Bentley released a glimpse into the possible future for its flagship model, the Mulsanne, with a Mulsanne Convertible Concept model. A four-seater, luxury convertible, the Mulsanne Convertible would target wealthy buyers in emerging markets.
According to the British automaker, the Mulsanne Convertible Concept draws inspiration from “high-performance power boats” and aims to be the “ultimate in contemporary design, prestige, and exclusivity.” The Mulsanne Convertible would add to Bentley’s lineup an elegant and sophisticated convertible, blending coach-built elegance with sportiness.
Unfortunately the British automaker didn’t really hint on whether or not a production Mulsanne Convertible will ever come to fruition. It’s clearly gauging interest with these renderings, and perhaps a concept car in physical form will follow sometime soon. More importantly though, Bentley did mention that open-top cars have been an important part of its heritage since 1919, so there’s a good chance the Mulsanne would be a natural fit as a convertible in its lineup.
“The modern, luxurious, high-tech Mulsanne saloon provides a perfect foundation on which to create the world’s most elegant convertible,” said Wolfgang Dürheimer, Bentley’s Chairman and Chief Executive. “The Convertible Concept will extend the appeal of the Mulsanne family, while enhancing the profile of the Bentley brand, particularly in new and emerging markets.”
