Bentley Mulsanne Visionaries

The future doesn’t just happen it is created, by visionaries. Innovative futurists with the creative insight and technological know-how shape our future, individually or collectively defining the world in which we live. Bentley explores this concept with a collection of Visionaries films. Meeting innovators like bespoke tailor to the stars Clive Darby, musical innovator Jean-Michel Jarre, Lalique CEO Silvio Denz, Federation International l’Automobile President Jean Todt, each gives their interpretation and vision of the future from their own unique perspective. Coming soon to Mulsanne Visionaries are interviews with Pritzker Award-winning Chinese architect Wang Shu, World Land Speed Record holder Wing Cdr Andy Green and actor and philanthropist Jackie Chan.

ANDY GREEN
Wing Commander Andy Green has held the world land speed record for the last 15 years, achieving over 763mph in Thrust SSC. As part of the Bentley Mulsanne Visionaries series, he puts the Mulsanne through its paces at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, USA, spiritual home of land speed records for close to half a century. Green talks about the extraordinary innovations that have taken place over the past century and some of those to expect from the next one, and reveals why he is attempting to break his own land speed record again in the Bloodhound SSC, a car that spearheads broader vision for the future of automotive technology.
