Throughout the 20th century Bentley was one of the most popular marques for coachbuilders so it’s perhaps fitting that ARES DESIGN chose Bentley’s four-door Mulsanne as the basis for this spectacular recreation of a Bentley Coupé. Using cutting-edge 21st century techniques ARES has created an exquisite Bentley Coupe for the modern era.
The ARES Coupe will be built in extremely limited numbers for customers who appreciate Bentley style but would like a bespoke handcrafted creation. Carrying out such a comprehensive reimagining of the classic Bentley is a formidable task but by creatively fusing modern and traditional methods ARES has built a stunning and exclusive vehicle.
Before the physical work began ARES carried out a full three-dimensional scan of the four-door Mulsanne and once this data had been processed it provided the basis for ARES to complete the necessary CAD work on the car. Extensive computer modelling resulted in a new look for the Coupe with a significantly more graceful roof line and re-profiled C-pillars seamlessly integrating into its rear wing structure.
A Conversion of the bodywork: from the Mulsanne 4-door sedan we have created a 2-door coupé
Front screen infotainment system with 8“ high resolution screen
Mulsanne audio system with 14 speakers, two subwoofers, powered through 6 channels with digital sound processing.
Electronic control unit upgrade
Inside the Mulsanne Coupe extensive changes have been made to accommodate the two-door configuration. Bespoke front seats are installed to allow entry and egress to the rear seats and the front seats are trimmed to match the rest of the interior. Bespoke modifications are carried out to the rear door trim panels to fit the coupe body style. Thanks to the extensive use of carbon and aluminium in its construction the Mulsanne Coupe is lighter than the four-door and along with an ARES performance upgrade the two-door Mulsanne goes as well as its stunning good looks suggest.
