Bentley: Good Bye Mulsanne!

Bentley is to stop production of the Mulsanne. 

A flagship of the British car industry is to step down. After 10 years in its current version and 40 years in the history of the make, taking into account its first generation launched in 1980, the Bentley Mulsanne will disappear from the catalogue this Spring. The standard-bearer of the make and a unique interpretation of the luxury car of which only the British hold the secret, the Mulsanne will not be replaced, at least in the immediate future. The new Flying Spur, which is to be fitted with hybrid propulsion from 2023, is to take over the role of flagship.

Along with the Mulsanne, we must also bid farewell to its engine, the V8 6.75-litre Rolls-Royce-Bentley L-Series, in service since 1959. It too is a legend: in six decades, it has been upgraded umpteen times. In its latest incarnation, it develops 537 hp and 1100 Nm in the Mulsanne Speed, to shift this 5.58m-long 2.7 tonne cruise liner from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds.

In order to fittingly celebrate this double retirement, Bentley is to create a special, and final, edition of the Mulsanne, the “6.75 Edition by Mulliner”. This last version will be based on the technical specifications of the Mulsanne Speed. Only 30 cars will leave the factory at Crewe from now until the end of production next Spring.
