Bentley unveils a new flagship model at the Paris Motor Show today, positioned at the very pinnacle of automotive luxury and performance. The new Mulsanne Speed is the fastest ultra-luxury driving experience in the world. The Mulsanne Speed is tailored for the driver, with 537 PS (530 bhp / 395 kW), 1,100 Nm (811 lb.ft) and selectable sports suspension and steering on demand. The reengineered powertrain, featuring Bentley’s mighty 6¾-litre twin-turbo V8, propels the Mulsanne Speed to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds (0‑100 km/h in 4.9 seconds) and on to a top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h).
In modern Bentley tradition, the extra performance is matched by markedly improved efficiency; a 13% gain means a range extended by 50 miles (80 km).
The signature Mulsanne ultra-luxury sedan has been updated for 2015, to complement the launch of the performance-focused Mulsanne Speed. These include the same efficiency upgrades as the Mulsanne Speed and changes to gearbox callibration which promote an even more comfortable and refined driving experience.
New paint colours, hide and veneer options are also available for the Mulsanne range.
Joining the Mulsanne and Mulsanne Speed at the Show is Bentley’s powerful four door sedan – the Flying Spur – and two dynamic Grand Tourers, the Continental GT V8 S and the Continental GT Speed.
