The LifeStyle: First Edition of the Mulsanne at the Auto China 2016 Show

Making its official debut this week at the Beijing Auto Show is the new Bentley Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase First Edition, which offers an additional 250 mm of rear legroom. The Crewe, UK-based luxury brand claims the Mulsanne EWB First Edition is “the most generously proportioned pinnacle luxury limousine in the world.” Production is limited to just 50 examples.  The special series comes with a host of interior upgrades, including the tailor-made Mulliner sterling silver vanity kit inlaid into the rear picnic table.

The set was created by Asprey of London and comes with a vanity mirror, hair brush, and a comb which can be hidden in the customized picnic table made by Mulliner. There are also “First Edition” accents here and there: special tread plates, a diametric overlay on the rear seat picnic tables, and Union Jack-inspired seat embroidery. Rounding up the specialist changes, Bentley is delivering its First Edition flagship with a bespoke “Flying B” hood ornament and a champagne cooler.

Just 50 units of the Mulsanne “First Edition” will be produced, spread across the entire range: Mulsanne, Mulsanne Speed, and the ultra-luxurious Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase (EWB). Landing in China is the EWB First Edition, which also comes with a ripple-patterned Fulbeck veneer from a 350-year-old English walnut tree. This one was acquired at an auction for an “undisclosed record price” specifically with this car in mind, The rest of the First Edition units will have an Antique Ash veneer. Next to the Mulsanne in Beijing the automaker is also bringing the Flying Spur V8 S and a customized Bentayga by Mulliner with a one-off veneer set depicting the mountain scenery from where the high-end SUV got its designation.
