Bentley is marking its 95th anniversary in the UK by unveiling the ‘Mulsanne 95’, a special edition of the company’s flagship model. Only 15 examples will be made by Bentley’s Mulliner division in Crewe and all are reserved for customers in the United Kingdom.
Bentley says the British-inspired colours, as well as a unique wood veneer and range of design cues, all emphasise the exclusive nature of the Mulsanne.
The red, white and blue colour palette is complemented by exterior design touches unique to Mulsanne 95, with a dark tint finish given to the iconic Flying B bonnet mascot and the 21-inch five-spoke wheels.
On the inside, occupants are greeted by illuminated treadplates featuring a bespoke ‘NINETY FIVE’ script and union flag detail. A ‘95’ emblem has been embroidered onto the front and rear seats as well as featuring on the passenger fascia panel.
The Mulsanne 95 also features a rare wood veneer selected by Bentley from a huge walnut tree – estimated to be between 300 and 400 years old – which came down at Fulbeck Hall in Lincolnshire during a heavy storm in 2007. The Fulbeck Walnut veneer features in the signature ‘ring of wood’ that encompasses the entire interior, and its pattern displays a rippled effect which sweeps through the cabin. This veneer is complemented by a blue and white two-tone leather split with red contrast stitching to continue the British theme.
