2011 Bentley Mulsanne

By luanpa in | November 2, 2010 | (3) Comments

The all-new 2011 Bentley Mulsanne has a little grudge against its former sibling Rolls-Royce. British automaker has a long history of artfully highlighting luxury. The price is around $285,000.

The design of 2011 Bentley Mulsanne is as much about scale as anything else, it is no exception. With an overall length and width just shy of 220 and 76 inches, this is a big beast of a car about a foot longer than a 2011 Audi A8L. It’s so grand that it completely shadows its forbearer by nearly seven inches. A good portion of that increase can be found in the wheelbase, which stretches 128.6 inches eclipsing Ye Olde Arnage by nearly half-a-foot.

But back, for a moment, to the Mulsanne’s design. As Bentley reps dutifully point out, the oddball front headlamps are a historical artifact of sorts, an aesthetic hat tip to the 1950s S-Type. We see the intent, but not quite the same grace. Regardless, those lights are nestled into some pretty innovative front fenders.

The body is produced in a new manufacturing facility at Bentley’s headquarters in Crewe where traditional metalworking skills, developed over six decades, are still used extensively during the nine-week build process. It is the very opposite of volume-production car-building… but the very epitome of Bentley.

The sporting character of the Bentley Mulsanne is reinforced by front wing vents and large diameter tailpipe finishers.
Bentley customers have a world of infinite choice when commissioning their cars. There are 114 paint colours in the range that include everything from unusual heritage colours, special satin and pearlescent finishes and duo-tone combinations. But the choice does not end there. Through the bespoke world of Bentley Mulliner, unique colours can exactly match a customer’s vision and taste.

A state-of-the-art 14-speaker audio system with Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and 6-CD autochanger is provided as standard while the Naim for Bentley premium audio system may be specified as an option. This forging of two British luxury brands provides customers with the world’s most powerful 2200 Watt in-car amplifier, eight dedicated DSP modes and 20 custom-made speakers, delivering an unparalleled sound quality.

A personalised keyless entry system allows multiple pre-programmed configurations and automatically sets radio stations, phone book, seat (including ventilation and massage modes, both front and rear), steering column and seatbelt settings and even the electrically operated rear-seat blinds for side and rear windows. As a world-first, the keyless system operates with the stainless steel door handles which incorporate touch points to initiate communication with the key for verification and entry. The Bentley Mulsanne also features keyless start, having a stop/start button on the centre console.
