Proclaiming a new pinnacle in quality craftsmanship, Bentley has introduced the Mulsanne Speed which combines a striking exterior with substance that resonates with its name and supports its style unreservedly. Evolving on the graceful performance that has always characterised the Mulsanne, the new Speed poses more profound control and driving poise with revised Sport settings for greater throttle, suspension and steering allowing this model to become the most dynamic, most exquisite expression of the powerful luxury for which Bentley stands.
Below the bonnet rests a newly re-engineered 6.75 litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine that when activated is designed to increase acceleration, power and torque, thrusting the car to speeds of 0 to 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds (100 km/h in 4.9 seconds) and propelling it onto an incredible top speed of 190mph (305 km/h).
A true game changer, the Mulsanne Speed also enjoys 13% efficiency improvements meaning that it will deliver 50 miles (805km) more range than another vehicle with the same sized engine and fuel tank.
Designed to turn heads, a dark tint has been applied to the vehicle exterior making features such as the lower bumper apertures, headlamps, rear light, wing vents and the trademark Bentley matrix grille extraordinarily eye-catching while the exclusive 21" wheel design and the new addition of the 'Speed' fender badge really set this car apart.
Equally, the interior cabin is a modern-day reinterpretation of the impeccable interior of the Bentley flagship and hands a humble nod to Bentley's racing heritage. Throughout the cabin you can find a 14-speaker audio system with Digital Signal Processing (DSP) which alongside the Mulsanne Speed's acoustic glazing and sound proofing presents an unmatched audio experience. The infotainment system features a hard drive powering the satellite navigation, data, telephone and Bluetooth connectivity while other interior trimmings include drilled alloy sports foot pedals, a knurled sports gear lever, contrast stitching, Bentley embroidered emblems and the renowned diamond quilted hides as well as a new additional luxury of polished stainless steel tread plates that come engraved with the words 'Mulsanne' and 'Speed'.
Buyers can create a contemporary two-tone feel with the new unique colour split available to order as well as new stitch lines, a new technical veneer option with Piano Black veneer panels that now feature expertly handcrafted carbon fibre inlays.
Even at this level of luxury, the team at the Bentley Mulliner workshop can help you make your Mulsanne Speed your very own. For bespoke orders Bentley can truly personalise your car in a variety of ways from matching any colour you wish to provide to create your perfect paint finish to producing veneers perhaps cut from a tree on your own property should you not opt from the wide-range hand-selected woods available. Custom-made equipment can be designed, built and installed to create something spectacular and bring your vision to life.
The Mulsanne Speed is truly an accomplished combination of performance, luxury and style.
