The Middle East has always been a watering hole for premium and boutique manufacturers selling their wares, with a raft of special and limited editions built exclusively for the oil-bearing region. The Bentley Mulsanne Majestic edition adds to that list. Not surprisingly, the Crewe based brand’s flagship saloon has been the most successful in the Middle East, and as a testimony to that, the Majestic edition was born. Only 15 units will be built, five of which will go to Qatar, where the Mulsanne Majestic was launched at the Al Wajba Motors dealership in Doha alongside the Continental GT3-R. Another five units are reserved for Saudi Arabia, with the remaining five to go to the United Arab Emirates.
Inspired by royalty, each of the bespoke, limited edition cars are unique in trim and specification, as well as being littered with ostentatious touches like a Special Ivory exterior paint with a single fine line in Saddle, exclusively designed 21-inch Mulliner branded five spoke alloy wheels and “Majestic” badges along the front wheel arches. The interiors feature Magnolia seats, seat belts & panels, Dark Tan carpets, Magnolia binding & deep black curtains in the rear for added privacy, “Majestic” lettering inlaid on the rear iPad tables, cup-holder lid and waist rails, two loose cushions trimmed and piped in the same hide as the seats, a refrigerated bottle cooler with frosted glasses and crystal flutes. Each of the cars has its unique number and also features illuminated tread plate plaques with “Majestic” lettering. At the heart of the car lies Bentley’s iconic, powerful 6¾-litre twin-turbo V8 engine.
