Bentley Unveils Exclusive Istanbul Silhouette Collection by Mulliner

Bentley Motors has launched an exclusive collection of limited edition models, paying homage to the vibrant and historic city of Istanbul. This unique collection, created by Bentley's Mulliner bespoke division, features three distinctive models: the Continental GT Azure V8, Flying Spur Azure V8, and Bentayga Azure V8. Each car is a masterpiece, handbuilt at Bentley's factory in Crewe, England, and exclusively available through Bentley Istanbul.

The Istanbul Silhouette Collection showcases the city's cultural heritage and famous landmarks, including the Sultanahmet Mosque, Maiden's Tower, Galata Tower, and Bosphorus Bridges. The Mulliner team worked closely with Bentley Istanbul to create a color concept inspired by the rich blue and turquoise hues of the Bosphorus Strait and the open skies reflected in its waters. The exterior of each car is finished in striking Black Sapphire paint, accented with sporty 'Dragonfly' blue highlights on the carbon side skirts and special Silhouette tread plates.

Inside, the luxurious interiors continue the color theme with Imperial Blue and Beluga hides, reminiscent of the patterned tiles of the Sultanahmet Mosque. Special Istanbul Silhouette embroidery in Dragonfly Blue adorns the headrests and cushions, depicting the city's iconic landmarks. Unique to this collection, 'Piano Imperial Blue' wood and 'Galaxy' stone are used on the front panel and infotainment area, enhancing the sense of exclusivity and bespoke craftsmanship.

The market for bespoke craftsmanship has increased here, so we anticipate strong interest from our discerning customers for this exclusive collection, which celebrates our city’s unique blend of history, art, and modernity."

Balazs Rooz, Director at Bentley Motors Europe, added: "Mulliner represents the pinnacle of the Bentley experience, with bespoke details that reflect a place, time or celebrate an occasion. Each limited edition car features beautiful interior decor, stitching details and visuals of Istanbul, while also using sustainable materials and designs from the city itself, all carefully created in the Mulliner workshop in Crewe."

The Bentley Mulliner Istanbul Silhouette Collection is set to go on sale in early June and will be available for viewing at the Bentley Istanbul showroom, represented by the brand’s long-standing partner, Doğuş Otomotiv. A pop-up store in Galaport will also showcase these remarkable vehicles, offering a closer look at their bespoke details and luxurious features.
