Bentley Mulsanne WO Edition pays homage to founder's 1930 8 Litre

Bentley Mulsanne W.O Edition pays homage to founder’s 1930 original

Bentley will celebrate its 100th anniversary next year, and to celebrate, the company is releasing 100 special-edition Mulsannes. Each W.O. Edition comes with one as standard and inside - displayed in a little window beside your glass of Cheeky Vimto - is a bit of crankshaft from W.O. Bentley's personal vehicle.

The rich red interior design pays homage to W.O. Bentley's original 8 Litre vehicle from 1930. 100 will be built, with deliveries commencing in 2019 following the car's public debut at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in August.

There's no word yet on how much you can expect to pay for one of these limited editions, but the Mulsanne W.O. Edition can be specified on any of the three Mulsannes in Bentley's range.

Magic Leap’s mixed reality headset is coming this summer
As a reminder, here is the demo Magic Leap originally released, and which was later found to have been faked using CGI. So, what's inside the Magic Leap? It can recognize both gestures and different points of the human hand.

The interior is done up in a style that pays homage to the original 8 Litre, as well. It will feature in the rear armrest just below a pair of whisky glasses. The vehicle also comes with Onyx paintwork, although customers can select other colours from Bentley's colour pallet. There will also be Beluga leather, Burr Walnut wood veneers, and lambswool rugs. These are matched by a cocktail cabinet that features a display with the crankshaft of the founder's 8 Litre (see gallery), which was rebuilt back in 2006 when it was bought back by Bentley. A discreet W.O. Bentley signature badge will be displayed on the lower bumper, while special centenary badging will adorn the self-levelling wheel centers and door treadplates.

Next year Bentley is 100 years old. Just 100 will be made, and it's tailored inside and out with design cues from the last auto Walter Owen Bentley designed for the brand - the 1930 8-Litre.

Bentley Motors reacquired the vehicle in 2006, when it was then restored, replacing the original crankshaft.
