Having presented us with a set of drawings at Pebble Beach, Bentley now seem to be more focused into the production of the Mulsanne Cabriolet.
According to British magazine Autocar, the Crewe outfit is seriously weighing down the option of the Mulsanne drop top. British optimism is clearly a motivation here.
It seems that the desire to have a car with a fold away roof isn’t going to something the British can say “no” to despite the infamous weather.
Word is going around that Bentley is so invested in this project that they will make a decision on the production probability of this car by the end of the year.
If everything works out and the decision goes through, the Bentley Mulsanne Cabriolet could be ready for the market in around two or so years.
Not that I like gossip or listening to rumors but if a car is ready for production that soon on, Bentley must be well ahead into this project.
The drawings we saw have left the main scene quite some time ago and development has seriously gone underway. It may seem like hacking the top off a car is simple but that’s not the case.
There’s a lot more structural work to consider, a lot of technology to put in the roof itself and plenty of quality control to make it acceptable.
That’s why rumor has it that an eventual market ready version of the Bentley Mulsanne Cabriolet would cost an extra £50.000 or roughly 79.313 USD more than the sedan.
