$3.5 million Bentley Grand Convertible by Mulliner makes its debut in Dubai

Dubai is one of the few countries where expensive cars are the norm, many of which are specially modified as well. And this just in: Bentley has debuted the new Grand Convertible by Mulliner in Dubai without much fanfare. The said model is housed in Bentley’s largest showroom, and it currently sits beside other members of the family like the Mulsanne, one standard version with another one having the extended wheelbase. Crewe’s latest project may sound familiar to others, and this is because it has already made its debut in November 2014 at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

But don’t get me wrong, the one from 2014 was a concept, which was based on the Mulsanne version, minus the roof. On the other hand, the two-tone example that’s sitting in Dubai right now is a production model that started out in life as a Mulsanne Speed before losing its roof, which was also shortened by a few centimeters - 10cm (3.9 inches) to be exact. Its body has been finished with a predominant Moroccan Blue paint, contrasted with a Frosted Silver finish up front, on the hood. This surrounds the imposing grille as well as the windscreen frame.

But that’s not what the production model boasts of. Apart from the stylish body, it has a large piece of wood applied onto the rear deck like that of the concept we saw in 2014. Shmee says that this must be the largest piece of wood that has been installed on a car ever, and this particular one even comes with metallic fins.

Bidding starts at $13,100 for impaled 2011 Bentley Mulsanne

What is the worst thing that could happen to your car? Well, probably if it gets burned down into ashes, because that’s equivalent to throwing away a huge amount of money, as nothing will be left of it. The next worst thing is probably having a huge piece of metal stab through your car just like that in scenes of a Final Destination movie.

My next question is, are you thinking of getting yourself a Bentley Mulsanne? Well, if you are, there is actually a 2011 model that is currently up for grabs. But it is unlike any other Mulsanne that you have seen out there, because it comes with a special accessory.

We actually don’t want to imagine what happened to this particular car and if there were any casualties. But it seems like it had hit the guardrail, real hard.

Mansory gives the 2017 Bentley Mulsanne an array of impressive power and style upgrades

Bentley Mulsanne is Mansory's latest project to date, and it looks much more stylish compared to some of the last ones they have tuned.

The ultra luxurious Mulsanne has been given just the right amount of facelift with additional carbon fiber details from the front bumper lip spoiler, and fog lamps surround. More carbon has been added in the form of side skirts, boot lid spoiler, and rear bumper diffuser.

What completes the new look of the limo would be the huge set of 22-inch forged wheels hugged by 285/35Z ultra-high performance tires on the front and rear axles. The hot wheels were of course, recommended by Mansory.

Blacked-out Bamford X Bentley Mulsanne Speed is truly impressive

Having a blacked-out Bentley Mulsanne Speed is already menacing by itself but by naming it as the Bamford X, it became all the more imposing. This model was made by the brand’s very own bespoke department Mulliner, and was developed specifically for JCB heir and watch customizer George Bamford.

In terms of dimensions alone, the Bamford X is showing that it is not something you play around with. Overall length stands at 5,575 mm (219.5 in.) with total width of 1,926 mm (75.8 in.) and height at 1,521 mm (59.9 in.).

Looking at the exterior, the Bamford X follows a black-on-black theme, which is the signature of many of the Bamford Watch Department’s customized timepieces. For the bodywork, the brand made sure to give it that Beluga black finish. Much like the color scheme, this color is similar to what Bamford gets during the different processes like Graphite Particle Coating and Military Grade Titanium Coating.

The English Royal Fleet is composed of two Bentleys, three Rolls-Royces and three Daimlers plus a few Volkswagen “people carriers”. It’s no wonder why luxury car manufacturers Bentley and Rolls-Royce are given the bragging rights and claim that they can make any of its owners feel like one of England’s royalties. Equipped to be safe and efficient and painted in Royal claret livery, these cars are used for the royal family’s public engagements and some ceremonial functions.

The Royal fleet actually has two recent Bentley State Cars. The first of the two was given during the Queen’s Golden Jubilee in 2002. These cars were uniquely designed to have a monocoque construction to be able to maximize the vehicle’s interior space. Compared to the usual Bentley, the Royal Bentleys are nearly a meter longer (at least 6.22 meters long). It is also designed with rear doors that are hinged at the back so that The Queen can stand up straight before heading out.

And for full visibility of the royal family, the Bentleys are designed with a removable exterior roof covering. However, just recently, it has been reported that Her Royal Majesty is getting rid of one of her Bentleys – the newest one in the fleet, the Bentley Mulsanne.

To match its augmented dimensions, the Mulsanne Grand Limousine by Mulliner comes with a fully engineered powertrain and transmission as well as a re-engineered chassis and suspension.

