Limited to a 100 units, the Mulsanne W.O. Edition by Mulliner will celebrate the marque's upcoming centenary as well as a homage to the founder's final design.

13 Jul 2018 | International News : U.K.


Bentley Motors is demonstrating the beauty of bespoke with a new very special limited edition Mulsanne. The Mulsanne W.O. Edition by Mulliner pays homage to the founding father of the company and incorporates a genuine piece of Bentley history in every car.

Each Mulsanne W.O. Edition holds a slice from W.O. Bentley's personal car
Inside each of the 100 limited edition Mulsannes, a slice of the original crankshaft taken from W.O. Bentley's personal 8 Litre car decades ago - the last model he designed for Bentley Motors back in 1930 - is displayed.

As Bentley approaches its centenary in 2019, Mulliner designers reflected on the last 99 years of an extraordinary British automotive story to imagine the new Mulsanne W.O. Edition. In doing so, they have created a truly unique collector's item.

The interior displays a range of exquisite features inspired by luxury living in the 1930s - key to which is the Mulliner illuminated cocktail cabinet. A marquetry scene on the handcrafted unit - depicting the geometric front matrix grille and head light of the 8 Litre - reveals a display window, inside which a piece of the crankshaft from W.O. Bentley's own 8 Litre car is showcased. Just below the machined metal display case is an inscription detailing the significance of the Bentley artefact.

The Mulsanne W.O. Edition can be specified on any of the three-model Mulsanne range, based on customer preference. Key features include a colour split interior cut from Heritage Hide reflecting the patina of vintage cars, elegant Beluga black wheels, and a stunning cocktail cabinet or bottle cooler.

This special model will make its public debut at Monterey Car Week in California U.S.A in late August, with customer deliveries commencing in 2019 - Bentley's centenary year.
