New Mulsanne special celebrates Bentley's 95th anniversary and is now available to order as a UK-only model

Bentley is producing 15 limited-edition units of the Mulsanne to mark its 95th anniversary.

Destined for the UK only, the Mulsanne 95 special editions are available in just three colours and come with a bespoke black finish to the firm's Flying B mascot as well as the car's 21-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, Bentley has added new illuminated treadplates, while the 95 logo is embroidered onto the front and rear seats. The standard Mulsanne's wooden trim has also been replaced by wood taken from a 400-year-old Walnut tree from Lincolnshire. New blue and white leather trim also features, with contrasting red stitching.

The car keeps the standard Mulsanne's 6.75-litre V8 engine, with 505bhp and 752lb ft available. The Mulsanne can hit 62mph from rest in 5.3sec and has a top speed of 184mph.

The Mulsanne 95 models are now available to order from Bentley's dealer network, priced at £259,980.

There was a time in the not too distant past when a Bentley's veneer would be mirrored both across the car and front to rear - i.e. the pattern in the grain of the wood was repeated as a mirror image about the centreline of the car, both fore-aft and across the centre. Looking at Picture 5, it would appear that this level of master craftsmanship is now history. I'm not saying it's cheap. I'm just saying it looks as though VW is just milking it for all they can.
