2011 Bentley Mulsanne to enter full production this summer

Article by Christian A., on August 30, 2010

This summer, Bentley production of the new 2011 Mulsanne will go full blast. Skills, which have been brought down through generations of Crewe car makers, will be used as Bentley's 98-member team of manufacturing specialists assemble the painted body, hand crafted leather hides and wood veneers, the 6 3/4 liter V8 engine and its electrical components.

To guarantee that the wiring harness will be installed perfectly, Bentley will also utilize new techniques, including the handling of the extremely delicate fiber optic cables and a highly-sophisticated electronic alignment system.

Throughout the build process, Bentley will conduct hundreds of exacting quality tests that will use some of the industry's most advanced software.

As soon as the Mulsanne's painted body shell enters the build hall, the specialists will position the electrical loom (which is pre-heated to make sure that the cabling is as flexible as possible).

They will also then be installing the fuel tank. Specialist teams will begin working on major sub-assemblies such as the dashboard and doors before installing.

Each car will have a unique electronic Bentley passport number so that its complete build specification is available to production operatives at the tap of a button.

This passport is surely far more sophisticated than a specification sheet able to accommodate the extensive standard and optional feature specification of the new Mulsanne. This allows the customer to choose from over 100 paint colors.
