The Mulsanne, designed and engineered at Crewe, UK, is Bentley's new, modern flagship. At the Geneva Motor Show, Bentley will be announcing the car's standard and optional feature specifications. The Mulsanne's luxurious hand-crafted interior, reflecting traditional Bentley values, will offer the latest technologies. Following detailed customer feedback, the original tanning process has been re-instated to match the leather smell that is so evocative of vintage Bentleys. Under the long bonnet, lies the completely re-engineered 6¾-litre V8 engine, developing 512 PS (505 bhp/377 kW) with a torque of 1020 Nm / 752 lb/ft, delivered at a very low 1750 rev/min for effortless performance. The Mulsanne V8 also sees the introduction of two new control systems: cam phasing and variable displacement, a first for the ultra luxury sector, to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
