Created on a private order from a customer in the United Arab Emirates, these Bentley Mulsanne Grand Limousine models have never been used or registered.
Five models of Bentley’s Mulsanne Grand Limousine by Mulliner have gone on sale. Claimed as the luxury automaker’s most distinguished creation, what makes these five models unique is that they have never been registered or used. These limousines were handcrafted by the brand and shipped to the United Arab Emirates.
However, the buyer did not use or register these luxury cars.
The automaker claims that the Bentley Mulsanne Grand Limousine was designed and built entirely by hand. It comes with a 1000mm stretched body and a raised roof. The latter provides an additional 79mm of headroom at the rear of the car. One of these five models can be purchased through Bentley’s UAE retail partner, Bentley Emirates. The company will deliver anywhere in the world as required.

Dark Stained Burr Walnut. One with an Onyx over Candy Red exterior featuring a Hotspur and Camel interior finished with an Olive Ash veneer shows the automaker’s vision of luxury.
