Look at all the tweed in this Bentley Bentayga
Bentley dealer and tailor team up for special Bentaygas with actual chessboards
Bentley is 100 years old in 2019. So’s Huntsman – a Savile Row tailor that specialises in tweed, and is based a stone’s throw away from Bentley’s oldest dealer, Jack Barclay in London’s Mayfair.
So the two companies – Huntsman and Jack Barclay – have joined forces to build a car, to celebrate their respective anniversaries. Said car is naturally a Bentley, and includes much TWEED.
Commissioned with and built by Bentley’s Mulliner division, the special Bentaygas are partially trimmed with ‘Peck 62’ tweed, which is inspired by a coat Huntsman once supplied to film star Gregory Peck. The ‘Sportsman’ model has blue leather, candy red paintwork and wood inlays, while the ‘Businessman’ has contrasting satin/gloss black paintwork, a black interior and carbon inlays.
Both feature a chessboard incorporated into the rear centre armrest, too. Because of course. There’s a tweed-trimmed compartment in which to keep the pieces, and the board is said to echo the chequerboard floor of Jack Barclay’s showroom.
Oh and buyers will also get a special jacket along with their car, in a material and style of their choosing. How the other half live, ey?
