Bentley Mulsanne is the Most Powerful Expression of Luxury Ever

The new Mulsanne range is our exquisite flagship, and takes Bentley’s brand essence of luxury performance to new heights. A meeting of the minds, a place for visionary thinkers to express themselves through personalizing our bespoke luxury and automotive craftsmanship. The Mulsanne and its more powerful new sibling, the Mulsanne Speed both deliver peerless comfort, creating a powerful sanctuary on the road for you to think and innovate. The Mulsanne range is created for remarkable people who share a passion to change the world.

Both models are equipped with the impressive newly re-engineered 6 ¾ liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine, which provides a top speed of 190 mph and effortlessly races from 0-60 in only 4.8 seconds. The Mulsanne embraces both the driver and passengers and the driver in tranquility, as they share adventures in the Rocky Mountains.

The Mulsanne is renowned for stunning design, stopping viewers in their tracks. Every feature has been designed with subtle elegance in mind. Superforming technology has created striking design, with a unique air of power and refinement. Eye-catching polished stainless steel brightware provides Mulsanne with the elegance of a true luxury automotive classic. The unmistakable Bentley matrix grille covers the radiator and hand-built V8 engine, while the instantly recognizable large, inset headlamps light your way. Possibly the most distinguished enhancement option available for this pristine vehicle is the addition of the trademark ‘Flying B’ radiator mascot.

The most significant change to the Mulsanne is the newly re-engineered 6 3/4 litre, twin-turbocharged V8 engine. Acceleration, power and torque have been dramatically increased, propelling the new Mulsanne to 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds and on to a phenomenal top speed of 190 mph. The Mulsanne Speed produces a maximum torque 811 lb/ft second only to Bugatti Veyron. Even with the astounding increases in performance the vehicle is 13% more fuel efficient, and has increased its range by 50 miles to 400.

The Mulsanne cabin is where high speed meets luxury. World renowned for its seemingly limitless power in comfortable and sumptuous elegance. The 8-speed automatic transmission is a steering wheel-mounted paddleshift system, seamlessly transitioning between gears for a smooth surge of acceleration. Traditional craftsmanship teamed with ultra-modern communication, navigation and entertainment systems create the ultimate mobile space. Mirror matched veneers are sanded and lacquered many times by the skilled hands of Bentley’s craftsmen and women. The leather hides are hand-selected from herds that graze at altitude in northern Europe, to reduce insect bites and even the slightest imperfection. The seats they cover are stitched with such pride that Bentley upholsterers sign the backs of each hide. Obsessive attention to every detail is a hallmark of Bentley – around 170 hours go into the furnishing of every Mulsanne.
