New Bentley Mulsanne Family (Facelift)

Bentley announced the new face of the Mulsanne family. Bentley decided to add a new style to the Mulsane: an extended wheelbase (+250 mm). Based on my experience, the Mulsanne needed an extended wheelbase, however, the new Mulsanne now weighs more than 2.5-tonnes!

Mulsanne looks more tempting than ever and has improved its pre-crash and safety features, which were both necessary. With that said, it is still a very heavy car! I will update the photos once I spot this new Mulsanne at Jack Barlcay in London.


Here are some of  the facts;

  • The Mulsanne Speed, 6¾-litre twin-turbo V8 engine with 537 PS (530 bhp / 395 kW) and 1,100 Nm (811 lb.ft) of torque resulting in a 0-60 mph time of just 4.9 seconds and a top speed of 190 mph.
  • The Mulsanne, 6¾-litre V8 develops 512 PS (505 bhp / 377 kW) and 1,020 Nm (752 lb.ft) of torque. 5.1 seconds en route to a top speed of 184 mph (296 km/h
  • Automatic gearbox is still ZF 8-speed.
  • “‘S’ mode gives the driver even more control, and maintains the engine speed above 2,000 rpm so that the turbochargers are always spooled and ready to deliver instantaneous performance.”
  • All LED headlights automatically suits to the driving conditions and high beam assist.
  • “The main 8” display touch screen is connected to a 60 GB solid-state hard drive for the storage of on-board media.”
  • “Between 10 km/h and 250 km/h the Blind Spot Warning system detects vehicles behind the Mulsanne and in its blind spots, predicting the possibility of a collision. Visual warnings are issued to the driver via flashing lights in the door mirrors.”
  • “For additional safety while on the move, the new Mulsanne comes with Advanced Automatic Stability Control (ASC) including collision mitigation features.”
  • And Bentley entertainment 10.2″ tablet based on Android!

Bentley Mulsanne Speed | 50 Shades of Grey

Bentley Mulsanne Speed, this is the faster version of the standard Mulsanne. So what is special with the Mulsanne Speed, it is powered by a 6.75-lt V8 engine producing 537 HP with 1100 nm of torque. It is coupled with 8-speed automatic gearbox and only needs 4.9 seconds to reach 100 km/h with the top speed of 305 km/h. And it has the most ideal colour for this week, 50 Shades of Grey!

This Bentley Mulsanne Speed is painted in Dark Grey Satin, it looks very sexy and that’s why I found a resemblance with the 50 Shades of Grey movie. And it is still available to see at Jack Barclay, HR Owen dealer!
