Bentley is introducing the Mulsanne Speed, a higher performance edition of the luxury sedan which comes with an uprated V8 6.75-liter engine outputting no less than 537 PS (395 kW) & 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft) of torque. The vehicle needs just 4.9 seconds to run the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint and keeps on going until it reaches a top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h). Power is sent to the wheels through an updated eight-speed automatic transmission featuring an S mode which grants a faster engine response. The motor benefits from cylinder deactivation and can run only on four cylinders, reducing emissions from 393 g/km to 342 g/km.
The Bentley Mulsanne Speed rides on 21-inch alloy wheels which can have a polished, dark or painted finish. Customers can choose from four fresh colors: Camel, Candy Red, Spectre and Marlin while a dark tint has been applied onto the lower bumper grille, radiator grille and on the wing vents. Inside the cabin there are new veneers, colors and trims, while the seats and door panels have a diamond quilt configuration. Also inside are bespoke drilled pedals and indented headlining.
Deliveries of the Bentley Mulsanne Speed will commence this winter for those willing to pay the starting price of 315,000 euros.
