Designed for those with the preference for being driven, the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase is the pinnacle of comfort and luxury. With extra legroom for rear passengers, in-car entertainment and the option of reclining seats, it is a first-class way to travel. This is the new benchmark in comfort and refinement.
Not only is this considered to be the most comfortable and magnificent car in the world, the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase offers a driving experience like no other. The 63/4 litre, twin turbocharged V8 engine produces a mighty 505 bhp at 4,200 rpm and up to 1,020 Nm of torque at 1,750 rpm. With top speeds of 184 mph, this powerful engine takes it from 0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds. The 8-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive provide seamless gear changes and accelerations.
The grilles, brightware, headlamp clusters and rear lamps have all been revised for the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase to give a more contemporary feel to the car. The wider radiator grille with bright stainless steel sits in front of the Bentley matrix with vertical vanes fanning out from the centre. The lower grilles have been widened to sit in line with the front bumper, giving the car a more assertive presence. New headlamp technology allows the lamps to operate themselves automatically, with four different light modes to cover various driving requirements: urban roads, country lanes, motorways and normal main beams. The new striking rear lamps glow with the 3D form of the Flying ‘B’ when operated, making all on the road aware that your car is a Bentley.
The Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase has more legroom than any previous Mulsanne, adding 250mm of additional leg space in the rear of the cabin. The increase in legroom and interior space makes it the most generously proportioned luxury limousine to be found. To make best use of the additional legroom, there is the option of reclining airline-styled seats with seamlessly integrated electronic leg rests and electric curtains. A tilting panoramic glass sunroof invites rays of light into the rear of the cabin, whilst an electric Alcantara blind eliminates any glare at the touch of a button. An elongated centre console, crafted from the finest veneers, metal, glass and leather is a beautiful option that can divide the rear seats. The console conceals a large range of storage, including picnic tables that stylishly fold out from within. There is a choice of 24 beautiful, premium coloured hides as well as a choice of a mono-tone colour split or three duo-tone colour splits. Other interior features include: leather headlining; a single-tone, 4-spoke, hide-trimmed steering wheel; a hide and chrome trimmed gear lever and polished ‘MULSANNE’ tread plates.
The sleek veneer of the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase’s dashboard holds an eight-inch touch screen infotainment and vehicle system which allows you to connect to your phone, satellite imagery, street view maps and Apple CarPlay. There are also optional twin 10.4-inch touch screen tablets in the rear seats which can be taken with you on the go. The in-car WiFi hotspot allows up to eight devices to stream media and video call.
Personalisation is synonymous with the Bentley brand and there are many ways to make your mark on your Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase. There are options of over 100 exterior colours, 11 veneers, 24 hides, dup-tone exteriors and 21-inch radiance wheels. Additionally, you can choose from comfort headrests and super-soft Alcantara headrest cushions or a powered Alcantara roller blind. There is also the option to have a rear screen, controlled from front or rear cabin.
The Mulliner Specification is also available purposely for the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase’s interior. It includes inspired styling cues such as the diamond-quilted seats, a knurled gear level and organ stop controls. With the look completed by drilled alloy sport pedal and Bentley carbon fibre waistrail inserts.
And if looking for a truly one-of-a-kind car then no request is too extravagant for the Mulliner bespoke department.
