You still shouldn’t take Bentley’s new Bentayga ‘Outdoors Pursuits’ Collection off roads



Seeing a Bentley Bentayga anywhere aside than on the smooth tarmacs is almost as rare as a shooting star. But that’s not stopping Bentley’s Mulliner bespoke division from coming out with a special-edition model for the luxury SUV, designed for the great outdoors.

It’s called the Bentley Outdoors Pursuits Collection, and before you pull out your pitchforks, it’s not the type of “outdoors” that you’re thinking of. Bentley says that the special collection is designed to “encapsulate three of the most iconic British outdoor activities including angling, horse riding and dog walking”, and heck – it even comes with bespoke 22-inch wheels that you definitely won’t want to scratch-up on the offroad trails.

Only 11 of these Outdoors Pursuit Collection Bentaygas will be built, all destined for the UK only, and each will feature a number of bespoke features to celebrate the “natural world in the UK”. These include a woodland embroidery scene, hand cross-stitching to the main interior stitching, and a special chrome overlay on the passenger-side dashboard fascia that describes each outdoor theme.

The special edition Bentaygas also feature a new woven wool finish on the door cards, seat back pockets, grab handles, and further detailing around the instrument panel, which Bentley says “adds further depth of natural textures and materials to the already class-leading interior”.

The dashboard is covered in a dark fiddleback eucalyptus veneer, but features a special “Liquid Amber” straight grain veneer around the edges as accent pieces. The veneers can also be optioned with bespoke inlays, which customers can choose between a jumping horse motif, a fly-fishing scene, British foxhounds or just the word ‘MULLINER’.

There’s even some Sand Herringbone Tweed textures all around the cabin to further complement the unique interior design and upholstery colours. On the outside meanwhile, customers can choose between three hand-picked colours – Havana, Cumbrian Green, or Magnetic.

Other bespoke pieces on the Bentley Bentayga Outdoors Pursuit Collection even include a “Hunter Flask”, bound in the same matching leather as the interior for you to bring along when you’re away from the car, as well as a matching key fob cover – so you’ll never forget what kind of Bentayga you’re driving I guess.

It’s certainly a unique design piece, and actually looks pretty dang good in our humble opinion – as with most other Mulliner commission pieces. Just, definitely, don’t expect to bring it off roads.
