional coach-building branch of the British luxury automaker.

Based on the brand’s high-performance Continental GT Convertible, the new exclusive ride is inspired by the art and heritage of equestrian — more specifically the Cheltenham Festival, dubbed by the company as “the most exhilarating and prestigious event of the horse racing calendar.” Powered by Bentley’s own massive 6.0-liter W12 engine, the GT can make 0-60mph in just 3.7 seconds. It’s finished in a specifically commissioned green shade named Spruce, and replacing the usual chrome hardware such its exhaust pipes and grille is a gloss black coating for a more sleek and aggressive look. Black 22-inch Mulliner Driving Specification wheels then round off the vehicle.

Moving to the interior, the open-roof car maintains the equestrian theme with detailing such as a horse and rider silhouettes on the headrests, while other parts of the cabin receives a highly luxurious makeover, such as gold detailing the Walnut veneers as well as boxwood inlays, and Bentley’s iconic diamond quilting constructed with premium Tweed fabric.

There’s no pricing information yet on the Bentley Mulliner Equestrian Edition Continental GT Convertible, but expect it to be significantly higher than the usual Continental GT price of £151,800 GBP (roughly $200,000 USD). To learn more, head over to Bentley Mulliner’s website now.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, the New York Auto Show has been postponed due to coronavirus concerns.
