Only last year did Bentley get around to announcing a small run of Mulsanne convertibles. Said to be called the Bentley Grand Convertable. And yet, we have yet to see anything about a Mulsanne coupe. Good thing there's Ares, here to save the day.
The Modena, Italy based coachbuilder has announced their own modified Mulsanne coupe. Though this time they didn't work alone.
In cooperation with German firm Mcchip-DKR, Ares created a fixed-top two-door version of the Mulsanne. More than just a modification, this transforms the vehicle into a like-new creation you'd expect to see straight out of Bentley. Aluminum and carbon fiber replace the rear doors, and a seamless rework of the interior allow the vehicle to look as if it was built this way.
As far as we know, the mechanics of the vehicle haven't been modified. So expect the stock 6.75-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine to deliver the previously established 505 horsepower and 752 pound-feet of torque.
The Mulsanne coupe is one of 4 projects announced by Ares in celebration of their newest headquarters opening. The others included a C2 Chevrolet Corvette restomod, a re-bodied Mercedes-Benz G-Class, a 964-series Porsche 911 Targa restomod, and two different Land Rover Defenders.
Future Ares project includes a Lamborghini Huracán made to resemble a De Tomaso Pantera; a Ferrari GTC4 Lusso made to resemble a Ferrari 412; and convertible and wagon versions of the Tesla Model S.