All Bentley vehicles are special, and Mulliner could even make them more extraordinary as it works to fulfill the requirements of the marque’s most discerning customers.

Bentley Motors recently announced the full details of the new Mulsanne, the brand’s most exclusive car which represents Bentley’s pinnacle in car luxury. The company did not hold back in the creation of the Mulsanne, its flagship.

From its creation in Crewe, England, the Mulsanne is painstakingly handcrafted by the most skilled artisans, eventually creating a masterpiece – a testament to Bentley’s heritage. This would be the first time for the Mulsanne to be available in three models: the Mulsanne, Mulsanne Speed and Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase.

All three luxury cars are treated with the same level of unsurpassed craftsmanship and attention to detail that is a trademark of Bentley. However, each has unique abilities and attributes and is geared for a specific set of customer needs. For example, what sets the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase apart is its lavish attention for the rear-seat occupant.

To commemorate the Bentley Speed Six’s conquest of the “Blue Train” in 1930, Bentley Motors is releasing a Mulliner Limited Edition -- the Mulsanne Speed ‘Blue Train.’ This limited edition will have its debut at the Techno-Classica show in Essen, Germany.
According to Richard Charlesworth, Head of the Bentley Heritage Collection, the Blue Train, as one of the most famous and celebrated cars in the world, “perfectly embodies” the Bentleys’ racing spirit. The 1930 Blue Train race was won by three-time Le Mans conqueror Woolf Barnato, thereby capturing the public’s imagination and sparking the legend of the Bentley Boys.

He etched the Speed Six into automotive history by whacking the Calais-Mediterranée Express. Bentley’s bespoke coach building division, Mulliner, is hand-crafting just four examples of the Mulsanne Speed ‘Blue Train’ – making the commemoration much more special.

Each of the four examples of the ‘Blue Train’ Limited Edition features historical references as well as modern interpretations of design details from the original Speed Six – just like the fluting pattern in the door panels and the rear quarter inserts.

Bentley Grand Convertible is considered as one of the ultimate expressions of British automotive luxury. Regarded as Bentley’s most sophisticated open-top car so far, the Grand Convertible features an iconic yet understated styling. Handcrafted by skillful craftsmen employing the very finest materials, the Bentley Grand Convertible offers the finest in powerful, luxurious, roofless motoring.

Wolfgang Durheimer, chairman and chief executive at Bentley, remarked that the Grand Convertible shows the carmaker’s ability to create a premier convertible Grand Tourer that embodies pure elegance. He quipped that the new Grand Convertible combines the sensory pleasure of open-air driving and the opulent Mulsanne experience, while fusing luxury with performance. Bentley is waiting for customer response to the new Grand Convertible, while ensuring that this concept – once it becomes a production model -- will be a very exclusive, extremely limited collector's item.

Wrapped in Sequin Blue – a color inspired by a single sequin from a customer's haute couture gown -- the new Bentley Grand Convertible has a silver "liquid metal" finish to its windscreen frame and bonnet. Its rich blue body work is contrasted by the Bentley directional wheel design and is hand- finished and given a glossy polish.

Bentley brought the most powerful version of its flagship sedan, the Mulsanne Speed at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. The new vehicle arrived powered by the 6.75-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that generates 537 hp (395 kW) and 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft) of torque. For those who don’t know, the 2015 Mulsanne Speed hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds), while top speed is 190 mph or 305 km/h.

Thanks to the recalibrated gearbox optimized for the higher wave of torque, the new Mulsanne Speed shows improved fuel efficiency and according to Bentley its range is extended by 50 miles or 80 km.

In addition, the gearbox offers a new ‘S’ mode, which gives the driver more control and maintains engine speed above 2,000 rpm. Meanwhile, CO2 emissions dropped 13 percent to 342 g/km.

We first talked about the 2015 Bentley Mulsanne Speed back in July but today, the British manufacturer unveiled its new flagship and announced that we will see it next month at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. The new model uses the 6.75-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 537 hp (395 kW) and 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft) of torque.

As a result, it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds (0-60 mph) in 4.8 seconds, while top speed is 190 mph or 305 km/h. Despite the impressive performances, the new Mulsanne Speed shows also improved efficiency which translates into a range extended by 50 miles or 80 km/h. The model is more fuel efficient thanks to a recalibrated gearbox that was optimized for the higher wave of torque.

The gearbox offers a new ‘S’ mode that gives the driver more control and maintains engine speed above 2,000 rpm. CO2 emissions also dropped by 13 percent to 342 g/km. Due to the power increase, a more driver-focused Sport suspension mode is included, while the Bentley and Comfort suspension models offer a comfort-focused and fully compliant chassis setup.

