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.
