Apparently, we are going to be able to see the full production of the Bentley Flagship Mulsanne . Last month, they brought us a video illustrating how a Mulsanne gets its color and this month we get to see the luxury car get fitted for a new, powerful, and re-engineered 6¾ liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine. This engine has over 300 new or re-engineered parts created just for the Bentley Mulsanne engine including two new control systems: cam phasing and variable displacement. These two new systems allow for a reduction in fuel consumption (you save money!) and a reduction in CO2 emissions (go green!). The V8 engine can produce 505bhp with a torque of 1020Nm/752lb.-ft. at 1750rpm. The sprint from 0-60 can be made in 5.1 seconds. The complete engine build takes a total of 26 hours.
The video is three minutes and fifteen seconds long and you will feel every second tick by as the non-animated narrator explains the process. I would recommend watching this video without volume, but then you might not be able to follow what they are doing. It is a cool thing to witness if you can get over Mr. Personality’s lack of excitement while narrating the build of “the pinnacle of luxury British motoring that mixes hand-crafted refinement with engineering excellence”.
Hit the jump to watch the video.
