The Mulsanne W.O Edition is being produced in up to 100 examples by Bentley’s coachbuilding division, Mulliner, and features several unique parts that are nods to the design of the company founder’s 1930 8 Litre grand tourer.
As the last car Walter Owen Bentley designed and used personally, the 8 Litre mixed a black-on-black exterior theme with an ultra-luxurious, wood-trimmed interior. This has been copied in the new car, which is finished in Onyx paint with black wheels and features a bespoke interior trimmed in leather and wood.
The new flagship special edition, which can be specified in standard, Speed or Extended Wheelbase form, gets four wood types inside, as well as aluminium trim. The founder's signature is also embossed on the headrests of the seats, which are wrapped in Bentley’s Fireglow and Beluga hides.
