The annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California has become a pre-eminent showcase for some of the rarest, fastest, most luxurious and most expensive vehicles in the world—which made it the ideal setting for the debut of the Bentley Mulsanne Vision Convertible Concept. The four-place open-air Bentley was revealed to just a select handful of international journalists at the recent Pebble Beach gathering, but it will no doubt be garnering plenty of publicity in the near future when it joins the Mulsanne lineup as a production model.
Well, truth be told, the party line from the brand is that the Bentley Mulsanne Vision Concept Convertible only provides a “glimpse into the potential future of the marque’s flagship family,” but the company's chairman and CEO, Wolfgang Dürheimer, was a bit more forthcoming.
“The modern, luxurious, high-tech Mulsanne [sedan] provides a perfect foundation on which to create the world’s most elegant convertible,” according to Dürheimer. “The Convertible Concept will extend the appeal of the Mulsanne family, while enhancing the profile of the Bentley brand, particularly in new and emerging markets.”
