In resurrecting the Mulsanne nameplate for its all-new flagship, Bentley is not only paying homage to its great racing tradition, but also it's establishing a new benchmark in European luxury automobiles.
From its wide-eye headlamps flanking the signature matrix grille to its sensual backside, the styling is elegant yet sporty. A multimedia system with a 40-gigabyte hard drive highlights a cabin abounding in hand-crafted leather and wood. Buyers choose from several types of leather and wood.
A 505-horsepower, 6.75-liter, twin-turbocharged V-8 delivers power to the rear wheels by way of an eight-speed automatic transmission. Top speed is 184 miles per hour with 5.1 seconds needed to make the zero to 60 mph leap.
