Bentley Just Named Another One Of Its Special Editions After A Whale

Special Edition

Whales aren't known for being fast...are they?

Bentley’s current lineup looks like it’d be as at home in the harbor as on the road. Translation: Its cars are as big as tuna boats. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but why call attention to it? Last year the automaker did just that by creating the “Beluga Specification” for the Flying Spur. For 2016 the Mulsanne Speed is getting the Beluga treatment. Like the Flying Spur before it, the changes here are cosmetic, meaning the car’s beastly 6.75-liter twin-turbo engine good for 530 horsepower and 811 lb-ft of torque has been left untouched.

The Mulsanne Speed Beluga Special Edition is completely blacked out. Hell, even the hood ornament—with “Beluga Edition By Mulliner” engraved on it—has been darkened. The speedy four-door sits on 21-inch alloy wheels. Inside, well it’s a Bentley. Mulliner didn’t go too nutty here, although the sill plates do say “Beluga Edition.” Pricing and availability were not revealed but rest assured this whale of a special edition won’t be cheap. Here’s hoping Bentley decides to go all-in on this silly naming scheme and give the Bentayga and the (hopefully upcoming) EXP 10 Speed 6 the Beluga treatment. Whales for everyone!
