Exterior Design

Advanced and elegant in equal measure.

The Bentley Mulsanne’s design is a unique fusion of sportiness, coach-built elegance and solidity. Drawing on the great Bentleys of the past, the Mulsanne features a bold frontal design dominated by the traditional Bentley matrix grille and prominent, round inner headlamps with chrome surrounds. For added distinction the chrome bezels are embossed with the Bentley name.

To create as refined a car as the Bentley Mulsanne in the 21st century requires a blend of technology and craftsmanship that can only be found at a marque like Bentley. The car’s elegant form is created by experienced coach-builders hand-brazing different thicknesses of steel to create a seamless flush fit, alongside an advanced process known as Superforming, in which aluminium panels are heated to 500˚ C and then forced into shape using air pressure.

Racing is also clearly in the Mulsanne’s bloodline with classic sporting proportions distinctly evident. The long bonnet, short front overhang and longer rear overhang help to convey a sense of dynamism and movement, reinforced by muscular haunches and sharply sculpted lines that flow gracefully from the front wings to the rear.
