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. 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 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 featuring a slice of W.O.’s own 8 Litre crankshaft set into the armrest. This special model will make its public debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in late August, with customer deliveries commencing in 2019 — Bentley’s centenary year. The 10th of July 2018 marked the start of Bentley’s 100th year and the countdown to the brand’s centenary in 2019. This extraordinary milestone — reached by only a special few companies — will be a cause for celebration of the company’s history and its global success today.
