Bentley is marking its 95th anniversary in the UK by unveiling the Mulsanne 95, a special edition of the company’s luxurious flagship model. Only 15 examples will be handcrafted by Bentley’s Mulliner division in Crewe and all are reserved for customers in the United Kingdom. Three bespoke exterior colors: Britannia Blue, Empire Red and Oxford White—created especially for this limited run of cars and then hand-finished at Bentley’s own paint shop—have been conceived for the Mulsanne 95 with each option reflecting Bentley’s British roots. The color palette is complemented by some eye-catching exterior design touches unique to Mulsanne 95, with a dark tint finish given to the iconic Flying B bonnet mascot and the striking 21-inch five-spoke wheels.
Illuminated tread plates featuring a bespoke “NINETY FIVE” script and union flag detail turn opening the door into an occasion. A distinctive “95” emblem has been embroidered onto the front and rear seats. The Mulsanne 95 features noteworthy 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 complex pattern displays a rippled effect throughout the cabin.
