Bentley Hatfield presents the ‘de Havilland Collection; a line-up of bespoke Bentley models inspired by the famed British aviation manufacturer. Bentley Hatfield sits on a site formerly occupied by de Havilland, where legendary aircraft like the Mosquito, Comet Racer and Comet Airliner were produced. The connections run deeper still, with the Merlin engine that powered the Mosquito built at the Pyms Lane factory in Crewe, where Bentley today produces each of its vehicles.
The ‘de Havilland Collection’ is marked out by a Cambrian Grey exterior, with a Tri-Tone painted bodykit. A Tornado Red pinstripe – in homage to the Comet Racer – is nestled in between a Beluga and Cambrian Grey to provide a subtle nod to de Havilland. Other bespoke Mulliner touches include the Cambrian Grey-painted lower brightwork.
Inside, the subtle exterior theme is emphasised with a bespoke Mulliner colour split across the front of the cabin that pairs a Hotspur red main hide with a Beluga secondary hide, contrasted by Mulliner White piping. The fascia and door waistrails feature a split of Beluga and Cambrian grey, intersected by a chrome pinstripe.
