Bentley unveils the Mulsanne, set to replace the ageing Arnage in 2010
By Tom Richards

Replacing the ageing Arnage, the Mulsanne has just had its first airing at the Frankfurt motor show, and Bentley’s new flagship model is shaping up nicely.

The Mulsanne is powered by a revised version of Bentley’s 6.75-litre V8 engine, now putting out 505bhp and a staggering 752lb ft of torque from just 1800rpm.  An all-new 8-speed automatic has been drafted in to put all that power and twist down through the rear wheels.

While it won’t have the outright pace to match the ethanol-powered SuperSports, nobody could accuse the Mulsanne of being underpowered, as Bentley claims it’ll go on to around 180mph.

...

Bentley is aiming to sell around 700 Mulsannes a year when it goes on sale in 2010, with prices starting at around £200,000 – £10,000 more than the new Rolls-Royce Ghost.

Engine bay looks nice.

So do the Shrek ear mirrors.

But that's about all.

It's amazing how they can make headlights look like they have tears welling up in them.  Truly amazing materials technology.

Bentley ready to roll

Bosses have revealed that production of luxurious new Mulsanne will start in spring.

If you’ve got £220,000 to spare, this Bentley Mulsanne could be yours for the taking.

The firm has announced production of its new luxury saloon will begin in the spring, with the first customer cars due to be delivered in the summer.

Every Mulsanne will take nine weeks to make – largely because there is such a wide choice of colours and finishes. These comprise 114 paintjobs, 21 carpets, nine wood veneers and 24 interior leathers – which Bentley top brass claim will never lose their new car smell.

Standard kit will include the most powerful stereo ever fitted to a production model. It offers 2,200 Watts and 20 channels.

Can just bring to your attention this:

A black Mulsanne is parked in teh Trivett garage opposite my work. Saw it pull up yesterday and couldnt believe what i was witnessing. Elegant yet bold and somewhat phantom like appearance with its long wheelbase. Pity its not in the gold with chrome dish rims.

Phantoms and GT's are regular at that garage but never tire to see them.
