Bentley Motors, a British luxury automaker, has unveiled its new luxury flagship the Mulsanne Speed at the 2014 Paris Motor Show recently.
The new variant to the ultra-luxury grand tourer is set to arrive in the Middle East in early 2015.
The new Mulsanne Speed is tailored for the driver, with 537 PS (530 bhp / 395 kW), 1,100 Nm (811 lb.ft) and selectable sports suspension and steering on demand.
The re-engineered powertrain, featuring Bentley’s mighty 6¾-litre twin-turbo V8, propels the Mulsanne Speed to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds (0 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds) and on to a top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h).
In modern Bentley tradition, the extra performance is matched by markedly improved efficiency, a 13 per cent gain means a range extended by 50 miles (80 km), the company said.
New and contemporary styling features define the Mulsanne Speed as a statement in quintessential British luxury. On-board technology and connectivity are discreetly integrated beneath the finest materials, created with unrivalled craftsmanship and exquisite handcrafted details.
Chairman and chief executive of Bentley Motors, Wolfgang Dürheimer, said: “The new Mulsanne Speed is the car that defines Bentley, as a flagship for driving luxury performance. Our customers don’t compromise, and we’ve adopted the same approach in the design, engineering and crafting of our new flagship. The Mulsanne Speed is distinguished, calm and relaxing, but always with a connection to the road and relentless dynamic performance on demand. In this car, every journey becomes a drive.”
