Bentley celebrates 95th anniversary with limited edition Mulsanne


Bentley Mulsanne 95

The British luxury carmaker is 95 this year. To celebrate this milestone it has created a special limited edition version of its flagship Mulsanne limousine.

Called the Mulsanne 95 (which must have taken ages to come up with), the model will be strictly limited to just 15 examples, all of which will be offered exclusively to buyers in the UK.

The car is the work of Bentley's bespoke Mulliner division, which normally looks after individual commissions from well-heeled buyers looking for the ultimate in luxury.

Given its UK only specification, the Mulsanne 95 is avauable in three exterior colours: Britannia Blue, Empire Red and Oxford White. These hues have been created especially for this limited edition and won't be found on any other Bentley models.

Other exterior embellishments include a dark-chrome finish to the Flying B bonnet mascot and a set of unique 21-inch alloy wheels.

As with most of the brand's models, it is in the cabin where Bentley has really gone to town. The wood veneer used extensively inside has been sourced from a tree at Fulbeck Hall, Lincolnshire, estimated to be between 300 and 400 years old, which came down during a storm in 2007.

This walnut veneer is used in the car's 'ring of wood' that wraps around the entire cabin, and amply shows off the skills of Bentleys craftsmen.

The seats mirror the exterior colour scheme, being upholstered in blue and white two-tone leather with contrasting red stitching. 'Ninety Five' emblems are embroidered into the headrests and applied to the door kick-plates to complete the makeover.

Powerplants have not been changed as the same 6.75-litre V8 resides underneath the bonnet, developing 505bhp that is capable of propelling the 2.7-tonne machine from 0-60mph in just 5.1 seconds and on to a top speed of 184mph.

If you're interested in the Mulsanne 95, all fifteen models are available to order from Bentley's UK dealer network.
