Chronology
PredecessorBentley Arnage

The Bentley Mulsanne is a handmade full-size luxury car produced by Bentley Motors Limited in the United Kingdom.[4] The car is named after the Mulsanne Corner of the Le Mans racing circuit, Bentley cars having won six victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the past.

Legacy[edit]

The Mulsanne nameplate was last used by Bentley for a four-door saloon/sedan that was built between 1980 to 1992. It was resurrected as the nameplate for what would become the replacement for the Bentley Arnage, Bentley's then flagship car model. The new Mulsanne was unveiled at the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, on 16 August 2009. At the time of its launch, a coupe and convertible variant were expected to follow at some point as replacements for the Arnage-based Brooklands and Azure respectively.[5] Like the Arnage, the Mulsanne retains the venerable 6.75 L (6750 cc/411 in³) OHV V8 engine, modified to meet Euro V emissions regulations. The engine is lighter and features cylinder de-activation and variable cam phasing to improve fuel efficiency.[6] Unlike the less expensive Bentley Continental Flying Spur and Bentley Continental GT, the Mulsanne shares fewer common components with other marques in the Volkswagen Group.[7]

The Mulsanne is the first flagship car to be independently designed by Bentley Motors in nearly 80 years. The last independently designed Bentley was W.O. Bentley's 8 litre model in 1930,[8] after which most Bentleys shared platforms with Rolls-Royce cars.[7]

Mulsanne Speed (2014-)[edit]

Bentley Mulsanne Speed (2016 facelift)

The Speed is the performance derivative of the Bentley Mulsanne and offers greater performance and more premium features compared to the standard model. The 6.75-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine is modified to produce 530 bhp (395 kW; 537 PS) and 811 lb⋅ft (1,100 N⋅m) of torque (meanwhile the standard model's engine produces 505 bhp (377 kW; 512 PS) and 752 lb⋅ft (1,020 N⋅m) of torque) and benefits from a 13% increase in efficiency as a result of a newly redesigned combustion system that promotes a much faster and more controlled combustion process.[22] This gives the Speed a 0-62 mph sprint time of just 4.8 seconds, which is 0.3 seconds faster than the standard model. Meanwhile, the top speed is increased from 184 mph to 190 mph.[23][24][25] Other features specific to the Speed include: a Sports mode in the suspension system settings, more assertive styling features such as a dark tint finish applied to the exterior stainless steel matrix grilles, distinctive headlights, a “floating ellipse” design on the rear taillights, Bentley's first ever directional style wheel and tire set, and twin rifled exhaust tailpipes.

These extend out and pivot, giving the choice between upright, relaxed and reclined seating positions. The large-format sunroof features an Alcantara sunblind, is standard on the EWB, and can be controlled by the passengers or the driver. An optional centre console, crafted from the finest veneer, metal, glass and leather, can be ordered to divide the rear seats. The rear seats can also be specified with folding picnic tables. Electric privacy curtains are fitted as standard to the EWB and can be tailored with either a black or ivory coloured lining.