Back in 2012, Bentley released the first sketches with the Mulsanne Convertible, but in September 2013 company’s CEO Wolfgang Schreiber told the reporters that they will not produce such a vehicle due to the lack of demand. Now, Bentley has a new CEO, Wolfgang Duerheimer, and the Mulsanne Convertible is back on track.

The convertible version of the Bentley Mulsanne was in fact a project started by Wolfgang Duerheimer but after his departure from Bentley in 2012, Schreiber killed the project. Now that Duerheimer is back he was a bit irritated when he found out that now work has been done on the project but said last weekend at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance that the engineers are working again on the convertible.

The Mulsanne Convertible will be a successor to the iconic Bentley Azure. We expect the open top version of the Mulsanne to use the same engine as the sedan, which means it will be powered by the 6.75-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 505 bhp (377 kW) at 4,200 rpm and staggering 1,020 Nm (752 lb-ft) of torque.

Earlier this month we told you that Bentley will unveil a high-performance version of the Mulsanne in October, at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. Same sources confirmed today that the high-performance version of the flagship sedan will get the Speed badge, just like Continental GT models.

The upcoming Bentley Mulsanne Speed will keep its 6.75-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that will be boosted from 505 bhp to 550 bhp.

As a result, the new vehicle will be capable to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in under 5 seconds, while top speed will be around 200 mph or 320 km/h. Due to the power increase, Bentley will update the steering and chassis.

It appears that Bentley’s halo model will receive a high-performance version and this new version could make its debut at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, Bentley boss Wolfgang Durheimer said to Auto Express that we will see Mulsanne developments at motor shows in 2014.

The current Bentley Mulsanne is powered by a 6.75-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that generates 505 bhp and 752 lb-ft of torque, bolted to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

In order to celebrate its 95th anniversary in the UK, Bentley unveiled the ‘Mulsanne 95’, a special edition of its flagship sedan. If we already caught your attention, you have to know that Bentley will only build 15 examples of this special edition, each hand crafted by Bentley’s Mulliner division in Crewe and reserved only for customers in the United Kingdom.

As you can see from the photos, Bentley will offer three bespoke colours: Britannia Blue, Empire Red and Oxford White.

When we thought we’ve seen all the cars and will not be surprised, Bentley unveiled today the Mulsanne Hybrid Concept, its first plug-in hybrid model. What’s more interesting is that the new Hybrid Concept also previews a dedicated version of the al-new SUV available in 2017. How about that, a hybrid SUV from Bentley.

Set to make its workd debut at the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition on Sunday 20thApril, the new Bentley Hybrid Concept leads the way in bringing new powertrain choice to the luxury automotive sector. Bentley didn’t give us any details regarding the powertrain, but we can see from the images that the vehicle uses the same 6752cc twin-turbocharged V8 engine that delivers 505 bhp on the standard Mulsanne.

However, using an electric motor that generates 126 bhp, the total output of the hybrid system is expected to be around 631 bhp. Despite the power increase, CO2 emissions are reduced by up to 70 percent, without any compromise to the exquisite luxury, timeless design and industry-leading refinement for which Bentley has become renowned.

Due to the lack of demand, the Bentley Mulsanne convertible concept privately displayed at last year’s Pebble Beach concours won’t be produced, Bentley CEO Wolfgang Schreiber told Car and Driver at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Initially, Bentley had wanted to push forward with the model. Schreiber now confirms that this car won’t be built as there’s only a regional demand for it.

He explained that while it’s likely that the Mulsanne convertible will succeed in the U.S. and in some areas in Europe, he doesn’t think that it will make a good business case as the demand won’t be enough. In 2012, Bentley sold 1,169 Mulsannes.

That’s why it won’t make sense to spend a lot of money for its engineering and sell just a couple hundred units annually. Bentley currently has a project to develop the upcoming SUV and as this entails a huge amount of funding, it’s not possible to finance another project. The SUV is expected to attract more sales than a convertible Mulsanne so it was an easy choice.

For those who don’t know, this year’s the Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race celebrates its 90th anniversary and in order to mark this event, Bentley has just announced two new limited editions based on the Mulsanne and Continental models. Available only in the United States, each model is inspired by a driver from Bentley’s six victories at the legendary Le Mans 24 Hours race.

Bentley won the first Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race in 1924, while from 1927 to 1930 it dominated the event and took victory on four consecutive occasions. Another victory was achieved in 2003, when Bentley took the first and second victory with Guy Smith piloting the first of the two Speed 8’s across the finish line.

In order to celebrate its victories, Bentley will build 48 examples of each ‘Le Mans Limited Edition’ model and as expected, each will have a unique Le Mans Edition numbered badge, Le Mans Edition clock face, embroidered Le Mans badge to each headrest, tread plates with the limited edition name, unique Le Mans Edition wheels and specific interior veneers and exterior colours.

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.
