Unveiled at Pebble Beach Concourse in 2009, the Bentley Mulsanne was named after the Mulsanne Corner at Le Man’s race circuit and represented the ultimate in luxury limousine comfort and performance. Hand-built in Crewe from the most luxurious materials, the Mulsanne carried the lineage of the Bentley Arnage.
The Mulsanne, with its understated elegance, represented the pinnacle of Bentley craftsmanship and contemporary design. In the decade that they were in production, between 2010 and 2020, just over 7,300 units of the Mulsanne were built.
The standard Mulsanne was in every mean of the word, A Flagship. Weighing in at 2650kg, it required the ultimate in powerplants. Powered by the now-iconic twin-turbocharged 6.75-litre V8 engine., the Mulsanne gracefully wafts along like a cloud, but can achieve 0-100 km/ph in 5.1 seconds, and has a top speed of 296 km/ph.
Handcrafted Classic Luxury
The Bentley S1 (originally the “Bentley S”) was a luxury car produced by Bentley Motors Limited from 1955 until 1959. During this time only 3538 were ever made, it’s hard to know how many still remain on the roads today.
It has a timeless art deco look to it, perfect for any wedding. It would have been old fashioned by the time this car was built in 1955, but at the time, trendiness was much more important for things like sports cars than for luxury cars. The art deco look is repeated on the interior, particularly in the wood inlaid dash.
The standard S1 weighing in at 4,242 pounds, and this aluminum-bodied version presumably weighing a bit less, it’s at the very least 1,000 pounds lighter than any of Bentley’s current models.
The S1 has a 4.9-liter inline-six engine that ideal so smoothly you barely know its running. It has a four-speed automatic transmission and produces about 178 horsepower, which was a lot for its day.
