Dubai, United Arab Emirates -  21, August 2019:   Mulliner, the bespoke coachbuilding division of Bentley Motors, has handcrafted 100 unique key cases to commemorate the handover of each Mulsanne W.O. Edition by Mulliner. This special limited edition Mulsanne pays homage to the founding father of the company and includes a slice of crankshaft from W.O.'s personal car.
 
Inside the key case, there is a range of memorabilia to mark the extraordinary milestone in the history of the luxury automotive brand, including a bespoke 1:18 model of W.O.'s personal 8 Litre. 
 
Accompanying this special souvenir, a flying ‘B' paperweight, displayed adjacent to a set of three keys, and a printed brochure with never-seen-before imagery of the 1930 8 Litre. The finishing touch to this commemorative gift is added with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Bentley Chairman and CEO, Adrian Hallmark, and director of Design and Mulliner, Stefan Sielaff.
 
Built to pay homage to Bentley's founding father, the limited edition model is inspired by the famous 1930 8 Litre – the last model W.O. designed for Bentley Motors – with the key case featuring many of the same design elements.  
 
Separated by a chrome pinstripe, the case is handcrafted using the same Dark Stained Burr Walnut and Piano Black veneer, perfectly complemented by a Fireglow Heritage hide pull tab that matches the red interior of the Mulsanne W.O. Edition.         
 
The polished exterior is engraved with the years 1919-2019, to mark this extraordinary centenary, and an elegantly illustrated silhouette of a Bentley Mulsanne. The delegate addition of W.O.'s personal signature pays a fitting tribute to the innovative founder.
 
Mulsanne W.O. Edition by Mulliner – A Truly Unique Car
Bentley Motors is demonstrating the beauty of bespoke with a new, limited edition Mulsanne.
 
The Mulsanne W.O. Edition by Mulliner pays homage to the founding father of the company and incorporates a genuine piece of Bentley history inside every car. A slice of crankshaft taken from W.O. Bentley's personal 8 Litre model is beautifully displayed inside each of these 100 very special Mulsannes.
 
Designed to mark Bentley's centenary milestone this year, the W.O. Edition can be specified on any of the three-model Mulsanne range.
 
Key features on every W.O. Edition include a colour split interior cut from Heritage Hide, elegant body-coloured wheels and a handcrafted cocktail cabinet in the rear, featuring the unique slice of crankshaft set into the armrest.
 
Mulliner – Rare by Design
Mulliner exists to respond to the requirements of Bentley's most discerning customers. Any type of personalisation can be undertaken to create a unique Bentley of individual taste.
 
Mulliner's roots date back to the 1500's – the firm's original focus was creating luxurious horse-drawn carriages. In 1923 Mulliner showcased work on a Bentley chassis for the first time, exhibiting a two-seater 3 Litre Bentley at the Olympia Show in London – just four years after Bentley Motors was founded.
 
In 1953, Mulliner coachbuilt one of the most iconic Bentleys ever – the R Type Continental. This model inspired the design of today's Continental GT. In 1957, Mulliner introduced the Continental Flying Spur, a special four-door saloon built on the Bentley Continental chassis. Mulliner officially became part of Bentley Motors in 1959, setting up its workshops in Crewe.
 
Bentley's Centenary – 100 Years of Extraordinary
In 1919 Walter Owen (W.O.) Bentley created a company with a simple objective: to build “a fast car, a good car, the best in its class”. This guiding principle has driven Bentley ever since, pushing the brand forward and making it the leader in automotive luxury around the world today.
