Bentley celebrates 60 years of the Queen with Mulsanne Diamond Jubilee

Bentley has unveiled a special edition of its Mulsanne grand-tourer called the Diamond Jubilee in celebration of the 60 year reign of Queen Elizabeth II.

Bentley has unveiled a special edition of its Mulsanne grand-tourer called the Diamond Jubilee in celebration of the 60 year reign of Queen Elizabeth II.

Custom highlights include a burr walnut interior, gold embroidery on all four headrests, two loose cushions and two picnic tables in the rear.

The Diamond Jubilee receives the same powertrain as the Mulliner Driving Specification, meaning 377kW of power from a twin-turbocharged 6.75-litre V8. This gets the big Bentley to 100km/h from a standstill in 5.3 seconds and on to a top speed of 296km/h.

Only 60 models of the bespoke Mulsanne will be built — one for each year Her Majesty has been on the throne.
