We know how leading carmakers celebrate their anniversary, making debuts of a new edition, just like what Bentley did. Celebrating the 95th anniversary, Bentley introduces in the UK the Mulsanne 95, a special-edition version of its exclusive predecessor Mulsanne sedan. The notable aspect is that it comes in three bespoke exterior colors namely Britannia Blue, Empire Red and Oxford White. A bonnet mascot ‘Flying B’ is Bentley’s iconic trademark tucked on the hood, plus model-specific 21 inch five spoke alloy wheels.
There are some things unchanged such as 6.7 liter turbocharged V8 engine with 505 hp and 752 lbs-ft torque. What’s cool is its 8-speed automatic transmission. To make a difference in luxurious interior, they have engraved ‘Ninety Five’ on the tread plates, a ‘95’ badge on all seats as well as on fascia panel.
If it’s not a big difference, here’s the big one. Bentley Mulsanne 95 features elegant wood veneer sourced from a giant walnut tree in Lincolnshire, England. The tree is said to be 400 years old and is used in entire interior construction. The wood features unique ripple effect and patterns throughout the cabin. The interior also features blue and white leather dressing and distinguished red stitching accents. Only 15 special editions of Bentley Mulsanne 95 will be built and, hold your breath, reserved only for the British market.
