Bentley Motors has added a most prestigious model to its rejuvenated Heritage Collection — a bespoke 2020 Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase that was commissioned and built for Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The vehicle is the final example of the Mulsanne handcrafted at Bentley’s Dream Factory in Crewe. It has a range of bespoke features fit for royal duties, starting with an exterior finished in solid Barnato green that is paired with an interior in Twine and Cumbrian hide, Burr Walnut wood veneers and deep lambswool carpets.
Additional specifications include rear privacy curtains and the Royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom inlaid into the door waist rails. The front center armrests were removed in lieu of a custom-sized tray to accommodate the Queen’s handbag.
Bentley’s famous 6.75-liter V8 engine, 21-inch alloy wheels, and chrome grille and front wing vents, and the iconic Flying B complete the car.
The Queen’s Mulsanne will join the second Mulsanne ever built, from 2010, and a 2019 Mulsanne Speed that previously saw service on Bentley’s press fleet. The three Mulsannes are part of an expanded 45-car collection aiming to describe Bentley’s 104-year history
Other models in Bentley’s Heritage Collection ranges from the oldest Bentley in the world — the 1919 3-Litre EXP2 — to the 2021 Continental GT Speed. In between are some of the most extraordinary Bentleys ever made, representing every decade of the company’s history. There are 37 road legal cars in the collection, along with eight of the most famous motorsport and record-breaking Bentleys, like three Speed 8s, both generations of Continental GT3, and Pikes Peak and Ice Speed Record cars
All of the cars in the Heritage Collection are maintained and displayed at Bentley’s carbon neutral Dream Factory.
