Bentley Mulsanne W.O. Edition marks British marque's 100th birthday

Bentley Mulsanne W.O Edition pays homage to founder’s 1930 original

Bentley will celebrate its 100th anniversary next year, and to celebrate, the company is releasing 100 special-edition Mulsannes. Just 100 will be made, and it's tailored inside and out with design cues from the last auto Walter Owen Bentley designed for the brand - the 1930 8-Litre.

The special Mulsanne is called the Mulsanne W.O. Edition by Mulliner, and just 100 examples will be built by Bentley's Mulliner personalization department. It featured the most powerful engine of any vehicle available in Britain at the time - a 7,983cc straight six. One of these will be a slice of the crankshaft from the engine in W.O. Bentley's actual 8 Litre.

The edition's interior is the focal point, though.

The limited edition Mulsanne takes design inspiration from W.O.'s original 8-litre and includes a chrome bonnet strip and optional chrome radiator shell and grille, topped with the Flying B mascot.

The Mulliner illuminated cocktail cabinet will feature a display window, behind which a slide of the 8 Litre's crankshaft is showcased, with an inscription detailing the significance of this piece. The founder's signature is also embossed on the headrests of the seats, which are wrapped in Bentley's Fireglow and Beluga hides.

There are lamb's wool rugs, glass tumblers and privacy curtains to mimic the luxurious designs seen in cabins of the 1930s. Buyers can opt for the W.O. package on any of the three Mulsanne derivatives now offered.

The Mulsanne W.O. Edition will make its debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in late August and customer deliveries will begin in 2019.
