The special edition model celebrates not only the end of the Mulsanne range, but also the 6.75-litre V8 engine.

The Bentley Muslanne 6.75 Edition marks the end of production of the company's flagship sedan, and with it the 6.75-litre V8 motor which has been in continuous production, albeit with significant updates and upgrades, for 60 years.

Only 30 6.75 Edition cars will be made by Bentley's Mulliner customisation department, each powered by the 395kW/1100Nm version of the V8 engine used in the Mulsanne Speed.

Schematic cutaway drawings of the soon-to-be-discontinued V8 engine are used for the faces of the clock and minor gauges. A scaled down representation of the engine oil cap replaces the regular "organ stop" air vent controls.

There are 6.75 Edition logos present on the headrests, engine bay, exterior and puddle lights.

Dark-tinted chrome is used for the grille, Flying B bonnet ornament, exhaust tips, windows and lower body trim. The 6.75 Edition rides on 21-inch machined alloy wheels with gloss black sections.

Black is also used for the engine intake manifold, while the engine number plaque is signed by Bentley's CEO Adrian Hallmark.

Buyers can choose from one of four leather colours (Imperial Blue, Beluga, Fireglow or Newmarket Tan). Silver accents are present throughout the cabin, including the contrast stitching and piping, as well as the painted veneer for the centre console.

Once production of the Mulsanne ends during the second quarter of this year, the recently renewed Flying Spur sedan will carry on as the company's sole, and therefore also flagship, sedan model.
