This model complements the Continental range of Le Mans Limited Edition models which are available exclusively to North America.
“2013 is the 90th Anniversary of the first Le Mans 24 Hours race, in which Bentley was the only British marque to participate, and also the 10th Anniversary of the most recent win for the Speed 8 in 2003,” said Christophe Georges, COO of Bentley Motors America. “Pebble Beach, for us, is the ideal place to debut and display our Le Mans Limited Edition Mulsanne model and to showcase our flagship vehicle in its Limited Edition livery to a very knowledgeable audience of automotive enthusiasts and Bentley owners from around the world.”

The specifications, each inspired by a driver from Bentley’s six victories at the legendary Le Mans 24 Hours race, will feature diamond-quilted hide seat covering, diamond-quilted hide door panels, drilled alloy foot pedals, sports tuned suspension and steering, ‘Quad’ Effect Tailpipe Finishers and two-piece five spoke dark tint alloy wheels.
