Mulliner’s Bentley Mulsanne Grand Limousine debuted in 2015 as the pinnacle of luxury from the opulent automaker. Now five of them have gone on sale due to a strange turn of events.
Someone in the United Arab Emirates ordered five of these handcrafted machines from Bentley. The buyer has taken delivery but has never used or registered these Mulsanne Grand Limousines. The partner of the car manufacturer Bentley Emirates bought them and decided to sell the rare machines.
To be the ultimate creation of the company, Mulliner’s customization division took care of building these cars by hand. Compared to a standard Mullsanne, the Grand Limousine was 1 meter (39.37 inches) taller and has a raised roof providing 79 millimeters (3.11 inches) of additional headroom at the rear.
The rear part of the cabin has four seats, two of which face the rear so that the occupants in the rear are facing each other. Luxurious touches include a drinks cabinet, bottle cooler, crystal champagne flutes and goblets for enjoying a drink.
Mulliner installed a different HVAC system than a normal Mulsanne. It includes separate areas for adjusting the temperature for each pair of rear seats.
For more privacy, there is an electrochromic glass divider between the cockpit and the rear seats that occupants in the rear can switch between transparent and opaque with the push of a button. There is also an intercom system to communicate with the driver.
Each of the five vehicles has a different finish. One has a two-tone exterior in a mix of frosted silver and Moroccan blue with an Imperial Blue and linen interior, including burl walnut wood veneer trims. Folding wooden tables provide a place to work. Handcrafted instruments display UK time, local time and outside temperature.
Another example is Damson on Black Crystal on the outside. The cabin is a combination of Damson and Twine leathers with dark stained walnut wood trim.
There is a car that has an Onyx exterior on Candy Red. Inside, it’s Hotspur and Camel with Olive Ash trim.
One of the Bentley Mulsanne Grand Limousines is Rubino Red on Light Gazelle. The cabin is in Fireglow and Twine leather with Burr Walnut.
Finally, there is a vehicle that is Black Sapphire on the outside. The interior is Imperial Blue and Camel. The trim is dark stained walnut.
Bentley doesn’t say how much it costs to own one of these five rare cars. At least hope the new owners put them on the road.
