Bentley is celebrating its 95th anniversary in style with a special edition Mulsanne.

The British automaker has unveiled the Mulsanne 95, a special edition model that will be reserved for customers in the U.K. Only 15 of the Bentley Mulsanne 95 will be built, each by the company’s Mulliner division in Crewe. They will be offered in three bespoke colors: Britannia Blue, Empire Red and Oxford White. Unique exterior touches on the Mulsanne 95 include a dark tint finish on the iconic Flying B hood mascot and 21-inch five-spoke wheels.

Inside, illuminated treadplates featuring a bespoke “Ninety Five” script along with the union flag complement a distinctive 95 emblem that has been embroidered onto the front and rear seats in addition to being featured on the passenger fascia panel. Another unique feature is the rare wood veneer selected by Bentley from a huge walnut tree estimated to be between 300 and 400 years old. The signature “ring of wood” from the Fulbeck Walnut veneer encompasses the entire interior.

    Bentley , it’s a great blunder to use some 400 year old tree for trim. For tree like this age, it is more preservation than using it for obonociously marketing bragging. Bentley, you are utterly senseless and damn stupid .
