The yearly Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in California has turned into a pre-famous showcase for a portion of the rarest, quickest, most sumptuous and most costly vehicles on the planet—which made it the perfect setting for the introduction of the Bentley Mulsanne Vision Convertible Concept. The four-place outdoors Bentley was uncovered to only a select modest bunch of global writers at the late Pebble Beach gathering, yet it will most likely be accumulating a lot of exposure sooner rather than later when it joins the Mulsanne lineup as a generation model. 

All things considered, frankly, the partisan principal from the brand is that the Bentley Mulsanne Vision Concept Convertible just gives a "look into the potential eventual fate of the marque's leader family," yet the organization's director and CEO, Wolfgang Dürheimer, was more expected. 

"The present day, sumptuous, cutting edge Mulsanne [sedan] gives a flawless establishment on which to make the world's most rich convertible," as per Dürheimer. "The Convertible Concept will amplify the advance of the Mulsanne family, while improving the profile of the Bentley brand, especially in new and developing markets."                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Since breaking away from Rolls-Royce in the late 1990s and becoming a part of the Volkswagen Group, Bentley has been steadily working to recapture its position as pre-eminent purveyor of luxury vehicles. And because VW has taken a relatively “hands-off” approach to ownership, while still providing a much-needed influx of resources, the results have been increasingly impressive. Thus, the current flagship—the Bentley Mulsanne, introduced at Pebble Beach in 2009—is almost 220 inches of handcrafted elegance, wrapped around a twin-turbocharged V8 that makes 504hp and 750 lb.-ft. of torque. It also makes short work of the ol’ 0-60 benchmark by accelerating to a mile a minute in just 5.2 seconds, then reaches 100 mph in 11.3 seconds, and tops out at 180 to 185 mph.

But while that may be the starting point for the new convertible concept, the Bentley Mulsanne Vision is more than just the sedan with two fewer doors and a new roof. Designers carefully adjusted the proportions of the vehicle to provide a unified and more aggressive look that’s enhanced by particularly strong wheel-arch lines, a much less vertical windshield, a higher waistline and shorter windows. The overall appearance is notably more sinister and dynamic than that of the sedan.

Further details are sketchy, so to speak, but the cockpit is said to deliver an “unrivalled combination of chic, contemporary design, sumptuous materials, painstaking attention to detail and supreme refinement.”

As far as when Bentley may begin delivering a Bentley Mulsanne convertible to customers, soon to be adnouncemt .
