  • Limited edition trio consists of the Continental GT Azure V8, Flying Spur Azure V8 and Bentayga Azure V8 models

(Munich, 20 June 2024) Bentley Motors today introduces a trio of limited edition models that includes a Continental GT Azure V8, a Flying Spur Azure V8 and a Bentayga Azure V8, all handbuilt at Bentley's factory in Crewe, England and only available through Bentley Istanbul. The exclusive trio - the Bentley Mulliner Istanbul Silhouette Collection - celebrates the rich cultural heritage, world-famous landmarks and beautiful art of the historic Turkish city of Istanbul. 

Working closely with the team at Bentley Istanbul, the craftspeople from Bentley's Mulliner bespoke division chose an accent colour concept for the Istanbul Silhouette Collection that is inspired by both the rich blue and turquoise hues of the Bosphorus Strait that connects the Black Sea to the Sea of Marmara, and the open skies reflected in its waters. 

On the exterior, striking Black Sapphire paint provides the perfect canvas for sporty highlights in 'Dragonfly' blue, such as the blue strip to the carbon side skirts and the special Silhouette tread plates. 

The colour theme carries on throughout each car's interior, with special Istanbul Silhouette embroidery of the city's Maiden's Tower, the Galata Tower and the famous bridges over the Bosphorus displayed in Dragonfly Blue across the headrests and cushions in the rear. These are covered with hides of Imperial Blue and Beluga, inspired by the clear blue patterned tiles of the famous Sultanahmet Mosque. 

Further distinguishing the Istanbul Silhouette Collection models, 'Piano Imperial Blue' wood and natural jewel-like 'Galaxy' stone feature on the front panel and infotainment area, while another personalised feature is the specially designed key box that serves as a reminder of the exclusive nature of the car and the equally remarkable location.

The city of Istanbul enjoys a strategic position in the world, sitting at the point where East meets West. It is a place where European cultures mix with those of Asia, in a riot of colourful streetscapes and a unique blend of history and art, juxtaposed with modernity and innovation. To appeal to its discerning Turkish customers, the limited edition Mulliner models have been designed to blend the city's cultural heritage with Bentley's commitment to luxury and innovation.

Kerem Güven, General Manager of Bentley Istanbul, commented: "We have seen the Bentley brand grow and prosper over the last 17 years in Istanbul. 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."

Bentley Mulliner's Istanbul Silhouette Collection will go on sale in early June and will be available for viewing at the showroom. Bentley Istanbul is represented by the brand’s long-standing partner, Doğuş Otomotiv, and is located at Maslak in the Doğuş Center. There is also a pop-up store in Galaport.
