Best of British as Bentley turns 95

Posted on 15 May 2014 by The Manufacturer

Bentley Motors is marking its 95th anniversary in the UK by unveiling a limited edition release of its Mulsanne vehicle.

15 vehicles of the Mulsanne 95, manufactured at the automotive company’s Crewe facility, are to be made available to UK-based customers.

The cars will be emblazoned in the three British-inspired colours of Britannia Blue, Empire Red and Oxford White, with Bentley saying the models are a celebration of its roots.

Models of the Mulsanne, which are available now across Bentley’s 22 UK sales locations, also come with limited edition design traits which include treadplates marked with a ninety five script and union flag detail.

Bentley also says it drew on a local supplier for its wood veneers by using material from a walnut tree that fell at Fullbeck Hall in Lincolnshire during a storm in 2007.

The veneer veneer is complemented by a blue and white two-tone leather split with red contrast stitching to continue the limited edition vehicle’s British theme.
