Autocrats. Plutocrats. You know the types. Absolute power, an iron fist, and maybe a little corruption here and there. Is it all in the service of wealth? Or because of it? Depends on which ‘crat you are, we suppose. But what every good power broker needs is a fitting automobile. May we suggest the Bentley Mulsanne Grand Limousine by Mulliner?
Even though the regular Mulsanne was already an excellent candidate for the supreme rulers of the world—emphasis on was, as it’s been discontinued—this Mulliner-built limo version takes things to a whole new level. Bentley’s in-house bespoke arm added 1 meter of length to the Mulsanne (a bit more than 3 feet in American units), bringing total length to 21 feet. It also literally raised the roof (by 3 inches) for more interior room in the cabin and easier ingress and egress.
The Imperial Blue and Linen interior maintains proper levels of Bentley opulence, and there is a glass partition to keep your conversations in the back away from the ears of curious drivers. The rear of the Mulsanne limousine also features seating for four with face-to-face positioning so passengers can laugh together as they trundle past the unwashed masses who make up the proletariat. In addition to the prestige of such an imposing slab of luxury, the bourgeoisie get to enjoy a little exclusivity, too.
That means that it’s basically brand new—because what leader wants to roll around in a secondhand Bentley anyway? As for the oily bits of the Mulsanne, not much has changed from the standard car. Bentley’s 6.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 makes 505 horsepower and 752 lb-ft of torque, surely enough to help make this boat move. The limo rides on massive 21-inch wheels, unique to this Mulsanne and matching the custom Silver Frost paintwork laid over the top half of the car. The bottom half is painted in a custom Moroccan Blue color, and the combination is eye-catching, to say the least.
Five of these mega-limos have recently become available for sale because Bentley Emirates has reacquired them from the former owner. And yes, it was just one person who purchased all five examples back in 2015. So if this grand-limo interests you or your inner Mussolini, give Bentley Emirates a call.
