The Bentley’s flagship Mulsanne just got more powerful than before.
As reported, the sedan embellished with 6.75 liter V8 engine, power output is enhanced by 25 more horses at 530 bhp. And 1,100 Nm of meaty torque clocks the punch of 0 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds with top speed of 305 km/h. They say the fuel efficiency now promotes 13% of more savings. A validation done to the gearbox, which by the means of a new “S” mode tips the engine to stay above 2,000rpm always letting turbochargers perform their best. In fact, the cylinder deactivation system clogs down the engine from V8 to V4 for a lighter ride like a one in the bumper to bumper traffics, inner city roads etc. The ‘Sport’ suspension setting chosen will led the car to stiffen air-suspension all around and directs the steering for a better response. To cater the personal taste of driver, which at times can be the owners too, Bentley offered Custom setting option for flickering between the settings of engine, steering and chassis and result with their unique combinations.
On the cosmetic front, Greek-temple of Bentley grille is tinted black along with front air dam and intakes. The head and tail lamps both are adorned with that tinting attitude, says the official press release. The 21-inch alloy wheels briefs it further.
Inside the cabin, lays the diamond quilted leather for the most of sections, while the Bentley emblem is embroidered on all seats. For the personalization a new technical veneer option is available with handcrafted carbon fiber inlays. Four color options are rolled out on sales floor: spectre black, candy red, camel and marlin blue.
