Bentley Mulsanne Review

The Bentley Mulsanne is a car that has been waiting 80 years to arrive. With the recession getting in the way but the Rolls-Royce coming for the save, this manufacturer can look forward to a new chapter in its growth under the guidance of CEO Wolfgang Durheimer. The model by itself, however, is here to prove two things: that it can provide a scope and freedom as a £200,000 car, and that it can provide a seamless performance along with its hand crafted luxury.

Pros

The Mulsanne’s current design features LEDs surrounding the headlights, which results in a dipped beam. Although the look pays respects to the 1950s Bentley S-Type, it still appears modern in design. The best way to enjoy the Mulsanne’s design is by going through the options list and seeing which parts can results in the best balance among interior finishes, wheel design, and colour, just to name a few. This vehicle is definitely at the fore of offering bespoke for luxury consumers.

Compared to the flagship saloon, the Mulsanne is below 5.6m in length, the wheels about 20 inches, and its length 350mm more than the Jaguar’s long-wheelbase XJ. It’s also 200mm longer than the Arnage but shares the same weight at 2585kg. The body itself is made of lightweight superformed aluminum and sits on top of a steel monocoque. The D-pillars features are rather complex and were made by coachbuilders.

The interior is successful in delivering the model’s mission statement of providing comfort along with the latest technology. Its elegant and rich style has not been paralleled by any other company and the interior in the Mulsanne toughens such a standard for its competitors. Below the eight-inch satellite navigation screen lies the iPod connector, which is hidden under a chrome-edged, leather-lined drawer. The leathers don’t just exude sophistication but also provide a warm ambience to the cabin.

The Mulsanne’s powertrain engine is an enhanced and revised version of the 6.75-litre twin-turbocharged V8. This unit can deliver power at either 752lb ft and 505 bhp. This engine is matted with the newest eight-speed automatic gearbox from ZF, which allows the Mulsanne to transition between four forward speeds. Quite a feat, considering that it has produced twice of that number in less than a decade. The unit’s bulk at 2746 kg is 160kg more than the claimed weight, but it’s still able to arrive at a 60mph sprint after just 5.7 seconds.

Cons

The Mulsanne also excels in its ride, enabling all around comfort on most road conditions. Unfortunately the chassis doesn’t have the capacity for the vehicle to absorb sharp shocks, which is expected of most limousines. When you go on Sport mode, there’s a tendency for the driver to push too hard. Yet at the same time it’s satisfying to see how fast you can go, assuring serious drivers of utmost satisfaction for the most part. A need for speed will definitely be delivered, but you still have to watch out for  imprecise steering as you head into corners and progress into another setting.

Bentley Mulsanne

                Bentley Motors Limited, a manufacturer of luxury automobiles headquartered in Chesire, United Kingdom, created a performance luxury car in the year 1980. This was called the Bentley Mulsanne, which came from the Mulsanne Straight, a company history of five victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the years 1924 until 1930.

                The Mulsanne was created as a successor of the full size luxury car called Bentley T2, and it was created as a four door sedan with an FR layout, or a front engine, rear wheel drive layout. The first version of the Mulsanne was produced in 1980 until 1992, and it was succeeded by the Bentley Turbo R and the Bentley Brooklands. It is related to other Rolls-Royce models such as the Silver Spirit and the Silver Spur in theat it has the Rolls-Royce V8 platform.

                Another version of the car as displayed at the Geneva Motor Show in 1982 is the Mulsanne Turbo, which was produced in 1985. Another version is the Mulsanne S in 1987, which does not have a turbocharger unlike the Mulsanne Turbo. Beginning in 2010, production of the Bentley Mulsanne was finally released in the United Kingdom. This car is assembled in Crewe, England, and it is a four door saloon or sedan classed as a luxury car.

                This new version was designed by the Belgian automobile designer, Dirk van Braeckel, and it replaced the Bentley Arnage in the market. It was displayed at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August 2009 and it was included in an auction in the same event.
