Bentley Mulsanne Convertible will cost more than than £275,000

If the Bentley Mulsanne Convertible is approved for production later this year, it will be priced at higher than £275,000. Bentley’s outgoing chief Wolfgang Dürheimer referred to this model as “a pinnacle car” for Bentley. However, sources say that even if it gets the go signal right now, it will take almost two years before it begins production, says Autocar.

At the recent Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, a mock-up of the cabrio was shown to determine how customers thought about its interior and exterior finishes and new materials as part of the ongoing development process. It’s possible that its interior will be made more distinct from that of the Mulsanne saloon. Sources said that the cabrio will utilize the saloon’s one-of-a-kind platform, with a wheelbase decreased by around 150mm.

It will still be long between the wheels at 3.1m, permitting a spacious rear cabin. The windscreen of the convertible will also be marginally lower. However, it’s believed to have the same front-end styling as the saloon and will be unique from the A-pillars rearwards.

It has engineered long new frameless doors and a fabric roof. Its rear wings feature a styling flourish reminiscent of the 1950s Bentley R Type. Even if the Mulsanne’s classic twin-turbo 6.75-litre V8 engine will originally be the core powerplant, a new V12 will be available as an option for both the cabrio and saloon.
