Mulliner - rare designs
Mulliner's role is to respond to the requirements of Bentley's outstanding customers. Bentley cars can be customized according to any customer requests and desires to personalize them.
The roots of the Mulliner date back to the 16th century, when the company focused primarily on the manufacture of luxury horse-drawn carts. In 1923, Mulliner presented for the first time the design of the body structure of the Bentley with the 3-liter Bentley 2-seater at the Olympia in London, just four years after Bentley Motors was founded.
In 1953, Mulliner created the cabin of one of the most popular Bentley models ever, the R Type Continental. This model inspired the design of the Continental GT for the present day. Then in 1957, Mulliner introduced the Continental Flying Spur, a four-door saloon specially made on the Bentley Continental chassis. Mulliner officially became part of Bentley Motors in 1959, setting up its own workshops in Crewe.
