Farewell Bentley Mulsanne, farewell 6.75‑litre V8

It is known throughout the motoring world as the six-and-three-quarters, and for 60 years it has creamily and effortlessly powered the top echelon of British luxury cars. But now the famous V8 – world record-holder for length of continuous production – has reached the end of the road, as has the very last car ever to have it under its bonnet, the Bentley Mulsanne.

And if all that sounds like it is building up to a valedictory special edition you’d be dead right, as Bentley has announced the Mulsanne 6.75 Edition by Mulliner, a 30-cars-only finale for both Bentley’s most majestic model and that incredible engine. Both will be gone by the spring, the V8 for a future in a museum and the Mulsanne replaced in Bentley’s range by the all-new Flying Spur.
