It's green for money, the efficiency and the color.
If you're looking for a special, bespoke Bentley, you speak to Bentley. More specifically, you get in touch with the British automaker's Mulliner division. Want a stone veneer in your cabin? Mulliner can make it happen. Want bespoke upholstery? Again, Mulliner can help you. But what if you want something more extreme, something totally different from all other Bentleys on the road? What if you want to completely transform a Bentayga Hybrid? Well, you guessed it: Mulliner can make even that happen. Built for a Chinese customer, Mulliner unveils the latest of its creations, and it's a truly unique, one-off SUV that is positively littered with bespoke touches. Meet the Shanghai Bentayga Hybrid.
The first thing you'll notice is the paint, which is green. This is "the Chinese color of purity, regeneration, hope, harmony, and growth." This Viridian finish is complemented by 22-inch bright-machined wheels with Viridian center pockets on each spoke and Cubrian Green leather in the cabin, along with a matching "piano-finished" (read: ultra-glossy) veneer.
The cabin is where you really feel the luxury, with over 100 meters of bright white cross-stitched thread used on the door cars, seatbacks, and that aforementioned Cumbrian Green veneer. According to Mulliner, this shade of green is a "modernization and refreshment of Spruce Green with a more contemporary feel, inspired by the British countryside."
The Viridian shade on the exterior is touted as a "mysterious dark emerald" and was originally created for the EXP 10 Speed 6 concept, but it looks right at home here too. Bentley says this is a dark shade of spring green "situated between cyan and green on the color wheel." It has flecks of amber and gold too, so Bentley really has thought of the subtle details that you'll only pick up after examining this one-off closely. Typically, no mention is made of the price paid by this anonymous Chinese customer, but with such exquisite finishes throughout the car, you can bet it cost well into six-figure territory.
