Getting your hands on any Bentley is generally a sign that things have gone well for you, but for one lucky buyer at the recent Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, things are going swimmingly. That's because the person - whose identity is being held secret - has taken home the Chassis Number One 2011 Bentley Mulsanne.

That's the very first Mulsanne built, and it went for a price of $550,000 according to Gooding & Company, the auction house that sold the car. There are no plans to release the identity of the buyer, though it will be rather difficult to slip out in public with the Mulsanne while staying under the radar.

The new Mulsanne was sold alongside cars that dwarfed its price, however, including a 1962 Ferrari 250GT SWB California Spider that brought in a tremendous $5.115 million, a 1933 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Drop Head Coupe that sold for $4,180,000, and numerous others that sold for prices between $1 and $3 million, including a 1953 Aston Martin DB 2/4 Drop Head Coupe.

Total combined haul for the sellers of the 129 lots: $50,759,350. And for those that missed out on the action, you can keep abreast of future Gooding & Company events with their custom iPhone app, which you can download from their homepage at the link below.

  1. I too would want my identity kept hidden if I had bought this car. Ever bragg to your friends about the girl you bought home from the night before's all out drinking session? I thought not....

    Bad stuff?

  2. I didn't think it looked that bad in the other color either. The blue does look nice though. It is quite the stately car that has presence and commands attention without being ostentatious.
