Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase

The Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase is the most comfortable and luxurious car in the Mulsanne range. Designed for customers with a preference for being driven, it offers a first-class air-travel experience on the road. With an extra 250mm of legroom in the rear and sumptuous, light-filled cabin space, it is very much a car for those who demand more time and space to think. The Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase is a new benchmark in comfort and refinement.

Significantly increased legroom

The extension of the Mulsanne’s wheelbase (from 3,266 mm up to 3,516 mm) is entirely to the benefit of rear-seat passenger. This significant increase in legroom and interior space makes it the most generously proportioned luxury limousine in the world.

Interior
To make the best use of the additional rear legroom, Bentley has developed optional airline-style electronic leg rests, seamlessly integrated into the bases of the two rear seats. These extend out and pivot, giving the choice between upright, relaxed and reclined seating positions.

Sunroof

A large-format sunroof is standard on Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase.  It floods the rear cabin with light and can be controlled by passengers and driver. The tilting glass pane, which features an Alcantara sunblind, reinforces the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase’s focus on the rear cabin occupants.

Rear seat luxury

A beautifully designed optional centre console, crafted from the finest veneer, metal, glass and leather, can divide the rear seats. For those wishing to work on the move, rear seats can also be specified with folding picnic tables. Electric privacy curtains are fitted as standard and can be tailored with either a black or ivory coloured lining.

Optional Duotone

The imposing front of the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase is dominated by a radiator shell with bright stainless steel vertical vanes. The one-piece bumper, bonnet and fenders integrate seamlessly to create a sense of width and presence. These features flow down to the lower signature grille section flanked by ‘B’ wing vents. A choice of Duo-tone paintwork can add a personal finishing touch.

Seamless Acceleration with Comfort

As well as being the most comfortable and luxurious car in the world, the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase also offers a sublime driving experience.

Beneath Mulsanne’s bonnet lies a 6¾ litre, twin turbocharged V8 engine that produces 505 bhp (377 kW / 512 PS) at 4,200 rpm and up to 1,020 Nm (752 Ib.ft) of torque at 1,750 rpm. This immense power takes it from 0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds (0-100 km/h in 5.5 seconds), and on to a top speed of 184 mph (296 km/h). The 8-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive provide imperceptible gearshifts and seamless acceleration to deliver a truly spirited ride. Cutting-edge engine technology delivers competitive emissions (C02 of 342g/km) and (18.8 mpg) fuel economy.
