Since its introduction in 2010, Bentley’s Mulsanne has been the auto manufacturer’s flagship vehicle — functioning as a representation of all of the brand’s luxuriousness and mechanical prowess. However, starting in 2020, the Mulsanne will be replaced by the Flying Spur. As a kind of passing of the torch, Bentley has tasked Mulliner with the creation of an ultra-limited Mulsanne 6.75 Edition to say goodbye to this legendary model.
While the 6.75 Edition Mulsanne boasts a bevy of exquisite details and features — like oil-cap-inspired cabin ventilation controls, a unique upholstery motif and chrome badging, and cutaway engine schematic art on the clock and minor gauges — the real star of the show is under the hood. That’s because this special model was inspired by and is powered by the brand’s legendary twin-turbo 6.75L engine, the longest-serving V8 in continuous production in the world. To up the ante even further, only 30 of these spectacular cars will be built and, once production on the Mulsanne halts this spring, that’s the end of the line for good. Pricing and availability have yet to be revealed.
