What is it?
According to Bentley, the new Mulsanne ‘represents everything the British brand knows about building the world’s most powerful, most luxurious cars.’ That’s confidence for you, especially when the Rolls-Royce Phantom has arguably been the limo of choice for the last decade.
The Mulsanne is now a three-model range that includes the standard car, the Extended Wheelbase, and this, the most powerful and driver-orientated Speed. What’s new for 2016? Well, a restyle forward of the A-pillars delivers new wings, bonnet and a wider grille, which has wire mesh inserts overlaid with Pantheon-like vertical blades. The headlights are now adaptive LED units, while the rear lights and bumpers have also been tweaked.
There’s a much-needed upgrade to the infotainment system. It now features an 8.0in touchscreen, a 60GB hard drive, 4G wi-fi, and the option of Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink apps. Such modernity naturally cosies up next to the expected frippery. An eclectic array of exquisitely handcrafted leathers, veneers and metalwork are available for you to fashion your own unique automotive masterpiece.
