The Bentley Mulsanne Speed is as classy and sophisticated as you would expect. Twin-rifled exhaust pipes and dark-tint LED tail lights distinguish the rear, and a bold upper grille and extensive lower grille characterise the front-end. Dark-tint Bi-Xenon headlights feature LED main-beam support functions, offering a powerful light source and ensuring the Mulsanne Speed always stands out. Elegant Bentley motifs that adorn the bonnet, the fender and the centre of each 21-inch Speed alloy wheel.
The opulence of the exterior is reflected in the cabin. A Burr Walnut wood veneer sets the tone. The leather-and-diamond-quilted upholstery features colour-coded stitching on the backrests and the door panels sport the same diamond motif. A rear centre armrest console controls both seating and air-conditioning and provides leather-lined storage space and a 12V socket and the 443-litre boot offers ample space for luggage. The Mulsanne Speed has many athletic qualities, including a knurled sports gear lever and alloy sports foot pedals.
The powerful 6.75-litre twin turbo-charged V8 engine delivers up to 530bhp, and a maximum torque of 1,100Nm at 1,750rpm. The Bentley Mulsanne Speed is built for absolute comfort and luxury but, as its name suggests, it is also designed for speed. You can accelerate from 0-100kph in just 4.8 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 300kph. For a car of the Mulsanne Speed’s size, handling is impressive.
While travelling in style and comfort, enjoy your favourite music played through a 14-speaker audio system that uses Digital Signal Processing. The cabin’s exemplary sound-proofing and acoustic glazing enhances the audio experience. DAB radio provides crystal-clear audio quality across an array of stations, and the vehicle’s hard drive features satellite navigation and data. Bluetooth connectivity enables you to make and receive calls hands-free and stay connected with the outside world.
