At this week’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California’s Monterey Peninsula, Bentley will unveil the Le Mans Limited Edition Mulsanne, complementing the Continental range of Le Mans Limited Edition models which are available exclusively to North America.
“2013 is the 90th Anniversary of the first Le Mans 24 Hours race, in which Bentley was the only British marque to participate, and also the 10th Anniversary of the most recent win for the Speed 8 in 2003,” said Christophe Georges, COO of Bentley Motors America. “Pebble Beach, for us, is the ideal place to debut and display our Le Mans Limited Edition Mulsanne model and to showcase our flagship vehicle in its Limited Edition livery to a very knowledgeable audience of automotive enthusiasts and Bentley owners from around the world.”
The Le Mans Edition Mulsanne features diamond-quilted hide seat covering, diamond-quilted hide door panels, drilled alloy foot pedals, sports tuned suspension and steering, quad exhaust system and two-piece five spoke dark tint alloy wheels.
