Mulliner Bentley's bespoke coachbuilding unit, has created a unique keycase to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the company. Made from Dark Stained Burr Walnut and Piano Black veneer, it includes a fluttering 'B' paperweight, a set of keys and a brochure featuring never-before-seen 1930 8 Litre images.

It's the perfect present to welcome a new owner to their luxurious car.


As a company that is primarily focused on design, Bentley takes its aesthetics seriously. It shows in the precision positioning of its quilting, the selection of leather from by-products of cattle, the wood from sustainable forests and the innovative patterns on its levers. A car like the Continental GT W12 beckons as you approach it to show its sculptural beauty and power through carefully planned lighting.

The Continental GT is Bentley's most sophisticated open-top vehicle. The rear tonneau of Continental GT, for instance it was the biggest piece of dark-stained Burr Walnut veneer that was book-matched. Similarly, the electrically-operated glass sunroof and champagne cooler that incorporated hand-blown and hand-cut lead crystal bottles marked a new benchmark in luxury and innovation.

Bentley is the most sought-after brand in the automotive industry worldwide due to its distinctive design and quality. The company continues to push boundaries by utilizing the most advanced technology and craftsmanship, including the introduction of a digital instrument cluster and an electric tilt-opening rear glass sunroof, an artisan-made docking station for Apple iPads, and electrochromic "smart" glass that can be changed between opaque and transparent at the touch of one button.

Bentley celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2019 100 years after it was founded. The marque, currently owned by Volkswagen independently following years of disputes with BMW and Volkswagen, had planned a variety of special launches and events to celebrate this milestone. The marque planned a number special events and launches to commemorate the historic occasion before the planning of a pandemic became a priority.

Bentley is a luxury car manufacturer that makes ostentatious and luxurious cars. However, even the keys are a statement. The Bentayga key is made from sterling silver and features the large 'B' symbol that lets everyone know you're driving a Bentley. It also has the years 1919 and 2019 to commemorate the company's centenary.

Bentley Mulliner redesigned and developed the Mulsanne to become the ultimate Grand Touring vehicle. The rear seats are designed to give passengers the most comfortable and private experience. They were inspired by the luxurious private aircraft. The bespoke heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system was created to provide each passenger with the ideal temperature control.

The Mulsanne is equipped with twin turbocharged 6.75 litre W12 engine with 560bhp and 479lb-ft torque. This colossal power is complemented by a brand new suspension design that gives Bentley's signature hushed ride.

In celebration of its Centenary, Bentley introduced a bespoke specification called the Centenary Specification for cars built in 2019. The cabin features cross-stitching and contrast stitching in Centenary Gold throughout. The Bentley Wings are embroidered with Centenary Gold on the headrests as well as the seats and other parts of the car. This is a great way to celebrate the occasion. A custom Bentley key case is included in the Centenary Specification, making the Bentley experience all-inclusive.


The Bentley Mulsanne key comes with an open button on the trunk and another which starts the car. The key also comes with a switch that allows you to turn on the parking brake. There is to fold and unfold the mirrors when parking in tight spots. Utilizing this feature will aid in getting in and out of your vehicle more easily.

Each key takes about two days to create. The key is cut by hand, then shaped, stitched, sealed, and then polished to achieve a high-quality result. It is robust, compact, and fits the Bentley key perfectly. Its design is similar to the Volkswagen Phaeton large car's key however it feels heavier and has a more luxurious feel.

It is also equipped with Secure-A-Key, which helps prevent theft of keys that are keyless. This device is inserted into the remote control fob, and is disabled in the event that the key isn't used for a short period of time. It stops thieves from transmitting the key's frequency to other devices that can unlock and start the car.

Bentley's unique design reflects the company's values of exquisite craftsmanship and engineering expertise. It also includes cutting-edge technology. Over 4,000 employees are employed at the Crewe headquarters, which is responsible for the development, design and production of Bentley automobiles. They apply their skills that have been handed down through generations to cutting-edge automotive technologies. This is the characteristic of British manufacturing at its finest.


Bentley's Mulliner division lets customers design their own vehicle. Guests sit at a series of pictures referred to as "mood stations" and pick a set of photos ranging from scenic landscapes to sporting events that can inspire them. Every time a choice is made, the pattern that emerges will reveal the model of the Bentley, as well as the color and style preferences for the customized Bentley.

The guests receive an individual key case created by hand that houses the R.F.I.D. enabled key cards. Keys can be adorned with Bentley Muliner Personalised welcome lamps that illuminate the path of the opening door with the owner's name or logo as they approach the car.

Bentley says it takes roughly 500 man-hours to design and put together the typical Mulsanne. The key to this time-consuming effort is a deliberate refusal to embrace modern tech. Instead of using a machine to place the perfectly-matched leather seats, workers at the Crewe factory do it by hand. Drivers have to park their cars manually, rather than relying on the built-in sensors to guide them into perpendicular and parallel spots.

In the course of the event, Bentley showcased its Mulliner personalization options with one particular example that was the Mulsanne W.O. Edition, which pays homage to the man who founded the company, William Osler Bentley. The 100 limited edition cars include the key, which displays an item from the 1930 8 Litre crankshaft.
