The Bentley Mulsanne was unveiled at the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and launched in the United States for the 2010 model year. Developed as a competitor to the Rolls-Royce Ghost , the Mulsanne revived a nameplate previously used between 1980 and 1992 and replaced the Bentley Arnage . The Mulsanne remained unchanged since its introduction, with only an equipment update in 2013 and a few special-edition models keeping the luxury sedan somewhat fresh until 2014.
For 2015, the Mulsanne gains its first true facelift in five years, one that brings upgrades in the engine department as well. The venerable, 6.75-liter, V-8 mill is in for a hefty performance bump, while a re-tuned chassis comes to improve handling and responsiveness. A hotter version of the Mulsanne that takes inspiration from the Bentley GT3-R is also in the books, but the Brits are still keeping all the important details in the vault.
