Production of the ultra-exclusive Bentley Mulsanne 6.75 Edition, the final version of the long model, has been delayed due to continued plant closure caused by the coronavirus outbreak.

The Limited Management 6.75 Edition has been created by Bentley coachbuilding division, Mulliner, and will mark the end of more than 11 years of production execution for the Mulsanne. The British signature flashing model outlet has been drawn up from 2009. It will also be the final of the machine to feature the 6.75-liter Bentley V8 engine, the longest-running V8 in continuous production.

Only 30 models of the 6.75 Edition by Mulliner will be available before the production of the car ends. These 30 models, described by the company as a "parting fit for a British masterpiece of automotive engineering and craftsmanship," were due to be produced this spring. But with the Bentley Crewe factory still closed, says the production firm is now due to be completed in the summer.
