The latest video in a series promoting the Bentley Mulsanne gives us our final look at the car as it leaves the factory. Find out more inside.
English automakers Bentley have released the sixth and final video in a series outlining the production of the Bentley Mulsanne. The five-minute long video shows the completed car at the end of the assembly line as it rolls into its final stage of testing.
Inspectors at the last point examine the car from a subjective point of view, explains Mulsanne Engine and Quality Manager Donna Morrey. "Internally, we say we are the hands and eyes of the customer." Morrey's team puts the car through a two-hour, 503-point checklist before giving each unit a thumbs-up or thumbs-down.
By this stage, any mechanical kinks should have been worked out. Morrey's unit at Bentley headquarters in Crewe, England, is instead looking for any overall problems with each unit. "Every Bentley is road tested for approximately thirty miles on the roads around Crewe," explains Mulsanne project director Ashley Wickham in the video.
"This makes sure that every detail is perfect, and that we as a team are happy to hand that car in the first step to our dealers, but ultimately to one of our customers."
