Bentley took to the 2016 Beijing Auto Show with a surprisingly strong lineup which included the latest Bentley Flying Spur V8 as well as two hot new Mulsannes. The highlights of the British auto maker’s stand were the Bentley Mulsanne First Edition and the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase.
While the latter in a China only model, Bentley Mulsanne First Edition is a globally available version celebrating the launch of the new luxury saloon with a number of exclusive options. The main features of the First include a bespoke Mulliner sterling silver vanity kit inlaid into the rear picnic table. True to its name, the kit, made by Asprey of London, includes a vanity mirror, hair brush and comb.
Other notable highlights of Bentley Mulsanne First Edition include special tread plates and Union Jack-inspired First Edition embroidery on the seats, specially engraved Bentley ‘Flying B’ bonnet ornament, and optional champagne cooler. The First Edition is limited to only 50 units.
As for the Bentley Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase, the car comes with ripple-patterned Fulbeck veneer sourced from a 350-year-old English walnut tree which makes it ultra-exclusive. There is also an additional 250mm of legroom in the back as well as airline-style reclining seats with extending footrests and a rear compartment sunroof, 4G internet, and a pair of 10.2” Android devices.
