Bentley SZR by Mulliner

Bentley launches 3 limited edition models

DUBAI, June 27, 2017

Bentley has introduced three ‘SZR by Mulliner’ models based on Continental GTC V8 S to commemorate Bentley and Al Habtoor Motors’ Dubai showroom on Sheikh Zayed Road.

Designed by Mulliner, Bentley’s bespoke coach building division, the models feature eye-catching Orange Flame paintwork, a unique interior trim, and Bentley’s acclaimed V8 powerplant.

Stephen Reynolds, regional director at Bentley Motors, said: “We wanted to do something special for our loyal UAE customers, and these one-off Mulliner models offer a truly exclusive proposition, befitting such an important event in Bentley’s history. We are particularly proud to have developed the ‘SZR by Mulliner’ in recognition of the special relationship that Bentley has with Al Habtoor Motors, who are one of our most important global partners.”

The limited edition model is a glowing example of Mulliner’s flare and passion, exemplified by the contrasting Orange Flame and Ghost White paintwork.

The striking body kit features Orange Flame bonnet, radiator shell, windscreen surround and door mirrors, and is complemented by the 21-inch six twin spoke black machined rims and unique treadplates engraved with the words “SZR by Mulliner”.

An exceptional tri-tone interior required the creation of a new trim: Sparkle Carbon. This was developed from meshing three different fabrics – carbon fibre, copper foil and metal wire – which were then lacquered, polished and cut to size and applied to the fascia panel, console and instrument panel.

The look of the convertible is further elevated by the exclusive interior with Linen as the main hide with Beluga and Orange touches, fluted seats and Mulliner’s signature diamond quilting. Other touches include Mulliner embroidery on all four headrests and a steering wheel with an orange “12 o’clock” stripe.

Enduring performance and efficiency

Under the bonnet of the ‘SZR by Mulliner’ limited edition lies Bentley’s acclaimed 4-litre twin-turbochargedV8 powertrain, which is mated to an eight-speed transmission.

The engine can deliver a maximum 528 PS (520 bhp/388 kW) and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque. With a top speed of 308 km/h, the spirited model can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 4.7 seconds.

A world class dealership

The ‘SZR by Mulliner’, built in celebration of the Dubai-based Bentley flagship showroom, is the perfect nod to the company’s largest standalone dealership in the world, which covers some 75,000 sq ft.

The Al Habtoor Motors Bentley showroom has been designed to go beyond any previous luxury automotive experience and features one of the world’s most advanced luminary façades, comprising 160,000 LED lights. The impressive entranceway includes one of the world’s first Aqua Graphic Water Curtains which can recognise and project a customer’s name in 3D as soon as they walk through the doors.‎

The unprecedented design encompasses three stories for model display as well as three basement floors for parking, a roof garden, a Bentley merchandise boutique, a VIP Majlis, a specialised customer handover area and a Mulliner room for bespoke commissioning. – TradeArabia News Service
