  • Bentley Mulsanne Convertible Concept preview sketches

    In the world of $400,000-plus ultraluxe convertibles, things are rather volatile. Or at least it appears so, as the Bentley Mulsanne Convertible teased in concept sketches last year will not be built, according to the brand's CEO. Speaking with Car and Driver, Bentley boss Wolfgang Schreiber said the concept, when shown to a small group of Bentley owners last year, didn't arouse enough interest to justify its construction--despite the killer lines of the long, tall convertible. The problem? Not the look or the feel, but the breadth of its appeal. Only some parts of the U.S. and Europe would...
