Drive Wire: A New Mulsanne Is on the Way
- Test Drives
There's a new Bentley Mulsanne on the way and as you'd expect, it's an absolute masterpiece. This magnificent beast is assembled by 144 craftsmen in an intricate, elegant industrial choreography that takes place over 400 hours. The result is a 6,000 lb car with presence unlike any other – the bodywork alone takes 90 hours to mold into one smooth shape, and the inside has more delicious leather and hard wood than an Edwardian sex club. The Mulsanne is still powered by the company's massive 6.75 liter V8 – that's how they say it, with the posh fraction – but that's enough to shuttle the ship to 60 in under 5 seconds. A new extended wheelbase edition joins the standard Mulsanne and the Mulsanne Speed this year, giving us a Bentley for all driving configurations. Expect to see the new Mulsanne family at the fast approaching Geneva Motor Show.
