Bentley Mulsanne

The 2013 Bentley Mulsanne is a one of a kind combination of 3 important qualities in a car: particularly designed sportiness, elegance and solidity. The new model of Bentley reminds us of the Bentley S -Type that was designed in the 1950s. Its frontal design is bold and extremely spectacular, dominated by the classic Bentley matrix grille. Its classic round shaped inner headlamps have chrome surrounds, bordered by two outboard lamp clusters of a smaller size, all using state of the art lighting technology. You can opt for the emblematic “Flying B” radiator mascot that can be retracted.

The 2013 Bentley Mulsanne has been updated from its previous version with different interior modifications, extra options packages that provide the back seats with the quality of being more coddling than they used to be. The outstandingly designed wheels of 20 inches (and 21 inches, upon your choice) emphasize the sporting and powerful posture of the Mulsanne.

The engine of the car is as powerful and imposing as the name Bentley: a V8 engine of 6.75 liter which is totally improved for more power and for reduced fuel consumption. The pushrod mill has two new control systems, as well. These are: cam phasing and an adjustable displacement setup (a premiere for the ultra-luxurious models) that can successfully turn the V8 engine into a four-cylinder engine in order to consume less fuel during traveling conditions of light throttle.

The big engine is able to produce an extraordinary 505 horsepower and 752 lb-ft of torque. The eight-speed automatic transmission matches the powerful engine and can be controlled with paddle shifters mounted to the steering wheel. In spite of the measures taken to save fuel, the firepower and mass of the Bentley cannot mislead physics, and the car still uses 11 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway. The air suspension system of the Bentley Mulsanne features Continuous Damping Control (CDC) which offers the driver and passengers a comfortable and sophisticated cruise at lower speeds; however, it can reduce automatically the height of the ride at high speeds, so that it reduces the lift and increases the aerodynamic stability.

The 2013 Bentley Mulsanne uses a custom-made entry system that does not require a key (keyless) and permits many pre-programmed settings and automatically sets phone book, radio stations, seatbelt settings, seat (as well as massage modes and ventilation, front and rear, alike), steering column and even the rear-seat blinds that are operated electrically for windows on the sides and in the back.

If you are interested in purchasing a Bentley Mulsanne, you should take into account that its base retail price (MSRP) is of $296,000.
