Bentley Mulsanne Grand Convertible Enters Production

Limited Edition

But there’s a catch.

Back in 2012, Bentley unveiled the Grand Convertible Concept based on the Mulsanne at a private event during the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance before showing it to the public at the 2014 LA Auto Show. Now, Bentley has finally confirmed that it’s going into production – but there’s a catch. Bentley’s Mulliner personalization department will be building just 19 examples of the Mulsanne-based Grand Convertible as a nod to the year 1919 when Bentley was founded.

Each car will be built to the customer’s specification, so all 19 examples will be truly unique. After dropping its top, you’re presented with the GrandConvertible’s wooden tonneau rear deck made from dark-stained burr walnut,which is the largest piece of wood veneer ever used in a Bentley. Like manyelements of the cabin, it was inspired by luxury power boats. The cabin is as opulentas you would expect: the leather is made up of 14 hides in a diamond quiltingpattern. Contrast stitching matches the exterior color, and contrasting Belugaleather is applied to the tops of the doors. Prices are rumored to start at an eye-watering $3.5 million, but Bentley hasn’t confirmed this.

The Grand Convertible is reportedly based on the Mulsanne Speed which is powered by a twin-turbo 6.75-liter V8 that produces 530 horsepower and 811 lb-ft of torque. This allows the luxury sedan to accelerate from 0-62 mph in 4.8 seconds before reaching a top speed of 190 mph. But it’s likely that the Mulsanne’s conversion to a convertible will have affected its performance. Deliveries will start in 2019.
