Bentley has teamed up with their oldest retailer, Jack Barclay, and tailor Huntsman to unveil two bespoke limited editions at the Savile Row Concours.
Dubbed the Huntsman Edition, the special editions are based on the Bentayga Extended Wheelbase Azure and Continental GTC Speed, and “translate Huntsman’s 174 years of bespoke heritage” into modern automobiles. As part of this effort, the vehicles have a unique interior with embroidered Huntsman headrests as well as the brand’s charcoal four point star design. They’re joined by honeycomb cross stitching and special sill plates.
Even the keys have been given an upscale makeover as the special editions come with a key box that is “inlaid with tweed and stamped with the Huntsman logo.”

Getting into specifics, the Bentayga EWB Huntsman Edition has a Burgundy metallic exterior with bright chrome accents and 22-inch wheels featuring a bright machined finish. They’re joined by Huntsman Edition badges on the rear pillar.
Moving inside, the crossover blends Huntsman tweed with Damson and Portland leather in a “masterclass of craftsmanship.” Bentley went on to say tweed accents can be found throughout the cabin including on the shifter, door pockets, stowage areas and grab handles. Elsewhere, there’s Piano Damson veneers, Huntsman embroidery, and Huntsman tweed micro-piping.

The Continental GTC Speed Huntsman Edition goes in a different direction as it has a grey satin exterior with black accents as well as black 22-inch wheels. They’re joined by a black Huntsman badge on the front fenders.
The cabin embraces a dark aesthetic as Beluga and Porpoise leather contrast with Huntsman tweed. There’s also a Galaxy Stone dual finish veneer, which has a granite-like appearance.
Bentley said the two examples are “part of a collection of 1 of 5 of each model.” The automaker added customers will be able to “influence many aspects of the Huntsman editions” as they’re bespoke by design.
While that isn’t too surprising, buyers will receive a Huntsman jacket to go with their vehicle. However, this isn’t something off-the-rack as customers can travel to the company’s Savile Row store to choose their preferred cloth and get measured to “ensure their jacket is crafted exactly to their requirements.”
