Bentley Celebrates Pinnacle Mulsanne With Unique Final 6.75 Edition
In 2020, Bentley is producing the exquisite Mulsanne 6.75 Edition by Mulliner: a final edition version of the flagship Mulsanne. The Mulsanne 6.75 Edition will be restricted to just 30 unique cars, 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 this year celebrates its 60th year in continuous production.
The truly unique Mulsanne 6.75 Edition by Mulliner celebrates one of the most iconic cars in Bentley’s illustrious history, and will be based on the pinnacle Mulsanne Speed – the most driver-focused ultra-luxury sedan ever created.
Subtle references to the 6¾-litre V8 engine are evident across the car:
• The interior ‘organ stop’ ventilation controls are replaced by designs capped by miniature versions of the engine oil cap
• 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 faces of the clock and minor gauges will feature schematic cutaway drawings of the engine itself.
‘The Mulsanne has played a pivotal role in maintaining Bentley’s position as global leader of the luxury limousine segment. The flagship of our model range, its longevity is a testament to our ongoing commitment to hand-building the finest motor cars in the world. The new Mulsanne 6.75 Edition is the culmination of that achievement.’
- Chris Craft, Member of the Board, Sales, Marketing and Aftersales at Bentley Motors
Gloss black brightware to the exterior will accentuate the individual customer’s choice of paintwork, and headlamps and tail lamps will be wrapped in bright chrome. Dark tint treatments to the Flying B bonnet mascot, Mulliner Serenity radiator grille and exhaust finishers bring definition to the front of the car, and the 21” five-spoke Mulsanne Speed wheel will feature a unique bright-machined finish with gloss black pockets. Under the bonnet, the engine intake manifold will be finished in black in lieu of 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.
Inside the cabin, a bespoke colour split will be offered in four single tone hides – Imperial Blue, Beluga, Fireglow and Newmarket Tan – with accents in Silver across the cabin through seat piping, 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, together with the rear cabin console, will be finished in silver-painted veneer – with a unique metal commemorative plaque fitted to the front console. Fascias and waistrails will be finished in high-gloss Grand Black, with the latter also featuring inserts in Dark Engine Spin Aluminium.
