Bentley Mulsanne Speed​​ Gets Sports Suspension And 537 HP
|   Wednesday, October 01, 2014
Bentley has just presented the sports version of the Mulsanne which will be launched at the Paris Motor Show. The Mulsanne Speed ​​has 537 hp, sport suspension, carbon fiber trim, and is the fastest limousine the Crewe brand has.

Bentley Mulsanne Speed ​​is the sportiest sedan ever launched by the British manufacturer. It will be presented at the Paris Motor Show and is a sports version of the Mulsanne sedan, promising a special driving experience that combines outstanding performance with luxury items that are a Bentley hallmark.


Despite the mass of 2685 kg and it length of 5.57 m, this goliath can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 305 km / h. The combined fuel consumption announced is 14.6 liters per 100 km, while the starting price in Europe, excluding tax, is 272,200 euro.

The V8 twin turbo engine displacing 6.7 liters delivers 537 hp at 4,200 rpm and torque of 1,100 Nm at 1,750 rpm. Compared to the standard version, the new unit is 13 percent more efficient, due to the new configuration of elements involved in the combustion process. The changes applied to the Mulsanne Speed's engine ​​will be applied in the Mulsanne standard range, which means that this in turn will be 13 percent more efficient than it was before.

The engine is mated to a ZF eight speed transmission capable of changing gears in 800 milliseconds and equipped with Sport driving mode that engages the rear wheels. Activating this mode strengthens the air suspension and adjusts the direction for more feedback and improves throttle response.

Paradoxically, compared to the sporting ambitions of the model, the transmission has been optimized to smoothly change gears. In terms of design, the Mulsanne Speed​​ version does not differ from the standard Mulsanne. Thus, the special colors and materials offered can be found in the catalog of the basic model.

At an aesthetic level, the differences between a standard Mulsanne and Mulsanne Speed ​​are few, but can be seen by the ardent fans of the brand. Everything starts from the new stainless steel front grille, which has a smoky finish, as well as the interiors of the headlights, taillights and front bezel. Standard rims are 21 inches, and Bentley offers special models that can be customized by Mulsanne Speed clients​​.

The standard equipment list of the Speed doesn't include the Mulliner Driving Specification. This optional feature includes diamond patterned upholstery for seats and door panels, special pedals and a different ceiling. Besides that, Bentley offers a generous choice of interior and exterior colors, along with numerous customization possibilities for the passenger compartment.

Bentley Motors chief, Wolfgang Dürheimer, thinks that the new Mulsanne Speed "is the car that defines Bentley, as a flagship for driving luxury performance. Our customers don't compromise and we've adopted the same approach in the design, engineering and crafting of our new flagship. The Mulsanne Speed is distinguished, calm and relaxing, but always with a connection to the road and relentless dynamic performance on demand. In this car, every journey becomes a drive."
