Bentley Mulsanne named ‘Best Luxury Car’ at Telegraph Motoring awards, UK
Winners decided by British public via Telegraph Motoring online poll
Bentley’s pinnacle flagship, the Mulsanne luxury sedan, has been honoured with the title ‘Best Luxury Car’ at the prestigious UK Telegraph Motoring Awards. Meanwhile, the iconic Bentley Continental GT and Flying Spur luxury sedan were awarded runners-up in a luxury category dominated by Bentley. The results were decided by members of the public who voted for their favourite cars via the Telegraph Motoring website.
Kevin Rose, Bentley Member of the Board for Sales, Marketing and Aftersales commented:
“Bentley is the most successful luxury car brand in the world, and our sales have been growing fast both in the UK and globally. It is particularly rewarding to be honoured by the British public in our home market, so it is with real pride that we accept this award.
“Every Bentley is handcrafted by our skilled and dedicated team in Crewe, which makes each car a true luxury possession. On behalf of Bentley Motors and our 3,700 colleagues, I would like to say a big thank you to everyone that voted for us.”
The Bentley Mulsanne luxury sedan is the British company’s flagship model, named after the famous corner at the Le Mans 24 hour race, where the company achieved an impressive six wins. Powered by Bentley’s legendary 6.75 litre twin turbo V8, the 505 bhp Mulsanne can complete the 0-60 mph sprint in just 5.1 seconds, and go on to a top speed of 184 mph.
In addition, the Mulsanne offers driver and passengers alike a uniquely stylish, refined and luxurious interior space. Striking wood veneers are paired with the finest hand-stitched leather, meaning each Mulsanne interior takes Bentley’s craftsmen and women over 120 hours to complete. To enhance the cabin experience even further, Mulsanne owners can specify their car with a refrigerated bottle cooler behind the rear armrest – complete with bespoke designed crystal champagne flutes – luxurious deep pile lambswool carpets, or with a comprehensive rear seat entertainment suite, which features a Wifi hotspot and iPads integrated within the picnic tables.
Bentley is marking its 95th anniversary in the UK by unveiling the British exclusive ‘Mulsanne 95', a striking special edition of this pinnacle sedan. Only 15 examples will be hand crafted by Bentley’s Mulliner division in Crewe and all are reserved for customers in the United Kingdom. Their British-inspired colours, as well as a unique wood veneer and range of design cues, all emphasise the exclusive nature of the Mulsanne. Read more about the Mulsanne 95 by clicking here.
