On July 10, 2018, Bentley Motors started their 100th year and they are now counting down the days until their centenary in 2019. To celebrate, Bentley is starting things off with a very special car. Called the Mulsanne W.O. Edition by Mulliner, this exclusive car pays homage to W.O. Bentley, the founder of the company.
Bentley will be creating just 100 examples of the Mulsanne W.O. Edition by Mulliner, a perfect number considering the upcoming milestone. Inside each of these celebratory cars is something very unique: a slice of W.O. Bentley’s personal 8 Litre car that’s been taken from the crankshaft. This slice is on display on the center console, right behind the cupholders with a plate that says: “TAKEN FROM THE ORIGINAL ENGINE OF W.O’S 8 LITRE ‘GK 706’.”
Customers can order the Mulsanne W.O. Edition spec for any of the three models in the Mulsanne range. Features include a split interior made from Heritage Hide, Beluga black wheels, a cocktail cabinet or bottle cooler where the slice of crankshaft is located, and more.
Bentley Motors will be showing off the Bentley Mulsanne W.O. Edition by Mulliner at Monterey Car Week in August. Customer deliveries are set for 2019.
