Back in August Bentley unveiled the their new flagship luxury sedan, the Mulsanne at the world’s greatest classic car show, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Now the high end English coach builder caters to a group of clientele where even excess is never enough. So in an attempt to one up the fixed roof Mulsanne, rumors are flying around that W.O.’s car company is working on a drop head version that will offer the same level of luxury as the hardtop coupe except with a much more glamorous open air driving experience.
The new Bentley Mulsane is powered by a 6¾ Liter V8 that develops a maximum output of 505 HP while at the same time producing a very broad torque curve that peaks at 752 lb-ft of thrusting force. According to Bentley, the new coupe and cabrio versions of the Mulsanne will replace the outdated Bentley Brookland coupe and Azure convertible, two models that have long exceeded their respective life spans. Not to mention that a Bentley Mulsanne convertible would be the perfect vehicle to take on the other drop top super duper luxury coupe, the Rolls Royce Phantom drophead coupe .
