Even more exclusive Bentayga by Mulliner also shown
Bentley has unveiled an even more exclusive version of the Mulsanne at the 2016 Beijing auto show, the Mulsanne First Edition. Only 50 examples of the Mulsanne First Edition will be made, available in all three versions of the car, including the standard Mulsanne, the extended-wheelbase Mulsanne and the Mulsanne Speed.
Unique touches on the Mulsanne First Edition include an optional bespoke Mulliner sterling silver vanity kit inlaid into the rear picnic table created by Asprey of London, a unique diametric overlay on the rear picnic tables, special tread plates, Union Jack-inspired First Edition embroidery on the seats, an engraved “Flying B” hood ornament, and an optional champagne cooler. The particular example shown at the 2016 Beijing auto show is an extended-wheelbase variant with a unique Fullbeck veneer sourced from a 350-year old English walnut tree, which the automaker acquired for an undisclosed price and used for a small number of cars.
In addition to the Muslanne First Edition, Bentley also revealed the Bentayga by Mulliner. Bentley’s bespoke coach building division built a unique SUV with an exclusive set of veneers that depict the mountain scenery that inspired the Bentayga’s name. The scene is composed using 30 individual pieces made from 10 different veneers that were crafted and shaped to create a highly detailed mountain scape picture.
