Mulliner Takes New Bentley GT Convertible To New Luxury Heights With 400,000 Stitches Inside



Bentley’s Mulliner division has revealed its take on the Continental GT Convertible as the new luxury flagship of the range.

Making a car like the Bentley Continental GT Convertible more luxurious might sound a bit hard for some but apparently Mulliner has its way to appeal to customers looking for that extra attention to detail.

Starting from the outside, the new Bentley Continental GT Mulliner Convertible distinguishes itself from its ‘lesser’ sibling by its unique double-diamond front grille and matching bespoke side vents, all finished in either silver or black.

The exterior look is also complimented by a set of all-new 22-inch 10-spoke painted and polished wheels with floating center caps to keep the Bentley badge always level with the ground.

The new Double Diamond theme continues throughout the new Bentley, with the cabin featuring the exclusive Diamond-in-Diamond quilting design that’s featured on all four seats, the door cards, rear quarters and -for the first time- on the tonneau cover.

Mulliner says that there are almost 400,000 stitches inside the cabin of their new Conti GT Convertible, with each carefully aligned diamond containing precisely 712 stitches. The embroidery process alone took 18 months to develop.

Customers will be able to choose between eight custom-made three-color combos for the handcrafted interior of the new Continental GT Mulliner Convertible. The center console features a new diamond milled technical finish, and is accompanied by a brushed silver Breitling timepiece. The interior ambience includes seven different themes for the mood lighting, illuminated Mulliner tread plates, and a range-topping Naim 18-speaker audio system.

The new Bentley Continental GT Mulliner Convertible will be available with both the V8 and the W12 powertrains; the latter is fitted with a twin-turbo 6.0-liter engine, giving it a 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.8) and a 207 mph top speed (333 km/h). The twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 model is capable of a 0-60 mph in 4 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.1) and of a top speed of 198 mph (318 km/h).
