Ninety years ago, the first Le Mans 24 Hours race took place, with Bentley being the only British automaker to participate. To honor their participation and the 90th anniversary of the race, Bentley has created the Mulsanne Le Mans Edition, which will be unveiled at Pebble Beach.
“Pebble Beach, for us, is the ideal place to debut and display our Le Mans Limited Edition Mulsanne model and to showcase our flagship vehicle in its Limited Edition livery to a very knowledgeable audience of automotive enthusiasts and Bentley owners from around the world.” – Christophe Georges, COO of Bentley Motors America.
This Le Mans Edition Bentley Mulsanne blends both sportsmanship and heritage into one brilliant car. The specifications of the car have been inspired by a driver from Bentley’s six victories at the Le Mans 24 Hours race and include:
- Diamond-quilted hide seat covering
- Diamond-quilted hide door panels
- Drilled alloy foot pedals
- Sports-tuned suspension
- Sports-tuned steering
- ‘Quad’ effect tailpipe finishers
- Two-piece five-spoke dark tint allow wheels
Be sure to check back after Pebble Beach (August 18th) for pictures, news, and updates.
