According to the carmaker's data, it takes 125 man-hours to create the body of a pre-production Mulsanne. Production takes place at the company's Crewe factory, a plant in which humans work right beside robots.
“During these early, pre-production stages we are exhaustively testing the build process to achieve the absolute precision and quality we are seeking for our customers,” Gary Picken, Senior Production Manager said.
“The Mulsanne has a beautiful and very complex body made from an intelligent mix of high-strength steels, aluminium and composites. Within one assembly area we’re utilising traditional skills for which Bentley is renowned right alongside state-of-the-art manufacturing technology. We combine these two different approaches because it is the best possible route to create a car that will be enjoyed by generations of drivers.”
