Bentley Mulsanne Motoring Review
With a 0-100km/h sprint time of just 5.3 seconds and a top speed of 296km/h the 377kW Mulsanne has always offered thunderous levels of performance for an ultra-luxury saloon. Now, for customers seeking an even sportier look, feel and character to their Mulsanne, Bentley is introducing the Mulliner Driving Specification.
For the Mulliner Driving Specification, new 21-inch, light aluminium alloy wheels with race-derived, titanium fasteners, bright-finished rims and 265/40 ZR21 tyres, underscore its potent yet elegant stance while providing dynamic handling. Available in both painted and polished finishes, the two-piece wheels are exclusive to this model and are also compatible with Bentley’s optional self-levelling wheel badges.
The sportiest Mulsanne also has a Drive Dynamics Control system, which allows suspension and steering systems to be tuned to a preferred driving style. This includes, for the first time, a sporty setting. Operated by the rotary switch mounted next to the gearshift selector, the new settings provide enhanced grip, body control and steering accuracy without compromising ride comfort.
Inside the Mulsanne’s sumptuous cabin, Bentley’s styling team have created a bespoke, driver-focused look and feel. In keeping with the tradition of sporting Bentleys, the leather hide on the front and rear seats and door casings, feature an intricate diamond quilting pattern, complemented by an indented leather headlining.
In common with all Mulsannes, customers of the Mulliner Driving Specification have the opportunity to create a truly bespoke car from a palette of over 100 paint colours, a virtually limitless choice of unbleached premium quality veneers (with two marquetry options) and a selection of 22 leather hides.
