The assembly of the Bentley Mulsanne has been completed at the company’s factory in Crewe. It turned out to be the last, thirtieth car of the farewell Mulsanne 6.75 Edition by Mulliner. The two-color sedan with the last 6.75-liter V8 engine assembled in early June will be delivered to a buyer from the United States.

The engine began its history in 1959. Now the 61-year-old unit has been retired.

All cars of the farewell series are distinguished by unique decor, interior trim and nameplates. The Mulsanne 6.75 Edition by Mulliner features a blackened Flying B logo and radiator grille, chrome-edged headlights, and darkened 21-inch five-spoke wheels. A sign with the autograph of Bentley CEO Adrian Hallmark is attached to the sedan's engine. The traditional silver intake manifold was replaced with a black one.

The interior has special embroidery on the back of the seats and regulators in the form of oil filler caps on the front fascia. The instrument base and the clock face are decorated with a schematic image of the engine in the section. There are also nameplates with the series name «6.75 Edition» on the door sills. The same inscription is projected on the ground when the door is opened.
