Bentley Mulliner has introduced the Continental GT Convertible Equestrian Edition.

On Friday, Bentley Mulliner, the branch of the British brand responsible for creating totally customized commissioned vehicles for their most fastidious clients, presented the Equestrian Edition of the Continental GT Convertible; the one-of-a-kind model was inspired by The Cheltenham Festival, one of the biggest horse-racing festivals in the UK.

On the headrest of each seat, an icon of a horse and rider have been embroidered onto the sustainable Saddle hide upholstery. Complementing this caramel-colored fabric is a Cumbrian Green hide, both of which cover various cabin components apart from the seats including the dash, steering wheel and door panels, some of which are also finished with veneer and box wood inlays.

Matching the green hide found throughout the interior is Spruce-colored exterior paint job which is complemented by a glossy black finish on all the components on the standard Continental GT Convertible which are usually chrome like the radiator grille, bezels and wheels.

In terms of tech, the model has been outfitted with a slew of driver assistance systems including Lane Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control and Night Vision, among others.

This Continental GT Convertible Equestrian Edition was specially commissioned by the Bentley Bristol dealership.
