Video: A look at the craftsmanship behind the 2011 Bentley Mulsanne

It’s no secret that the new 2011 Bentley Mulsanne is a lot more expensive than most cars being released these days. And by a lot more, we mean a lot more. Regarded as a luxury car unlike any other, the Mulsanne was created by Bentley with an objective of infusing old-school coach-building techniques with state-of-the-art technology and build a one-of-a-kind luxury car that would be the envy of its competitors.

In this video detailing the construction of the Mulsanne’s body at the company’s production facility in Crewe, England, Bentley’s project director, Ashley Wickman explains the fundamental design for the Mulsanne project from the car’s fundamental designs based on their concepts all the way to the production of each individual panel that will eventually comprise the Mulsanne’s body. According to Wickman, the whole process of building the body of the Mulsanne takes about 170 man-hours of painstaking labor.

It goes without saying that when building a car with the stature of the Mulsanne, even the minutest of details matter, which is precisely why the Bentley Mulsanne is what it is: a super-duper luxury car that a lot of us can only dream of riding – let alone, owning.

Well, I’m not really a fan of Mulsanne and let’s just face it Bentley car are too expensive. And I bet there are a lot of better option than this.

So, I think the BMW generation RR products look so indecent compare to this Bentley. Aside from the fact that Bentley is British,it really gives a lot of comparison between the two.

You know what I would really love to see in a car factory? Safety test or specifically, crash tests. It would be really great to see them crashing and wrecking a car like the Bentley Mulsanne. That will oughta bring a huge reaction to people watching it. It’s going to be like watching a Ferrari crash an Spider to make sure that it’s going to be safe for the passengers.

so that’s why the bentley is so expensive, 170 hours is really a painstaking labor, that’s what i call a professional craftsman.
