2015 Bentley Mulsanne Grand Limousines by Mulliner Go Back On Sale
There’s one last version of the Bentley Mulsanne you can get but it’s not new or cheap.
The Bentley Mulsanne was recently replaced by the 3rd generation Bentley Flying Spur. Bentley made the decision to completely give up on the labour-intensive, coachbuilt Mulsanne in favour of an upsized, full-sized sedan as their flagship (in contrast with Rolls Royce, who developed an all-new Phantom).
However, you might be a multi-billionaire with a penchant for large, luxurious Bentleys looking to scratch an itch. And if that’s the case, you may be in luck.
Back in 2015, Mulliner – Bentley’s bespoke coachbuilding arm – was commissioned to hand-build FIVE very special Bentley Mulsanne Grand Limousines. These were all shipped to the United Arab Emirates, but they were never used nor registered… And now they’re back up on sale! Bentley says they’ll ship it anywhere in the world too.
About the Bentley Mulsanne Grand Limousines
Besides being completely hand-built, there were some other major changes to these cars.
They all had extended wheelbases, and not by a small margin. These ‘Grand’ Limousines were all stretched by 1 metre, lengthwise! Not just that, but they also increased headroom in the rear by 79mm for ultimate passenger comfort.
Despite being stretched, the Mulsanne Grand Limousine’s proportions are still preserved beautifully.
On the hood, the Flying ‘B’ hood ornament is finished in stainless steel and its plinth is engraved with the words: ‘Coachbuilt by Mulliner’.
Each one of these 5 Bentley Mulsanne Grand Limousines has its own unique finish:
- Silver Frost over Moroccan Blue exterior paint, paired with an Imperial Blue and Linen interior completed by Burr Walnut veneer
- Damson over Black Crystal paintwork, complemented by Damson and Twine leathers and Dark Stained Burr Walnut veneer
- Onyx over Candy Red exterior, with a Hotspur and Camel interior finished with Olive Ash veneer
- Rubino Red over Light Gazelle bodywork, with an interior in Fireglow and Twine leather paired with Burr Walnut veneer
- A single tone Black Sapphire exterior, with an Imperial Blue and Camel interior contrasted by Dark Stained Burr Walnut veneer
Step inside and you’ll find the car was designed to have 4 passengers in the rear. Two of the seats are rear-facing, allowing for a train coach experience with business class appointments.
A bottle cooler sits between the rear most seats and a beverage cabinet with bespoke crystal tumblers sits between the rear-facing seats. Each of the seats comes with folding picnic tables to allow for work to be done on the move. These tables come with iPad docking and charging stations, as well as wooden veneer finishing.
Handmade dials display UK time, local time and exterior temperature.
Individual Climate Zones
A custom heating, ventilation and air conditioning system had to be designed for this vehicle. It allows each of the four passengers in the rear their own micro-climate adjustments.
The driver is separated from the passengers with an electrochromic ‘smart glass’ that turns opaque at the touch of a button. There’s also an intercom for communication.
Turbo V8 Power
The legacy 6¾ litre twin-turbocharged V8 powers this behemoth, sending 512PS and 1020Nm of torque to its unique colour-matched 21″ wheels.
