Bentley Motors recently unveiled a new Limited Edition luxury automobile exclusively for its European customers. With just only 22 cars produced, the “Birkin Mulsanne” features numerous unique styling details and represents the finest in British luxury motoring. Inspired by the legendary “Bentley Boy”, Sir Henry Stanley “Tim Birkin”, the Birkin Mulsanne specifications are based on the idea of how Birkin, ihe were alive today, would commission a Bentley. With its effortless performance and luxurious hand-crafted cabin, the Bentley Mulsanne pays homage to the legend who epitomized the mystic and air of the British gentleman racer: Numbered door sill plaques, 21″ wheels, a 3D ‘Flying B’ logo stitched into the vehicle headrests and inlaid into the wood of the front fascia and rear picnic tables and individually numbered and hand-crafted luggage sets which match the interior of each car.
Control system, an intricate diamond quilting pattern to the seats and door panels, indented leather headlining and details to the interior metalwork. The rear of the Birkin Mulsanne is both luxurious and comfortable space, featuring twin 8″ LCD screens in the rear of the seat headrests, a DVD player, a Wi-Fi hotspot, a top of the line audio system and iPads integrated into the hand-crafted solid wood
picnic tables. These luxurious vehicles are available in three distinct colors specifications: contemporary Ghost White, vibrant Damson, and in the spirit of the classic two-tone Bentley, a sophisticated and modern contrast of Fountain Blue and Dark Sapphire.
Tim Birkin traveled and raced throughout Europe in the 1920s and 1930s. He had a love of motoring and a love for Bentleys both on the road and on the race track and was known for his aggressive racing style. In 1928, Birkin persuaded Bentley Motors owner Woolf Barnato and financial-backer Dorothy Paget to support a production run of 50 cars in order to qualify for Le Mans. Bentley developed the “Blower” supercharger which increased the power of the 130 bhp Bentley 4 ½ litre, to an impressive 242 bhp.
So although Sir Birkin has left the race course of life, the legend and spirit of the Bentley Boy
