THE NEW MULSANNE SPEED
UNRIVALLED STOPPING POWER
The Bentley Mulsanne was designed to stop viewers in their tracks. But thanks to some striking new detail work, the Mulsanne Speed will see them rooted to the spot even longer.
IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS
A dark tint has been applied to External brightware, including the trademark Bentley matrix grille. Lower bumper apertures, headlamps, rear lights and wing vents all benefit from the same treatment.
A LOOK THAT SAYS IT ALL
Rifled stainless steel tailpipes lend dynamic detail to the famously sleek rear haunch. With a unique new 21" wheel design and the subtle addition of the ‘Speed’ fender badge, the imposing look is complete.
Beneath the bonnet of the Mulsanne Speed lies a newly re-engineered 6.75 litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine. Designed to boost acceleration, power and torque, it can propel the Mulsanne Speed to 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds (100 km/h in 4.9 seconds) and on to a phenomenal top speed of 190mph (305 km/h).
With its exquisite interior and the power it places at your fingertips, nothing brings luxury and performance together like the Flying Spur W12.
AGILITY THAT BELIES ITS SIZE
Building on the effortless performance that has always characterised the Mulsanne, the Mulsanne Speed offers even greater control and driver confidence, with revised Sport settings for the throttle, suspension and steering.
AS EFFICIENT AS IT IS AWE-INSPIRING
But it is in the field of efficiency where, it could be argued, the Mulsanne Speed truly changes the game. With 13% efficiency improvements, it delivers 50 miles (80km) more range from the same sized engine and fuel tank.
SPEED AND SOUND
The cabin of the Mulsanne Speed is an audiophile’s paradise. A 14-speaker audio system with Digital Signal Processing (DSP) can be optionally upgraded to the 2,200 watt Naim™ for Bentley premium audio system; it features 20 custom-made speakers, the world’s most powerful production amplifier and eight DSP modes. Together with the Mulsanne Speed’s acoustic glazing and sound proofing, it delivers an unparalleled audio experience.
Throughout the cabin, the observant driver will notice the occasional respectful nod to Bentley’s racing heritage, such as inverted dial needles. Hidden behind the traditionally crafted veneers, however, is the heart of the infotainment system – a hard drive powering the satellite navigation, data, telephone and Bluetooth connectivity.
THE MULLINER DRIVING SPECIFICATION
The Mulsanne is long-established as the pinnacle of Bentley craftsmanship. But even at this level, there is sometimes room to go further. That’s why the Mulsanne Speed features a collection of handcrafted details designed to add a sporting edge throughout the interior and exterior, alongside sports-tuned driver-selectable suspension and steering settings.
THE FINAL STEP
Drilled alloy sports foot pedals, a knurled sports gear lever, contrast stitching, Bentley embroidered emblems and the famous diamond quilted hides: together, they almost complete the picture. But as you step into the car, you are greeted with one final, important detail. The polished stainless steel tread plates, etched with the words: ‘Mulsanne’ and ‘Speed’.
On the road, the new Mulsanne Speed combines an imposing appearance with the substance to support its style, its name resoundingly proclaiming a new pinnacle. This is the most dynamic, most exquisite expression of the powerful luxury for which Bentley stands.
