The Mulsanne is a driving experience at the very pinnacle of British motoring, mixing the very best of modern technology and engineering with the unique heritage of the marque.
Echoing the signature Bentley design cues of the past, it features a bold frontal design dominated by the traditional Bentley matrix grille and prominent headlamps.
The long bonnet, short front overhand and longer rear overhang help to convey a sense of dynamism and movement, which is reinforced by muscular haunches and sharply sculptured lines that flow gracefully from the front wings to the rear. It all hints at the phenomenal power and performance that are in reserve at all times.
“As a designer, it’s a rare event and a privilege to be asked to create a new grand Bentley – a contemporary expression of our brand. But to move forward, you must be true to your heritage. Character is everything in the quest to find a clean, pure Bentley look that feels authentic. Customers also told us they wanted a driver’s car, something powerful and elegant. So we combine classic Bentley shapes, details and proportions with a forward-looking design. When I gaze upon the car today, I’m struck by how it oozes emotion. It’s truly a work of art, made by individuals, for individuals.”
– DIRK VAN BRAECKEL, Director of Design at Bentley
The story of the new Bentley Mulsanne is inspired by W.O. Bentley’s crowning achievement – his 8-litre engine, a powertrain that transformed his vehicles from being rugged, sporting tourers into refined automobiles. While the Bentley Mulsanne pays respect to the past, it is also a thoroughly modern statement of luxury driving and grand touring from Crewe. At its heart, it is as much an engineering masterpiece as the 8-litre. And like its predecessor, it offers the world’s most exclusive driving experience.
