Past Collections

At Mulliner, we believe our purpose is to respond to the requirements of the most discerning of individual Bentley drivers. Yet there are times when our team of artisans’ creativity is harnessed to produce extremely limited production runs of Bentley models. We created our Mulliner Limited Editions to reflect carefully chosen and inspirational themes. These might have special significance for customers in China, the Middle East or one of our other markets. But what they all share is the standard of Mulliner craftsmanship, taking concept of Bentley luxury and pushing it as near to perfection as possible.

MULSANNE 6.75 EDITION

The Mulsanne 6.75 Edition by Mulliner not only celebrated the production life of the Mulsanne, but will actually be some of the last Mulsanne cars hand-built in our Crewe factory by our team of skilled craftspeople: a fitting way to farewell this most luxurious of Bentley models.

The truly unique Mulsanne 6.75 Edition by Mulliner will be based on the existing 530 bhp, 1100 Nm Mulsanne Speed – the most driver-focused ultra-luxury sedan ever created. Celebrating the 6.75 litre engine, there are interior and exterior design cues reflecting this story.

A bespoke colour split will be available in four single tone hides – Imperial Blue, Beluga, Fireglow and Newmarket Tan with Silver accents throughout the cabin. Silver seat piping is complemented by accent hide around the centre console, deep pile overmat bindings, and the accent colour showing through the perforated hide to the seats and door inserts.The centre console stack itself, together with the rear cabin console, will be finished in silver-painted veneer – with a unique metal commemorative plaque fitted to the front console. Waistrails are Grand Black with dark engine spin inserts, fascias are Grand Black.

Under the bonnet, the engine intake manifold will be finished in black in lieu of the traditional silver, and the Engine Number Plaque – traditionally signed by the craftsman that built the engine – will be signed by Bentley’s Chairman and Chief Executive, Adrian Hallmark.

Continental GT Convertible Number 1 Edition

The Continental GT Convertible Number 1 Edition by Mulliner pays homage to a car that defined an era. With a supercharged 4½ litre engine and lightweight aluminium body, the original No. 1 Blower delivered incredibly powerful and agile performance for its day, setting the Outer Circuit lap speed record at Brooklands in 1932.

Sharing the same exhilaration of driving a powerful car with the wind on your face, the Number 1 Edition elevates the contemporary design of the new Continental GT Convertible with distinctive detailing inspired by its namesake. This modern interpretation of a renowned car is an exciting fusion of Bentley’s past, present and future.

Inside, details inspired by the No. 1 Blower continue to enhance this car’s unique design. These range from the Number 1 treadplates and Grand Black veneer with a chrome strip and Number 1 overlay, to the turned aluminium Engine Spin finish, British Jaeger Number 1 clock face and 18-carat gold-plated organ stops – reminiscent of the switchgear found in the No. 1 Blower - on the centre console.

The cabin is upholstered in high-gloss heritage hides, popular in the era of the Blower. To continue the theme of the exterior you can choose between Cricket Ball or Beluga, with the Alcantara steering wheel and gear lever matched to the main hide. The use of a single colour throughout unifies the modern interior, while the debossed ‘B’ from the No. 1 Blower’s door pads has been added to both the door pads and headrests, further capturing the racing quality of the No. 1.

CONTINENTAL GT NUMBER 9 EDITION

This limited Edition Continental GT features a series of interior and exterior design tributes to one of the most famous cars in Bentley’s history – the No. 9 Blower. The original No. 9 is famed for breaking records, wowing spectators and capturing hearts and minds during the 1920s and 1930s. The character of the car made it an instant favourite and an enduring legend of motor racing. Indeed, author Ian Fleming was so taken with the Blower, he made it the original Bond car. You can read more about the legendary Bentley Blower here.

Each of the 100 cars in the Continental GT Number 9 Edition contains something incredibly rare – a piece of the racing seat from Sir Tim Birkin’s iconic 1930 No. 9 Le Mans race car. It is a seat that contains countless stories, having set several speed records, ensuring its place in Bentley’s history. The original seat was replaced during restoration works on the car – which still races today – and now this priceless piece of Bentley’s story has found a permanent home. A fragment of wood from the seat is proudly displayed in the Bentley Rotating Display, adding a piece of the Bentley story to every car.

The heritage of the No. 9 Blower is visible throughout the cabin of the Continental GT Number 9 Edition. An exclusive British Jaeger clock face and the turned aluminium Engine Spin finish on the central console evoke the power and racing pedigree of the original car. The debossed B from the door pads of the original No. 9 has been lovingly recreated on the headrests and door pads, and the hides are given a high-gloss finish, to more closely represent the style of the 1930s.

THE MULSANNE W.O. EDITION BY MULLINER

The Mulsanne W.O. Edition by Mulliner isn’t just inspired by W.O. Bentley’s own 8 Litre – it even contains a part of it. 20 years ago, the crankshaft of W.O.’s car reached the end of its natural life and had to be replaced. The Mulliner engineers were amazed to discover that it used incredibly similar materials, engineering and production processes to the Bentley crankshafts made today. To commemorate Bentley’s Centenary, this defining piece of the company’s engineering heritage was carefully cut into 100 sections for display in the new Mulliner cars. Each finished piece is proudly displayed between the two rear seats, visible through a window in the veneered tray of the bespoke drinks cabinet. With no two sections the same, every car is truly unique.

W.O. built his car at a pivotal moment in history. He and his fellow racing drivers were part of a generation whose youth had been overshadowed by the First World War. In the 1920s and 1930s, the Bentley Boys and Girls, as his drivers came to be called, made up for lost time. They lived exuberant, hedonistic lives of the sort famously depicted in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. Cars and motor racing were fundamental to this thrill-seeking lifestyle – and Bentley flourished as a result.

The Mulsanne W.O. Edition by Mulliner is infused with the spirit of this exhilarating era, with elements such as a metallic bonnet strip, heritage hides and a carefully curated selection of deep, rich colours. But it also delivers all the advantages of the 21st century Mulsanne, providing phenomenal power alongside the very last word in comfort. It’s a combination of which the Bentley Boys and Girls would most definitely have approved.
