The illustrious English automaker Bentley has just announced that the 2010 Mulsanne luxury limousine will go on sale in the U.S. Market next Fall for the mere sum of $285,000. Bentley’s new luxury car, which it is proclaiming as the “pinnacle” of luxury cars, made a resounding world debut earlier this year at the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours , an event that drew the attention of the most prominent automotive enthusiasts from around the world.
Names after the notorious 250 MPH back straight at the Circuit de la Sarthe, the Mulsanne is powered by a hand built fuel sipping V8, the 2011 Mulsanne will be offered with an assortment of options aimed at tailoring the new luxury sedan to even the pickiest of car consumers starting off with over 114 paint options, 21 shades for the carpeting, nine different wood veneers and as many as 24 kinds of leather hides to choose from for the interior. If those aren’t enough factory options Bentley’s bespoke service department will bend over backwards to exactly match a customer’s taste. With more standard leather and wood veneer than any other Bentley built in recent years, each example of the Mulsanne will take a minimum of nine weeks to put together. So send in your order early, because otherwise you might get stuck with someone else’s second hand dream car.
