This Is The Bentley Mulsanne Coupe We've Been Dreaming Of

Tuning

This is the closest we're going to get to a Bentley Brooklands successor for now.

We’ve been begging Bentley to make a coupe version of the Mulsanne limousine for years, and while previous rumors have suggested that the luxury automaker is considering a two-door variant, nothing has materialized. It’s looking increasingly unlikely too, as Bentley is instead concentrating on the new Continental GT and Bentayga SUV. To fill the void left by the two-door Bentley Brooklands being discontinued in 2011, German tuner Mcchip-DKR is building the Mulsanne coupe that Bentley won’t.

But since this obviously doesn’t have any official backing from Bentley, this ambitious project is not an easy endeavour. Initially, Mcchip-DKR scanned the chassis of the Mulsanne and used computer 3D technology to simulate how it could be adapted into a coupe. The tuner has had to completely re-engineer the Mulsanne’s roof to transform it into a two-door luxury coupe. The C-pillars had to be removed and redesigned, while the B-pillars had to be positioned further back to make room for the longer doors. Elsewhere, the rear window frame has been removed and repositioned, and the roof is now made entirely of carbon fiber.

To replace the rear doors, the tuner also had to create a new aluminium panel that slots between the B- and C-pillars, as well as a new corner window on each side. Since Mcchip-Dkr also sells performance parts, the tuner has added a stage 1 tuning kit to the Mulsanne that extracts 600 horsepower and 885 lb-ft of torque from its 6.75-liter twin-turbo V8. For now, this custom Mulsanne coupe is just a one-off project and is still far from finished since the windows are missing and the interior has been completely stripped out, but it’s probably the closest we’re going to get to a Brooklands successor.
