  • Price: $290,000
  • Mileage: 11 mpg city/18 mpg highway

The Mulsanne is Bentley's flagship. Sprinting to 60 mph from a stop in less than six seconds, it is powered by a 505-horsepower 6.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine, putting the Mulsanne on the gas-guzzler list. An eight-speed, driver-shiftable automatic transmission sends power to the rear wheels.

More of a luxury touring car than a sports car, the Mulsanne places passenger comfort ahead of aggressive performance.

Inside, expansive leather surfaces are interrupted with real wood accents. Even the rear seats have power adjustments and are heated. The car's multimedia interface includes a navigation system.
