Bentley to celebrate centenary with Mulsanne homage to brand founder

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.

The rich red interior design pays homage to W.O. Bentley's original 8 Litre vehicle from 1930.

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.

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.

The interior is done up in a style that pays homage to the original 8 Litre, as well.

The Mulsanne is already a special vehicle but the Mulsanne W.O. Edition by Mulliner will feature some unique touches. The vehicle also comes with Onyx paintwork, although customers can select other colours from Bentley's colour pallet.

Inside, the Bentley Mulsanne design is based around 1930s luxury living, with an illuminated cocktail cabinet which contains the piece of the original 8-litre's crankshaft in a specially designed display window. The wood dash features the founder's signature, which is also displayed on the front bumper, while there's centenary badging located on the sills and wheel centres. There's also a doodle of the vehicle in question - a Bentley 8 Litre - just so you can explain your wonderfully nerdy artefact to your fellow rear seat passenger as you construct another Jägerbomb. Unfortunately, it was launched at the start of the Great Depression, so only saw production for nine months before the automaker was placed into receivership and eventually purchased by Rolls-Royce.

Next year Bentley is 100 years old. It was bought back by Volkswagen Group-owned Bentley in 2006, when the vehicle then underwent a restoration, including replacing the original crankshaft.
