Bentley Mulsanne Speed will be available this winter
Promising the world’s “fastest ultra-luxury driving experience”, Bentley have announced the release of a new Mulsanne Speed. Designed to combine luxury and performance, the Mulsanne Speed can a reach top of 190mph.
The Bentley Mulsanne Sport has been created to be the new flagship for the company. A re-engineered powertrain utilising Bentley’s 6.75 litre twin-turbo V8 engine gives an acceleration of 0-60mph in 4.8 seconds, top speed 190 mph. The combustion system has been completely redesigned to promote a more controlled and faster process.
The new engine comes with a recalibrated gearbox and engine management system, made to better control the torque and power. A cylinder deactivation system runs the car as a V4 when running at a light load.
This more powerful engine gives the car a greater range, an increase of 13% extending to almost 50 miles.
As you expect with the Bentley marque, the Mulsanne Speed has had no corners cut. Trim features include diamond quilted hide panels and seats, drilled alloy sports foot pedals, and indented hide headlining.
A 60 GB hard drive can store music and films for display on the cars entertainment systems. Onboard Wi-Fi is also available keeping the car connected at all times. Premium audio systems from Naim and a glass bottle cooler complete the package.
“The new Mulsanne Speed is the car that defines Bentley, as a flagship for driving luxury performance. Our customers don’t compromise, and we’ve adopted the same approach in the design, engineering and crafting of our new flagship,” said Chairman and Chief Executive of Bentley Motors, Wolfgang Dürheimer. “The Mulsanne Speed is distinguished, calm and relaxing, but always with a connection to the road and relentless dynamic performance on demand. In this car, every journey becomes a drive.”
The Mulsanne Speed will be officially unveiled at the Paris Motor Show ahead of customer delivery this winter.
