Exclusive Bentley Mulsanne W.O

Bentley Mulsanne W.O Edition pays homage to founder’s 1930 original Bentley Mulsanne W.O. Edition marks British marque's 100th birthday

Bentley and Mulliner have revealed a new Mulsanne special edition, named after Bentley's founder. In particular, the vehicle pays homage to the Bentley founder's personal 1930 8 Litre. 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 auto.

The edition is available on any of the three Mulsanne versions - namely the standard one, Mulsanne Speed and Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase. Bentley dropped the first photos on Thursday and confirmed the public debut will take place during the 2018 Monterey Car Week, which runs August 18-26. W.O. was forced to sell his own Bentley 8-litre a year later in 1931. The Mulliner illuminated cocktail cabinet will feature a display window, behind which a slide of the 8 Litre's crankshaft is showcased, with an inscription detailing the significance of this piece. The interior also includes Fireglow lambswool rugs, glass tumblers, privacy curtains and rear seat entertainment.

The hero color for the auto will be Onyx black, though customers will be able to specify alternatives, and there will be further special touches such as a chrome hood strip and available chrome radiator shell and grille. A small W.O. Bentley signature is displayed on the lower bumper, and special centenary badging is found on the wheel center caps and door sills. But it's started the celebrations a tad early, with this 100-off limited edition Mulsanne saloon.

Trump says North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies have agreed to increase defence spending
Attacking allies over trade and their willingness to pay their share of military costs has played well with his political base. Trump has described the spending situation as "disproportionate and not fair to the taxpayers of the United States".

Interestingly, Bentley retains its founder's 8 Litre, the second example to be made.

W.O. Bentley was forced to sell the vehicle just a year later. The 8 Litre was the last auto W.O. Bentley designed for the company, in 1930.

Bentley Motors reacquired the auto in 2006, when it was then restored, replacing the original crankshaft.
