Bentley has confirmed its Mulsanne will cost from £220,000 when it goes on sale early next year.
Production of the new luxury saloon is scheduled to start in Crewe in the second quarter of 2010, with the first deliveries set top reach customers by the summer.
A new body construction facility has been built especially for the Mulsanne. The firm is offering its flagship with a choice of 114 exterior colours, 21 carpet colours, nine wood veneers and 24 interior leather hides.
Bentely’s sales and marketing board member Stuart McCullough says the firm has already received enough interest in the car to exceed its production targets for 2010.
So far, more than 1000 potential customers have privately viewed the Mulsanne at dealerships in the UK, Europe and the US, as well as at the firm’s Crewe headquarters.
