Bentley Mulsanne W.O. Edition celebrates the company's centenary

Bentley Mulsanne W.O Edition pays homage to founder’s 1930 original Bentley Mulsanne W.O. Edition celebrates the company's centenary

The 8-litre auto was described as W.O. Bentley's finest grand tourer and was the largest and most luxurious Bentley of its time with the most powerful engine of any vehicle available in Britain - a 7,983cc straight six that offered remarkable performance.

Bentley has revealed the limited-edition Mulsanne W.O. Edition to celebrate its 100th birthday and honour company founder, Walter Owen Bentley.

It's called the Mulsanne W.O. Edition, paying homage to company founder W.O. Bentley.

Limited to just 100 units, one for every year Bentley's been in business, the W.O. Mulsanne packs trimmings inspired by the 8 Litre from the early 1930s, the last auto designed by W.O. himself. Each W.O. Edition comes with one as standard and inside - displayed in a little window beside your glass of Cheeky Vimto - is a bit of crankshaft from W.O. Bentley's personal vehicle. Beluga Black alloy wheels feature and, although Onyx black paint is used on the pictured example, customers can spec their finish however they like via Bentley's "exclusive pallete". One of these will be a slice of the crankshaft from the engine in W.O. Bentley's actual 8 Litre.

The interior contains a range of features inspired by luxury living in the 1930s - including a Mulliner illuminated cocktail cabinet or bottle cooler. The wood dash features the founder's signature, which is also displayed on the front bumper, while there's centenary badging located on the sills and wheel centres. Dark Satin Burr Walnut veneer accents the interior, with Fireglow lambswool rugs, glass tumblers and, of course, privacy curtains.

The Mulsanne W.O. Edition will make its debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in late August and customer deliveries will begin in 2019.

The W.O. Edition by Mulliner is available on all three Mulsanne models, including the Speed.
