To Russia with love: Bentley Mulliner shares Russian ballet-themed Bentayga Speed collection

Bentley’s bespoke division, Bentley Mulliner, shares its first Russian ballet-themed collection from various regional commissions. The bespoke creations are based on the automotive brand’s most sophisticated SUV, the Bentayga Speed.

According to Bentley, there are six cars in the collection — all of which have already been allocated.

Each of the six vehicles has a different exterior paint from the extensive Bentley palette, including three vehicles in duo-tone.

In addition, the regional collection features unique exterior design elements that are both aesthetic and purposeful. Dark-tint headlights, body-colored side skirts, unique front and rear bumpers, and a striking, elongated tailgate spoiler characterize the SUV’s performance credentials.

Likewise, its dark-tint radiator and bumper grilles, unique 22-inch wheel design, and Russian Heritage LED welcome lighting represent the Bentayga’s sophisticated nature.

The interiors, on the other hand, are based on four different specifications, consisting of a bespoke interior split.

These include Windsor Blue over Light Windsor Blue, Silver Storm over Damson, Moonbeam over Moroccan Blue, Damson, Spectre, and Magnolia.

Bentley’s bespoke division configured the SUV’s luxurious cabin to incorporate silhouettes of a performing ballet dancer as inlays to the front fascias.

These Bentayga Speeds are so tastefully designed that even Colonel Rosa Klebb (the fictional character from the James Bond novel and its film adaptation From Russia with Love), probably can't say no to it.

“We are excited to present the exclusive Bentayga Speed Russian Heritage Collection to our Russian customers. This project is built on the passion for perfection, which Bentley shares with such a grand and sophisticated art as ballet, the central motif of this year’s limited edition. These six unique SUVs will be delivered by Bentley Moscow and Moscow-Volgogradskiy at the end of the year, as all of the cars are already allocated,” said Chief of Bentley Russia, Christian Schlick.

All cars in the collection are named after a unique move that is displayed on the treadplate and share the same ballet imagery throughout the cabin.

The Bentayga Speed lives up to its name by packing a 6.0-liter W12 twin-turbocharged engine that delivers a maximum power output of 626 horses and 900Nm of torque. This range-topping SUV peaks at 306kph and can sprint from zero to 100kph in just 3.9 seconds.

The Bentley Bentagya Speed offers a perfect platform for the first chapter of Bentley's Russian Heritage Editions, an annual project aimed to create exclusive thematic versions, especially for its Russian customers.
