The Mulsanne Range

Created for visionaries with the power to turn their ideas into reality, the Bentley Mulsanne is the flagship model of the Bentley range. The world’s finest handmade car represents the ultimate combination of both luxury and performance. The range offers a choice of three remarkable vehicles: the Mulsanne, the Mulsanne Speed for more dynamic driving and, for those who prefer to travel in the back with extra legroom and comfort, the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase.

Design

The Ultimate Statement

The Mulsanne range is the ultimate statement of Bentley’s innovation, craft skills and automotive artistry. The design language captures the essence of the marque. Inside and out, you’ll find artisanship of the highest order.

Exterior
The Mulsanne range has a formidable road presence courtesy of its crisp, sharp lines and the sweeping curves of the superformed aluminium bodywork, instantly recognisable as a modern interpretation of classic Bentley design. One-piece front bumper, grilles, bonnet and fenders create a wide confident stance. An eye-catching radiator shell features bright stainless steel vertical grille vanes. Flush fitting, all-LED front headlamp clusters and a selection of 21” wheel options lend a technical edge to the Mulsanne’s elegance. The tail lamps reflect the Bentley ‘B’ design and complement the brightware on the ‘B’ wing vents and the polished stainless steel exhaust tailpipes.

Interior

The Mulsanne offers the most refined automotive interiors in the world, where drive time becomes time to think. Only the finest hides and most exquisite veneers are used throughout the cabin. A glance also reveals an environment rich with possibilities for personalisation.

Front and rear seats, door trim, armrests and switches are a contemporary take on classic Bentley design. It takes more than 150 hours to create the Mulsanne’s sumptuous leather interior. Seats are upholstered with traditionally tanned, soft-touch hides in a palette of 24 exquisite colours to give unrivalled comfort and the characteristic leather aroma. A fully colour-matched interior is counter-pointed by polished-steel brightware, knurled controls and precision-cut, chrome-finish fittings. These include bullseye air vents with trademark, traditional organ stop controls. These heritage cues and beautifully refined mechanisms are a delight to use on every journey, long or short. Ambient lighting can also be adjusted to reflect your mood.

Veneers

Hand-finished, unbleached and book-matched wood veneers form pure, elegant surfaces throughout the cabin. Ethically-sourced, every veneer is mirror-matched. Each sheet is first treated for 72 hours, then precisely fitted opposite another piece cut from the same part of the same tree. The result is a perfectly symmetrical cabin, right down to the perfectly-matched natural ‘bloom’ of the wood grain. Lacquering and sanding each piece at least five times then achieves a deep ‘liquid’ finish. Three new veneers have been added to the range: Liquid Amber, Dark Stained Madrona and rich Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus. New exterior paint colours include the fashionable Rose Gold and the golden hue of Julep.

A luxurious place to be

The front seats feature 14-way electrical adjustment with an easy entry and exit movement, while the back seats offer 8-way adjustment. All include lumbar support, two memory positions and adjustable heating for the ultimate in comfort, wherever you sit in the car. Deep pile flat-cut carpets are handcrafted specifically for your car – rather than being mass manufactured. The air-conditioning system can be controlled from any seat in the car, and features four separate zones, which allow each occupant to adjust temperature and fan speeds to suit them.

Performance

870_BEN_Muls_my16_LOC_10_Rr34_v5a_R 1920x670.jpg

Power with true potential

The Mulsanne is more than simply the world’s most luxurious car, it also delivers effortless performance and power. It offers exhilaration with the kind of confidence and control that only a Bentley can deliver. At the same time, the hand-built engine also delivers its limitless power with perhaps surprising levels of efficiency and economy.

Engine
The Mulsanne features a unique 6¾ litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine. The 8-speed automatic transmission with rear-wheel drive provides imperceptible gear changes and seamless acceleration, while efficiently managing fuel economy and CO2 emissions. As a result, the Mulsanne produces levels of power and torque practically unheard of in a car of this size. Assembled by hand at the Bentley factory in Crewe, each unit sports a nameplate bearing the name and signature of the engineer responsible for hand-building it.

Drive dynamics control

A Drive Dynamics Control system is operated by a rotary switch mounted beside the gearshift selector. Choose from three standard driving settings – Bentley, Comfort and Sport, which offer precise calibrations of suspension and steering systems. The Bentley setting gives the finest balance of comfort and dynamics for this exceptional car. Whilst the Sports setting will lower ride height, increasing grip, body control and the overall sense of connection to the road, without compromising on ride comfort. A fourth setting, Custom, allows you to decide on your own preferred settings.

Suspension and transmission

The Mulsanne’s 8-speed automatic transmission ensures highly responsive acceleration with indiscernible gear changes. The steering-wheel-mounted paddleshift controls allow manual gear changing for a more engaging driving experience. The air spring suspension is managed electronically by the Continuous Damping Control system to adjust ride height, and improve low-speed ride quality and bump absorption. Together with speed-sensitive power steering these features combine to deliver the Mulsanne’s smoothly dynamic driving experience.

