Mulsanne W.O. Edition by Mulliner
Created to celebrate our Centenary, the Mulsanne W.O. Edition by Mulliner pays tribute to Bentley’s founder, and even contains part of his very own car. With a production run limited to just 100 cars, it provides an opportunity to own a priceless piece of Bentley’s story. Read more about the Mulsanne W.O. Edition here.
20 years ago, the crankshaft of W.O.’s car reached the end of its natural life and had to be replaced. To commemorate Bentley’s Centenary, this defining piece of the company’s engineering heritage was carefully cut into 100 sections for display in the new Mulliner cars. With no two sections the same, every car is truly unique.
To give this invaluable section of crankshaft the spectacular setting it deserves, the veneered surface around it contains an exquisite piece of marquetry showing a finely detailed view of W.O. Bentley’s 8 Litre. Designed by Mulliner in the Art Deco style popular in 1930, 419 individual pieces of veneer are arranged by hand, including Tay, Birch, Eucalyptus and Dark Stain Burr Walnut.
