Bentley Mulsanne: Updated Swagger and Power …

Aimed at greeting the public for the first time at the Geneva Autoshow is Bentley’s updated version of its Mulsanne flagship sedan.

The introduction of this car will see the nameplate separated into three distinct models for the first time which include the regular Mulsanne, high-performance Mulsanne Speed and the chauffer-driven Mulsanne which boasts a longer wheelbase.

Expected to be available to Bentley dealerships shortly after its official unveiling; its designers confirmed that the luxury sedan is all-new from the A-pillars forward with clearly visible changes on the car’s fenders, bumpers and bonnet. There is also a new grille inspired by cars like the 8-litre of the 1930 and what we call “floating” headlights. Like every refreshed Bentley, the car has a new taillight design and a reshaped bumper.

A dark tint on its exterior brightware, tinted headlights and taillights, sports exhaust, speed badging and a set of 21’’ wheels make the Mulsanne stand out from the regular model. Power for the Mulsanne and Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase is provided by a 6.75L twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 376 kW and 1020 Nm of torque and a sprint from 0-100km/h in an impressive 5.1seconds.

As its name suggests ‘’Mulsanne Speed” gets a sprint from zero to 100km/h in 4.8 seconds; all that power brought about by a tuned version of the same engine as that of the Mulsanne and Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase. The engine delivers 395 kW and 1100 Nm of torque.

Sporty treatment for the Speed model includes an “S” mode for its eight-speed automatic gearbox.
