|   Thursday, April 30, 2015
This week in Essen's Techno-Classica auto show, the new Blue Train from Bentley's Mulsanne Speed debuted celebrating its 85th anniversary. Currently only four pieces of it would be handed over to continental Europe customers.

Bentley's most skilled women staffs and craftsmen held the responsibility to give this concept of Mulsanne Speed to a real look. The whole project was leaded by Mulliner. This model has delightful references to its historical versions and a lot of modern techs in terms of power-train and design have been used to make it a next generation model.


Its door panels have fluting pattern and rear quarter now has echoing interior similar to Barnato's car. Its dashboard facia is expertly crafted with a veneer image of original Bentley's Blue Train Six Speed. The tread plate plaques hold the words for 85 years completion. Front grille has come with a square sized mesh inspired by Speed Six original.

Bentley Heritage's Collection Chief Richard Charlesworth states that among the most popular and an enjoyed car in whole world, Blue Train is one and it also perfectly embodies racing quality of Bentley. Though Woolf Barnato had already won three times the Le Mans trophy, still winning Blue Train races captured audience's imagination and made it a legend. Winning the Calais-Mediterranee provided the guaranty of Speed Six's real place in auto industry.

Though the new Blue Train is coming in limited edition only but it will have unique features such as a new personalized hamper, camel hide which matches interior to exterior and trimmed burnt Oak. It has been crafted beautifully with leather cutlery and leather rug wrapped around having Blue Train in written embroidery. Exclusive Berking & Robbe silver plates cutlery are included in the hamper. Porcelain of Haviland Limoges crockery is there as well along with LINLEY's crystal champagne and Angora's picnic rug.

The Regional Director for Bentley Europe said that it is significant that the company is producing only four limited editions of this model since Barnato popularly made this to club of London before four minutes from the train's arrival in Calais. It uniquely designed elements are enough to bring the nostalgic memories back of most legendary Bentley models till date.

The exterior upgrades of Mulsanne Speed are kept a little simpler with new black wheels, steel blue paints, menacing and new darkened grilles. Interior upgrades are very limited having the door panels structured like Speed Six of Barnato. The wood veneer situated on dashboard has a race winner image upon it.

Mulliner first researched the exact requirements of Bentley customers that will fit with his model. He realized the upgrades should be carefully chosen and theme must be matching to classic look. Providing luxury comfort is a big task which is equally taken care by Mulliner. Bentley is also bringing another model with name Mulsanne Speed's Sedan. This is for the honor of racing heritage and it will also be released with limited editions only. The Chairman of Bentley, Woolf Barnato is keen to make not just high speed cars but also full of comfort and they should look like winners.
