The next year is a jubilee for Bentley - 100 years have passed since Walter Owenon Bentley founded the car company. In honor of such an event, the brand releases a limited edition of 100 Mulsanne WO Edition by Mulliner cars.

The inspiration for its creation was the personal car of the founder of the company - a 1930 Bentley 8 Liter. This car was the latest development of the famous English engineer and is considered a classic of the "golden era" of the automotive industry. “I have always dreamed of creating a car that would be very quiet even at a speed of 160 km / h, and we succeeded,” Bentley said.

Each Mulsanne WO Edition is hand-assembled by Mulliner. Inside the new models is a part of Walter's car - a particle of a Bentley 8 Liter crankshaft. It is divided between all cars of the series and is enclosed in a glass window in the armrest of the car, next to a minibar for cocktail glasses and bottle coolers, which the craftsmen made in the Art Deco style. Other features of this model include an elegant interior (four types of wood, colored leather with patina effect) and black veluga wheels.
