Mulliner Limited Edition: Mulsanne 6.75 Edition

As the flagship Bentley Mulsanne reaches the end of its production, Bentley are celebrating the story of the ultimate luxurious sedan with a final special edition. For the last forty years, the Mulsanne has been the ultimate statement of Bentley’s innovation, craft skills and automotive artistry.

The exquisite Mulsanne 6.75 Edition* by Mulliner will be restricted to just 30 unique examples, representing a fitting send-off for a masterpiece of British automotive engineering and craftsmanship. The car is inspired by – and takes its name from - the legendary 6¾-litre engine, which has celebrated its sixtieth year in continuous production in 2019.

Inspired by ultra-luxury

The Mulsanne 6.75 Edition by Mulliner will not only celebrate 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 UNIQUE FUSION OF CRAFTSMANSHIP

The interior ‘organ stop’ ventilation controls are replaced by designs capped by miniature versions of the engine oil cap, and a unique 6.75 Edition motif is stitched into the seats, and recreated in chrome badging for the exterior and the engine bay.

The same logo will be projected by the LED Welcome Lamps. The Bentley clock in the front dash and gauges will feature schematic cutaway drawings of the engine itself.

DISTINCTIVE DETAILS

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.

Craft and customisation

To the exterior of the car, gloss black brightware will accentuate the individual customer’s choice of paintwork, but with headlamps and tail lamps wrapped in bright chrome.

Dark tint treatments to the Flying B bonnet mascot, Mulliner Serenity radiator grille and tail pipe finishers bring definition to the exterior of the car, while the 21” five-spoke Mulsanne Speed wheel will feature a unique Bright-machined face with gloss black pockets. Other exterior brightware including the bonnet strip is also gloss black.

A very special engine

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.

History reimagined

The Bentley Mulsanne is an iconic four-door saloon that set the benchmark in the luxury sector when it first appeared in 1980. Designed, engineered and hand-built in Crewe, England, the Mulsanne’s 6¾-litre engine is also the world’s longest-serving V8 of its type in continuous production. The powerful engine was first used in the 1959 Bentley S2 and has continued to power the Mulsanne until today.
