The Bentley Mulsanne flagship has created a new exclusive series known as Hallmark that will be limited to 50 examples. It will be available across the Mulsanne range, including the Speed and Extended Wheelbase, and is available in two variants, Gold and Silver.
From the front, the Flying B mascot will be finished in either gold plating, or hewn from solid silver. A handpainted finish line in either gold or silver is brushed along the length of the bodywork. The car rides on 21" polished alloy wheels.
The interior showcases contrasting leather seats front and back, with silver or gold embroidery, and alcantara rear cushions matching the front seat. Other features include city umbrellas, illuminated numbered treadplates, silver or gold metallic hides lining the storage compartments, and a matching precious metal veneer inlay.

(Crewe, 3 March 2017) Bentley Motors is today unveiling the Mulsanne Hallmark Series by Mulliner – a highly exclusive limited edition inspired by the finest precious metals and luxury materials used by the very best jewellers.
This limited edition is available across the Mulsanne range, and is the ultimate statement of luxury from Bentley’s flagship model.
Silver and Gold versions of the fifty-model series will be made available to customers. Precious metals have long been identified by hallmarks - stamps that prove their authenticity and value. Truly rare cars can be identified by hallmarks of their own; in this case bespoke Mulliner craftsmanship.
Exquisite design details from Mulliner – Bentley’s personal commissioning division – include a hallmarked silver or carat-gold-plated ‘Flying B’ mascot, a matching fine line running the length of the body; silver or gold metallic hide lining the storage compartments, complementery painted veneer and a stunning precious metal veneer inlay.
The famous retractable ‘Flying B’ mascot is engraved with ‘Commissioned’ on one side and ‘By Mulliner’ on the other, and is hewn either from solid silver (featuring the Bentley hallmark) or finished with carat-gold plating.
Both models feature an exquisite handpainted fine line running the length of the coachwork, in either gold or silver. Duo or single-tone paint finishes are available with the Hallmark Series by Mulliner.
The imposing 21” polished alloy wheels and distinct Mulliner (or optional Serenity) grille create the ultimate statement of luxury.
Inside, the Mulsanne Hallmark Series by Mulliner features front and rear seats trimmed in contrasting hides, to create a bespoke colour split. Stunning silver or gold embroidery, stitching and piping complete the exclusive interior design.
Unique metallic silver or gold hide lines the Hidden Delights storage spaces, inspired by the tailoring for the very best Savile Row suits. The hide on the seats and door panels has the delicate Mulliner quilting pattern, while the veneer is painted to perfectly match the secondary hide colour, creating a considered and elegant interior inspired by current interior design trends.
The fascia has a silver or gold overlay with a ‘Mulliner’ inscription, and there are solid silver or gold-plated inlay strips on all door waistrails.
Alcantara rear cushions matching the secondary hide, city umbrellas, illuminated treadplates featuring model-specific numbers (e.g. ‘1 of 50’), complete the truly extraordinary interior of this new, highly limited-edition Mulsanne Hallmark Series. An optional Mulliner cocktail cabinet can also be specified.
As Bentley’s personal commissioning division, Mulliner exists to respond to individual customer requests for further bespoke features.
The experienced team, supported by the in-house engineers and designers at Crewe, prides itself on a long history of fulfilling the desires and demands of Bentley’s most discerning customers worldwide.