Technology

Every Mulsanne is discreetly equipped with a sophisticated, cutting-edge suite of technologies, including a touchscreen infotainment system.

This includes intuitive driver assistance systems, innovative safety features and connectivity that allows effortless work or play from within the Mulsanne’s sublime cabin space.

Infotainment system

The Mulsanne’s infotainment system has an 8” touch screen control that lets you access the car’s state-of-the-art information, entertainment and vehicle systems with ease. In-car WiFi with 4G-connectivity and Google integration, keep you connected to online services such as music stores, all Google Play apps for entertainment, video calls, productivity apps and much more.

Passengers can explore a wide repertoire of infotainment options through two 10.2” entertainment tablets housed in the front seatbacks. These tablets are convenient and mobile (for use inside and away from the car) giving access to a world of TV, video entertainment, games, video calling and media streaming via Bluetooth headphones.

Driver Safety Features

Much of the Mulsanne’s technology and active safety functionality works quietly in the background, imperceptible to you and your passengers. The Advanced Automatic Stability Control includes a series of collision mitigation features – which work to avoid or lessen the effects of an impact. For example, if the car detects a potential hazard ahead, it warns the driver. Immediately, the brakes are prepared and the airbags are primed for firing. Should the driver ignore the warnings, the car will brake.  Adaptive Cruise Control also ensures your Mulsanne can keep a safe distance from the car in front. Should the traffic stop, your car will too, only moving forward automatically when it’s safe to do so. The Blind Spot Warning system comes as standard, as does the Rear View Camera for parking assistance.

All-LED headlamps

Four all-LED headlamps feature advanced adaptive technology for unparalleled night vision, with beam patterns that automatically adjust to suit driving conditions. Built-in light sensors and GPS integration allow a choice of four different light modes. Each is adjusted for town, country or motorway driving, or for situations that simply require full-beam illumination.

Effortless connectivity when it’s needed

The Mulsanne’s in-car WiFi hotspot provides 4G connectivity, while Bluetooth® can be used to access contacts, phone calls or music on any smartphone or tablet – devices that can be safely stored out of sight during journeys in a purpose-built, hide-lined drawer. The My Bentley app adds extra functionality such as enabling your Mulsanne to navigate to a location in a photograph on your phone.

The Mulsanne can also be specified with the world’s most powerful automotive audio system – Naim™ for Bentley Premium Audio. This bespoke on-board audio system features 20 custom-made speakers, 20 channels, a 2,200-watt amplifier and super tweeters for an unparalleled audio experience.

Personalisation

Exclusively yours

True luxury also lies in being able to express your own vision. One way of doing this is to personalise your Mulsanne – to make it exclusively yours. And with over 100 colours – including eleven blacks – and even more options when the unlimited duo-tone combinations are considered, the Mulsanne offers a remarkable choice of exterior colours.

Make it yours

The process of personalisation begins with a selection from the palette of standard and special paint colours. Complement this with either one or two hide colours from a choice of 24, to harmonise your colour scheme. And this is only the beginning. From fine details, such as the finish on the steering wheel to foot pedals, almost every visible feature can be customised to your exact specification. As well as 11 exquisite veneers and eight wheel designs, you can choose from a selection of 21 carpet colours to match your interior hide as standard, and pick from 22 seat belt colours, also as standard.

Each part of every Mulsanne is crafted from the finest materials. The interior leatherwork you choose is made from the highest quality hides, tanned to provide a flawless finish. Our leather craftsmen and women’s attention to detail is second to none – the steering wheel cover alone takes 15 hours to hand stitch, with options for contrast-stitching and cross-stitching preferences.

You can go further still and make your Mulsanne unique with a choice of specification packages, option choices and via the unrivalled expertise of Mulliner – Bentley’s personal commissioning department.

Bottle coolers

Mulliner has created three optional bottle coolers, each designed exclusively for the Mulsanne to reflect Bentley’s benchmark craftsmanship. One can hold two water bottles and crystal tumbler-style glasses; another can hold champagne bottles and elegant flutes. The third can house spirit bottles, crystal glasses and a Bentley hip flask. Nestled between the back seats with the refrigeration system hidden in the boot, they provide the perfect solution for refreshment on the move. And, as with all Bentley bottle coolers, the design of the refrigeration system means that, despite its location behind the back seat, the boot space is not compromised.

Mulliner

Mulliner can also make your Mulsanne truly unique. Paintwork and leather hides can be matched to any colour you wish. Mulliner can even fashion original veneers created from a tree on your property or personal features designed around your individual passions, such as secure foldaway jewellery trays or cigar humidors.

Marquetry

Mulliner’s remarkable craftsmanship is demonstrated in the art of marquetry. This striking decorative flourish to the veneer of a Bentley’s dashboard takes years of skill and dedication to master. These veneers can be applied in many layers and in a variety of illuminating hues, incorporating wood from several different species of tree.
