Bentley is waving goodbye to the 6.75-liter engine, the longest-serving V8 in continuous production out there, as well as the Mulsanne luxury saloon with a limited edition of the car, dubbed the Mulsanne 6.75 Edition by Mulliner.
Restricted to just 30 examples, it boasts glossy black details on the outside, head and taillights wrapped in bright chrome, and Mulliner Serenity grille, Flying B mascot and exhaust tips with a dark look. The special edition Mulsanne rides on 21-inch five-spoke wheels and features black finished intake manifold and engine number plaque signed by CEO Adrian Hallmark.
For the interior, customers can choose between four shades named the Imperial Blue, Beluga, Fireglow and Newmarket Tan. Silver accents have also been added to the cabin and can be found on the dashboard and center console. The seat piping sports a grey look and users will be greeted by the ‘Edition 6.75’ puddle lights upon opening the doors. The unique metal plaque fitted on the console that reads ‘6.75 Edition’, ‘Celebrating 60 years of the L Series V8 engine’ and ‘One of thirty hand built in Crewe by Bentley Mulliner’ completes the look.
Based on the Mulsanne Speed, the special edition is powered by the iconic 6.75-liter V8 engine that pushes out 530 PS (523 hp / 394 kW) and 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft) of torque.
Production of the Mulsanne will end this spring and all employees working on the car will be redeployed to other areas of business.
Subsequent to the demise of the Mulsanne, the Flying Spur will become the company’s new flagship car and will welcome the addition of a hybrid powertrain by 2023, like all models made by Bentley.
