Limited edition Mulsanne gets plenty of black and gold love

Bentley’s Mulliner customization division has been responsible for some pretty distinct works, none more recent than the GQ Korea Flying Spur that was designed by Korean designer Sang Yup Lee. The Korea-exclusive Flying Spur was extremely well-dressed, right down to the Magnetic of Onyx duo-tone paint finish and the garish interior modifications. Turns out, the GQ Korea Flying Spur isn’t the only Bentley that Mulliner has been working on. This one is the Mulsanne Sinjari Edition, a limited edition pièce de résistance earmarked specifically for the Middle Eastern market.

Inspired by the magnificent Sinjari falcon, the Mulsanne Sinjari is defined by significant changes to its exterior and interior, all of which were done by Mulliner’s fine craftsmen to exude the grace and majesty of its avian namesake. Considering that the Sinjari falcon is known for its black and gold feathers, Bentley’s personalization division saw fit to keep the inspiration as pure as can be, giving way to an instantly recognizable Mulsanne that’s unlike anything we’ve seen in some time.

It’s unclear how many units of the Mulsanne Sinjari Edition are in existence today, but a quick peek at Bentley’s Qatar-facing website shows that the model can be ordered in that country.

What Makes The Bentley Mulsanne Sinjari Edition by Mulliner So Special

From a distance, the Mulsanne Sinjari doesn’t really look like it fits into that “special edition” label, but once you get closer, you’ll notice a world of opulent changes that dramatically alters the look and feel of the luxury sedan. The two-tone Anthracite over Onyx paint finish is an exclusive color for the model while the set of 21-inch aluminum alloy wheels have also been dressed to extend the inspiration to the majestic falcon. But it’s the gold trim that really sets this specific Mulsanne apart from its contemporaries. The thin gold coachline running down the shoulder lines of the car give it the extra luxury feel while the “Flying B” hood ornament gets a 23.9-karat gold plating, making it the perfect embodiment of Mulliner’s description of personalized luxury.

Inside, an owner only needs to open the door to see the first of many modifications given to the luxury sedan as the illuminated treadplates don’t waste time reminding you where this exclusive Mulsanne gets inspiration from. Piano black lacquered veneer dominates the interior and the one in the dashboard also proudly boasts the heritage of the model with a gold-plated transfer overlay image of the Sinjari falcon. The iPad tables in the rear section of the cabin also come in handcrafted veneer and are likewise adorned by the same falcon image. A chrome plated transfer overlay is then added to the waist rails with “Sinjari” spelled out for everyone to see. Complementing the veneer surfaces is Mulliner’s famous diamond quilted leather trim, finished in black and white with a contrasting white ceiling. “Sinjari” is also embroidered on the front headrests, as if there needs to be even more reminders of the exclusivity of the limited edition model.

Like most of Mulliner’s works, the Mulsanne’s performance characteristics remain unchanged. That shouldn’t be too much of a problem though as the luxury sedan already packs a 6.75-liter V-8 engine that produces 505 horsepower and 752 pound-feet of torque. Those numbers are good to get the Mulsanne to 60 mph in just 5.1 seconds to go with a top speed that’s electronically limited to 184 mph. Considering the size of the sedan, all these numbers are impressive across the board.
