The New Mulsanne Sinjari
It’s hard for a flash car to stand out in a city where even the Police force have got Lamborghinis, but Mulliner, Bentley’s legendary coach-building division, has really taken bespoke craftsmanship to new heights recently with their immaculate production of four exclusive (and extraordinary) limited edition Mulsanne Sinjari models.
Designed especially for select customers in the Middle East, the Mulsanne Sinjari has combined Middle Eastern heritage with traditional British craftsmanship to create a car that is truly unique. Mulliner is renowned for creating limited editions vehicles that hold special or sentimental significance to discerning customers from different regions and its pre-eminent designers have brought to life yet another exquisite vision with a Bentley inspired by the ancient art of falconry. Model deliveries have already begun, with two of the vehicles having recently arrived in the region with the final two nearing completion.
Paying tribute to the sport that has been at the heart of the region’s heritage for the last 4,000 years, the Mulsanne Sinjari takes its inspiration from the prized Sinjari falcon. This graceful bird of prey, found in many parts of the Arabian Penninsula and hailing from the great Sinjar mountains, shares it’s phenomenal performance, elegance and beauty with the Mulsanne.
Featuring a captivating exterior that takes its cue from the hunting bird’s plumage, the design is anything but bird-brained. With the addition of an eye-catching gold plated Flying ‘B’, the Mulsanne Sinjari shares its unique exterior design with the Bentley Mulsanne. The imposing front end is dominated by a large stainless steel vertical-vane grille that acts as a throwback to older Bentley models.
The one-piece bumper, radiator shell and bonnet integrate seamlessly with flush joins to give the luxury sedan an immense presence on the roads. The Sinjari is just as impressive on the inside as well, with illuminated treatplates welcoming the occupant to one of the lushest cabins in the world. The cabin features Mulliner’s signature diamond quilted leather trim, finished in black and white with a contrasting white ceiling and “Sinjari” embroidered on the front headrests - you know, just in case you forgot what the car was called.
Handcrafted veneers adorn the interior and are made from a range of woods large enough to put Pokémon professors to shame. The attention to detail is truly second-to-none within the vehicle as Bentley’s trademark quality is present throughout.
The Sinjari might not be able to fly like an eagle, but it can certainly move as fast as one. As a turbo charged version of Bentley’s iconic 6.75-litre V8 engine allows the car to generate an astonishing 1,020 Nm of torque that can catapult the Mulsanne Sinjari to a top speed of 296km/h. It’s fast, but not furious, as the Mulsanne promises a comfortable ride for both driver and passenger.
If you want a car that makes you stand out in the crowd. This one’s for you.
