Bentley’s Flying Spur, Continental GT and Bentayga can now don a tweed interior thanks to the carmaker’s bespoke commissioning division. Four elegant and contemporary tweed door trim patterns give customers an even greater customization choice when specifying their new vehicle, especially to admirers of authentic British heritage and those passionate about the use of sustainable materials.
The tactile woven wool finishing lining the doors transforms the cabin energy into a robust yet tranquil environment, complementing the interior design and natural colour harmony of many of the leather hides that are already throughout the cabin. Four tweed options are currently available on four-door and two-door Grand Tourers: Cheltenham offers a more traditional choice for customers with its countryside greens, while Glen Plaid–Tolsta Beach, named after the rugged Outer Hebrides shores, comes across as confident with its bold check pattern. The more subtle and sophisticated Charcoal and Sand Herringbone tweeds complement dark and light interiors respectively on the two-door and four-door Grand Tourers.
While tweed isn’t a new fabric in Bentley designs -last year, the British manufacturer became the first car brand to offer a tweed effect hood with the Continental GT Convertible, and more recently, it used tweed in the Bentley Mulliner Bacalar, its most bespoke car ever made- it is the first time the fabric is offered as a personalization choice for customers.
The introduction of tweed comes as Bentley outlines Beyond100 strategy aiming at becoming a global leader in sustainable luxury mobility.
