The limited-run 6.75 Edition has been created by Bentley's coachbuilding division, Mulliner, and will mark the end of the 11-year production run for the Mulsanne. The British firm's outgoing flaship model has been produced since 2009. It will also be the final machine to feature Bentley's 6.75-litre V8 engine, the longest-serving V8 in continuous production.
The 30 examples of the Mulsane 6.75 Edition, described by the firm as a “fitting send-off for a masterpiece of British automotive engineering and craftsmanship”, were due to be produced this spring. But with Bentley's Crewe factory still closed, the firm says production is now due to be completed in the summer.
With no immediate plans to replace the model, sales and marketing boss Chris Craft has confirmed the company will be "redeploying all of our manufacturing colleagues who currently work on the Mulsanne to other areas of the business". The Flying Spur will become Bentley's flagship, with confirmation of a hybrid variant arriving by 2023.
The Mulsanne 6.75 Edition is based on the existing 530bhp Mulsanne Speed, with a number of specific details inside and out referencing the engine. These include seat motifs, chrome badging for the exterior and engine bay and a 6.75 Edition Logo projected by LED puddle lights.
