Bentley Mulsanne W.O. Edition marks British marque's 100th birthday

Bentley and Mulliner have revealed a new Mulsanne special edition, named after Bentley's founder.

Launched in 1930, the Bentley 8-litre was the last auto to be designed by Bentley's founder W.O. Bentley.

In the rear, an illuminated cocktail cabinet has a veneer that depicts the grille and headlights of the Bentley 8-Litre, and there's even a piece of crankshaft from W.O.'s personal vehicle showcased inside. It featured the most powerful engine of any auto available in Britain at the time - a 7,983cc straight six.

The interior is done up in a style that pays homage to the original 8 Litre, as well. It was bought back by Volkswagen Group-owned Bentley in 2006, when the auto then underwent a restoration, including replacing the original crankshaft.

The edition's interior is the focal point, though. In particular, the auto pays homage to the Bentley founder's personal 1930 8 Litre.

The hero color for the vehicle will be Onyx black, though customers will be able to specify alternatives, and there will be further special touches such as a chrome hood strip and available chrome radiator shell and grille. The Mulsanne also includes a W.O. Bentley signature badge on the lower bumper and self-levelling wheel centres and door treadplates, which both incorporate a specially designed centenary badge. An inscription sits just below this, detailing the significance of this piece of Bentley history. The vehicle will make its official debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in August, and the first customer deliveries will happen next year, coinciding with Bentley's 100th year.

There are lamb's wool rugs, glass tumblers and privacy curtains to mimic the luxurious designs seen in cabins of the 1930s.

The W.O. Edition by Mulliner is available on all three Mulsanne models, including the Speed.
