2016 Geneva Motor Show – Bentley Mulsanne Grand Limousine By Mulliner
The new Bentley Mulsanne Grand Limousine is Mulliner’s division of bragging about what they can do. Showcased at the Geneva Motor Show, the company’s bespoke limousine is really a testament to the team’s skills. The modified Mulsanne is an extra meter long and 79 mm taller than the original, boasting a unique rear cabin with four opposing seats.
The British limo was designed for a private customer and is Bentley’s first car to feature electrochromic glass, which means passengers are able to switch the interior division and rear-cabin window glass between clear and opaque, once the proper button is pushed. The exquisite craftsmanship of the coachbuilder was indeed necessary to transform the customer’s vision into the real deal. The attention to detail and quality is, as per usual, incredible.
One feature worth mentioning is definitely the presence of handcrafted wooden roof panel, encasing three dials displaying UK and local time, as well as exterior temperature. There’s also a new climate control system, developed especially for the new Mulsanne Limousine, while other features including iPad charging and docking stations, veneered fold-out tables, a bottle cooler with frosted glass and crystal flutes, and a soft drink cabinet with bespoke tumblers are also part of this highly customized vehicle.
You realize, of course, that Bentley had to review the chassis, suspension, powertrain and transmission for the Grand Limousine to be able to deliver the proper experience. The finishing touch represents that wonderful two-tone Silver Frost and Moroccan Blue, complemented a set of unique 21-inch alloys, color-matching to the limousine’s paint job.
