Bentley's 100th birthday Mulsanne has a special extra

Bentley Mulsanne W.O. Edition by Mulliner

Bentley has revealed a special, limited-run version of its Mulsanne flagship called the W.O Edition, which pays homage to the personal auto of its founder, Walter Owen Bentley. There's also a doodle of the auto in question - a Bentley 8 Litre - just so you can explain your wonderfully nerdy artefact to your fellow rear seat passenger as you construct another Jägerbomb.

The Bentley Mulsanne W.O. Edition borrows its colour scheme from the 8-litre. It featured the most powerful engine of any vehicle available in Britain at the time - a 7,983cc straight six.

The auto also comes with Onyx paintwork, although customers can select other colours from Bentley's colour pallet.

The interior features a host of luxurious materials, including Bentley's Fireglow hide, Beluga hide and blind stitching.

Bentley dropped the first photos on Thursday and confirmed the public debut will take place during the 2018 Monterey Car Week, which runs August 18-26.
