After more than a decade and over 7,300 units, production of the Bentley Mulsanne has come to an end.

The final example of Bentley’s flagship was completed at the company’s Crewe HQ this week.

The ultra-luxurious Mulsanne, with unique interior and exterior design, chassis, and an all- new version of Bentley’s twin-turbocharged 6.75-litre V8 engine, was unveiled at Pebble Beach in 2009.

A Mulliner version came along three years later, adding unique 21-inch alloy wheels, Bentley Flying ‘B’ wing vents, diamond-quilted leather trimmed cabin, large tilt-opening tinted glass sunroof, and an electrically operated bottle cooler.  The Mulsanne Speed was unveiled in 2015, and the version boasted a 530bhp version of the engine and a sports suspension.  The Mulsanne family was updated in 2016 with a series of interior and exterior styling revisions, while an extended wheelbase version was added for extra passenger comfort.

This year, Bentley marked the end of production with the ‘6.75 Edition by Mulliner’ version.  Limited to just 30 examples, it is also the last Bentley to feature the 6.75-litre V8 which has been produced by Bentley for over six decades.
