JAZZED-UP special editions used to be the last resort of the mainstream car-makers desperate to shift big numbers of aging run-out models.
How things have changed.
First there was the BMW M5 30 Jahre Edition, a limited production run of the current M5 to commemorate the thirtieth anniversary of the first car to bear that badge which appeared back in 1984, and now even Bentley is getting in on the act with the Mulsanne 95, a special edition of the company’s top-of-the-range saloon celebrating 95 years of Bentley history.
The Mulsanne 95 is about as exclusive as it gets.
Just fifteen examples will be built, and they’ll only be offered to customers in the UK. There’s a choice of three distinctively “British” colours – Britannia Blue, Empire Red and Oxford White.
The cars, which will be prepared by Bentley’s Mulliner “special requests” division, will also get a unique wood veneer from a single walnut tree and other distinctive trim details – in particular a dark tint to the “flying B” bonnet badge and the wheels.
Order books for the Bentley Mulsanne 95 are now open.
