Bentley Mulsanne

The Bentley Mulsanne is a high end luxury limousine named after the back straight at LeMans. It was introduced as a 2011 model to replace the Bentley Brooklands and the Bentley Azure. The top of the line Mulsanne is powered by a 6.8 Liter twin turbo-charged V8 that is mated to an eight-speed automatic. This duo develops a maximum output of 506 HP and 752 lb-ft of torque. Coupe and cabrio versions of the Bentley Mulsanne are also in the works.

New face, revised technology, but the same engine

Launched in 2010 as a replacement for the Bentley Arnage, the Bentley Mulsanne has finally received its mid-cycle update. After months of speculation and camouflaged prototypes spotted as early as October 2015, we finally have confirmation that an updated sedan will arrive in dealerships in time for the 2017 model year.

Not surprisingly, Bentley didn’t meddle much with the Mulsanne’s design. The British brand is known for keeping a product around for more than a decade and throw in a few updates from time to time. This is exactly what happened with the Mulsanne, but to Bentley’s credit, the facelift brings more modifications to the exterior than expected. Maybe it’s all because Bentley has a new SUV in dealerships, which will most likely bite into Mulsanne and Flying Spur sales. With the Bentayga around to offer the same levels of luxury and a roomy interior, the Mulsanne needed a more comprehensive makeover in order to remain attractive.

Alongside the standard sedan, Bentley also unveiled the Extended Wheelbase and Speed versions of the Mulsanne. As the name suggests, the former comes with a longer wheelbase for enhanced rear-seat legroom, while the latter features a more powerful drivetrain among Speed-specific styling cues. All three cars will be showcased at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show between March 1st and 13th.
