Bentley Manila Showcases Luxury Craftsmanship With Mulliner Program

Bentley Manila reintroduces Mulliner—the brand’s customization series into the country to offer customers a higher level of personalization that goes above and beyond what a regular Bentley model offers.

Mulliner offers a range of products and services, from premium options that can be fitted to Bentley production cars as they are built to truly unique bespoke luxury cars such as the Bentley Bacalar and the latest Bentley Batur. To date, Mulliner has seen a significant growth with their year-to-date orders already exceeding the entire year of 2021.

To simplify its offerings, three new Mulliner tiers have been introduced: Mulliner Coachbuilt, Mulliner Bespoke, and Curated ‘By Mulliner.’

“Here’s what Mulliner brings to the table: It responds to the requirements of Bentley’s most discerning customers. We have the pleasure of delving into the world of unparalleled craftsmanship with the Bentley Mulliner program. It pushes the boundaries of design, performance, and engineering in crafting Bentleys that are as thrilling to drive as they are captivating to behold,” said Bentley Manila Managing Director Christopher Chan.

Bentley Manila’s Mulliner program fulfills the wishes of buyers who want their Bentayga, Flying Spur, or Continental to be distinct from other brands on the road.

Chan explained that there is nothing quite like the opulence of a Bentley bespoke finish that the Mulliner program offers. For those who opt for the Mulliner program, no request is too difficult to fulfill. From a simple monogrammed upholstery to elaborate tailored body modifications done exclusively by highly skilled Mulliner craftsmen, expect the best that the Bentley brand can offer.

With the Mulliner program, buyers can choose from a virtually limitless palette of colors, leathers, and veneers. “Perhaps you desire a marquetry inlay that depicts a cherished family memory or intricate hand-stitching that embodies your personal design motif; rest assured that our Mulliner artisans will translate your dreams into reality.”

When you buy a Bentley, you have the opportunity to enhance the car even further. Beyond the standard and extended palettes of Bentley exterior paints, Curated “By Mulliner” is a great start to make your car distinct from the rest. With Mulliner’s curated premium range of solid, metallic, satin, and pearlescent paints, it’s easy to make your ride a sure head-turner on the road.

The Curated “By Mulliner” range also includes duo-tone options for the Bentayga, featuring pairs of colors selected by Mulliner’s designers to enhance the car’s sleek form. Commissioning a car with a Mulliner exterior finish is easy since one could simply browse the available colors on the Bentley Configurator and discuss the choices, just as you would any other option.

Mulliner Bespoke Bentleys, on the other hand, offer a wide range of stunning bespoke finishes, including specialty veneers and precious metals, making the Bentley a distinctive ride.

Materials like ancient stone veneers, glittering 18-carat gold-plated organ stops, and pinstriped and painted veneers are mostly unavailable to other car manufacturers.

Finally, Mulliner Coachbuilt is the ultimate in personal commissioning. The Mulliner Coachbuilt team of designers, engineers, and artisans can bring your dreams to life, combining their skills with modern sustainable design, cutting-edge engineering, and innovation.

The Bentleys produced not only exceed the unique demands of those who commission them but also set new standards in luxury design. These Bentleys are very limited, with exclusive production runs that buyers can tailor to their personal tastes.

One of the most recent Mulliner Coachbuilt creations is the Umbra, based on the Bentley Bentayga S. This range is so exclusive that even the fade design on the bumper and accents on the wheels are hand-painted. The bespoke interior mirrors the exterior accent colors and features extended Dinamica (a microfiber) and carbon fiber materials. The perforated fade design on the seats and door cards reflects the exterior’s hand-painted fade.

Carbon fiber elements with a contrasting color complete the Umbra’s (a name inspired by the innermost and darkest part of a shadow during a lunar eclipse) dark and menacing vibe.

Exclusively available for the Asia Pacific-South market, the Umbra can be ordered in seven accent color options: Vivid Red, Mandarin, Kingfisher (bright blue), Key Lime (striking yellowish-green), Cyber Yellow, Vivid Purple, and Cherry Blossom (Sakura pink).

“Driving a Bentley is a statement of success, but a Bentley Mulliner is a true expression of one’s individuality. It’s a car crafted to one’s desires, a testament to one’s discerning taste, and a legacy that will endure for generations,” Chan said.

Mulliner of England started as a horse saddle manufacturer in the 16th century. By the 19th century, it created coaches, and by the 20th century, it turned its attention on handcrafted car bodies and cabins. By 1959, it had become part of Bentley and started handling the company’s personal commissioning division.
