The Mulsanne, with its understated elegance and phenomenal power, remains Bentley’s consummate saloon. It is the purest expression of luxury and performance. The ultimate representation of Bentley’s design, craft and engineering expertise, it is a car for those with vision and the power to bring their ideas to life. One whose elegant interior gives you time and space to make plans, and delivers the technology to make them happen. Whether you are behind the steering wheel, or being driven in unrivaled comfort.
The new Mulsanne’s steel monocoque body structure is clad in super formed aluminum for fewer joins. Following assembly of the shell, each panel is primed, painted, sanded, lacquered and polished to a mirror finish by hand, the car’s sweeping lines finally coming to life. The new Mulsanne features sharper lines to the fenders, bonnet and boot, which combine to give the entire exterior a contemporary appearance, with the bumpers emerging seamlessly from the bodyshell. From the front, the car looks wide, low and tightly connected to the road.
Beneath the Mulsanne’s bonnet lies a 6¾ litre, twin turbocharged V8 engine which produces 505 bhp (377 kW / 512 PS) at 4,200 rpm and up to 1,020 Nm (752 lb.ft) of torque at 1,750 rpm. It accelerates from 0-60 mph in 5.1 seconds (0 -100 km/h in 5.3 seconds) and on to a top speed of 184 mph (296 km/h). Performance figures like this are unheard of in any other four-door luxury car, and help deliver a truly spirited drive. Cutting-edge engine technology comes with competitive emissions (C02 of 342g/km) and fuel consumption (18.8mpg).
The Mulsanne offers the most refined automotive interiors in the world, where drive time becomes time to think. Only the finest hides and most exquisite veneers are used throughout the cabin. A glance also reveals an environment rich with possibilities for personalization.
Front and rear seats, door trim, armrests and switches are a contemporary take on classic Bentley design. It takes more than 150 hours to create the Mulsanne’s sumptuous leather interior. Seats are upholstered with traditionally tanned, soft-touch hides in a palette of 24 exquisite colours to give unrivalled comfort and the characteristic leather aroma. A fully colour-matched interior is counter-pointed by polished-steel brightware, knurled controls and precision-cut, chrome-finish fittings. These include bullseye air vents with trademark, traditional organ stop controls. These heritage cues and beautifully refined mechanisms are a delight to use on every journey, long or short. Ambient lighting can also be adjusted to reflect your mood.
