End of an era for the Bentley Mulsanne

Bentley Mulsanne milestone

After more than a decade in production, the final example of the Bentley Mulsanne has been completed.

More than 7,300 Mulsanne luxury saloons – all handcrafted at Bentley’s home in Crewe, Cheshire – have left the production line.

The Mulsanne’s lineage can be traced back through Bentley’s history, from the original 8 Litre of 1930 – the last car designed and developed by W.O. Bentley himself – as the most luxurious, coach built Bentley of its time.

In the last 11 years, more than 700 people have invested nearly three million hours crafting the Mulsanne.

Producing the Mulsanne bodies required approximately 42 million spot welds, creating the sumptuous leather interiors took more than a million hours alone and nearly 90,000 hours have been spent polishing cars.
