Luxury When Functionality Meets
Cecil Chao purchased the new Bentley Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase, the first Bentley in his fleet, and has high praise for the technology and interior
For business professionals wanting to travel in ultimate luxury and style, Bentley’s latest Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase (EWB) limousine promises a comfortable ride that is akin to first-class air travel.
The limousine is the newest model in the company’s Mulsanne range. Its name comes from the Mulsanne corner at the Circuit de la Sarthe in Le Mans, France— home of the famous Le Mans 24 Hours, which Bentley has won six times.
Customers can personalise their Mulsanne EWB, which combines exquisite craftsmanship with sophisticated technology, from a wide range of duo-tone paint combinations for the exterior. The limousine sets the bar high for automotive comfort and style—the type of car to turn heads on the street.
Property tycoon Cecil Chao is no stranger to fine cars, being the proud owner of more than 10, and is a new fan of the Mulsanne EWB. His car features a glacier white exterior matched with an allred interior—the only Bentley in Hong Kong with that colour combination.
“This is the first time that I’ve bought a Bentley,” says Cecil. “In the past, I’ve always bought Rolls-royces, but I was recommended the Bentley and wanted to try it out, so I bought one.”
Cecil is the founder and executive chairman of Cheuk Nang Holdings, which develops, manages and invests in property in Hong Kong, Macau, Mainland China and Malaysia. No stranger to luxury, the businessman believes that quality and style can coexist with function.
“In life, the most important things are having a roof over your head, food, clothing on your back and being able to get from A to B,” he says. “Of course, a car is one of the most important modes of travel, so quality is of great importance.”
Cecil hails the EWB as a car with a superior interior and some of the latest technology on offer. “I feel that the interior build of the car is excellent, from the carpet to the roof to the side panels, and the new technology is superior to anything else that is out there,” he says.
Indeed, the EWB was built to mimic a mobile home. The 250mm extension of the model’s wheelbase means maximum leg room for passengers, and Bentley further utilised the space by developing airline-style electronic leg rests that extend
