Bentley will reveal its new Le Mans Limited Edition Mulsanne at Pebble Beach.

The car has features inspired by each of Bentley's six Le-Mans winning drivers, including diamond-quilted seat covers and door panels as well as drilled-alloy foot pedals. The car will also receive sports suspension and steering. 

Exterior finishes include new exhaust designs and new five-spoke alloy wheels.

The car joins Bentley's previous Le Mans-inspired Continentals, and continue's the firm's celebrations of the 90th anniversary of Le Mans, and the 10th anniversary of its win in the Speed 8 in 2003. As with other models in the range, the Le Mans Limited Edition Mulsanne will only be available in North America.

Bentley's Continental GT3 race car, unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, will also be on display.

The Bentley Mulsanne is a luxuriously well appointed limo with a dash of real driver appeal

Gorgeous car. But a Le Mans

Gorgeous car. But a Le Mans limited edition should have more power and less weight, not more luxury.

@pauld101, what do you mean,

@pauld101, what do you mean, Bently has no longer has any heritage. Its green isn't it...Wait until they make a Dakar version, of their forthcoming SUV.

@kcrally, you're absolutely right....

@kcrally, you're absolutely right, it is green... which, of course, since 1903 has been Great Britain's assigned auto racing colour.  Unfortunately, though, Crewe is using the wrong green. Question is, would any Crewe employee would be able to explain the significance of GWR Middle Chrome Green to Bentley and BRG?  And, probably, the answer is no...

A Dakar version?  The last time Crewe built SUVs (for the Sultan) they just went out and bought seven Range Rovers and re-skinned them (one prototype, six sold).  So this time it's going to be a Q7.  Not something I'd want to cross the Western Sahara in.  Especially not at speed...

I'd have it over a...

Rolls Royce Phantom.

Since that barrow boy who sells nothing but cheap cr*p and desperately seeks out young apprentices Rolls Royces haven't had the same attraction.

The Mulsanne, however, is quite something when you see one in the metal.   Pictures simply don't do it justice.   It simply has class.
