The Mulsanne is a thoroughly modern full-size sedan that captures the essence of the Bentley marque. It is elegant yet distinctly sporting in character, delivering effortless performance while within its sumptuous cabin, advanced technology sits discreetly with handcrafted luxury.The style of the new Mulsanne is a unique fusion of sportiness, coachbuilt elegance and solidity. Echoing the Bentley S -Type of the 1950s, the Mulsanne features a bold frontal design dominated by the traditional Bentley matrix grille and highly prominent, classic round inner headlamps with chrome surrounds, flanked by two, smaller outboard lamp clusters, all featuring the latest in lighting technology. The iconic Flying B' retractable radiator mascot is available as an option.
Of course it wouldn't be a Bentley if it didn't also offer an equally impressive and powerful engine: enter the 6.75-liter V8. Sharing its displacement and minor components with the legendary and historic “six-and-three-quarters” the engine totally revised for more power and improved fuel economy. The big motor is capable of producing a prodigious 505 horsepower and 752 lb-ft of torque. It is matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission that can be controlled with steering-wheel mounted paddleshifters. It can reduce the Mulsanne's ride height automatically at high speeds to reduce lift and improve aerodynamic stability.
A personalized keyless entry system allows multiple pre-programmed configurations and automatically sets radio stations, phone book, seat (including ventilation and massage modes, both front and rear), steering column and seatbelt settings and even the electrically operated rear-seat blinds for side and rear windows. The Mulsanne's cabin offers both old-world opulence and the latest in technology features.It is finished in high-quality mirror-matched wood veneers, leather hides and hand-finished stainless steel, as well as new touches such as beautiful glass' switches.A 14-speaker audio system with Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and 6-CD autochanger is provided as standard while the Naim for Bentley premium audio system may be specified as an option. It has the most powerful production in-car amplifier with 2200 Watts, eight dedicated DSP modes and 20 custom-made speakers. Twin eight-inch LCD screens incorporated into backs of the front headrests, a 20 GB hard drive and DVD player, a pair of Bluetooth headphones and a remote control are all part of the Entertainment Specification as well.
This car is the true combination of luxury and power with Bentleys historic and most powerful v8 engine.
