The Bentley Dominator was a four-wheel drive SUV, commissioned in 1994 by the Sultan of Brunei. Bentley would eventually produce six Dominators for the Sultan, each with identical specification but different colour schemes. Exact details of the car are very sketchy - but we do know that Bentley borrowed heavily from the Range Rover for the four-wheel drive hardware, and that one Dominator was finished in bright Royal Yellow, with two others in metallic grey and bright red.

The Dominator is one of a host of specials which the Sultan ordered in the early-Nineties to essentially keep Bentley from bankruptcy. The cost of the project was estimated at £3,000,000 per car. Knowledge of the Dominator only entered into the public domain after British auto magazine Autocar published a story using scoop photographs of two Dominators being loaded onto a jet destined for Brunei.

The Sultan's six Dominators are chassis numbers:

  • SCBTH98C5TCH00422
  • SCBTH98C7TCH00423
  • SCBTH98C9TCH00424
  • SCBTH98C0TCH00425
  • SCBTH98C2TCH00426
  • SCBTH98C4TCH00427
