Celebrates the 85th anniversary of the Blue Train race
Bentley has unveiled the Mulsanne Speed Blue Train special edition, ahead of its debut at Techno Classica.
Designed to celebrate the 85th anniversary of the ‘Blue Train’ race that was won by Bentley Chairman Captain Woolf Barnato in 1930, the special features black alloy wheels and a revised grille with a square mesh pattern that echoes the original Speed Six.
The model also has a modified interior with "Blue Train 85 Years" tread plates and an "expertly crafted veneer image of the original Bentley ‘Blue Train’ Speed Six." There's also a fluting pattern on the door panels that echo the interior of Barnato’s car.
The first production model will also come with a personalized 'hamper' that features Robbe & Berking silver plated cutlery, Haviland Limoges porcelain crockery, LINLEY crystal champagne flutes and an Angora picnic rug.
According to Bentley Heritage Collection boss Richard Charlesworth, "The Blue Train is one of the most famous and celebrated cars in the world, and it perfectly embodies the racing spirit of the Bentley. Woolf Barnato was a three-time Le Mans victor, but winning the Blue Train race captured the public’s imagination, and fuelled the legend of the Bentley Boys."
Production will be limited to four units and they will be available exclusively to customers in continental Europe.
