Bentley Mulsanne Le Mans Limited Edition debuts at Pebble Beach

To celebrate a decade since its triumphant sixth Le Mans victory with the Speed 8 in 2003, and 90 years since the first running of the legendary race itself, Bentley has unveiled a limited edition Mulsanne to be sold only in America...

Just 48 Mulsanne Le Mans Editions will be built, available in six separate specifications each celebrating a different Bentley personality - all with at least one Le Mans win under their belts. So, will it be the Tim Birkin or the Guy Smith spec? We know which one we’d choose: the Glen Kidston edition, complete with Dark Sapphire paintwork and sumptuous Imperial Blue/Newmarket Tan leather.  

Features exclusive to all the Le Mans Editions include themed embroidery on all four headrests (there’s a numbered plaque, too), ‘quad-effect’ exhaust tips and 21-inch dark-tinted alloys.

In an interesting move, Bentley has decided to offer the Mulsanne LM exclusively in the United States, with the car debuting at this week’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Bentley is encouraging potential customers to register their interest in the car. With just 48 being built, we’d recommend doing this sooner rather than later.
