New Bentley Mulsanne revealed at Pebble Beach
Bentley’s latest offering, the super luxurious Mulsanne has made its world debut at the Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance in California.
The Bentley Mulsanne was conceived and engineered at the company headquarters in Crewe, England and it will go into production in the factory’s new manufacturing facility in 2010.
The interior showcases a cabin rich in wood that features a new steering wheel, chrome-accented dials and modern switchgear.
The vehicle has been designed with a central headlight ringed by daytime-running-light LEDs which make the car unmistakable even at night.
Chairman and Chief Executive of Bentley Motors Dr. Franz-Josef Paefgen said engineers were set the challenge of creating a vehicle that would offer an exclusive driving experience and become the pinnacle of British luxury motoring.
“The result is a luxury grand tourer that sets new standards in terms of comfort, effortless performance and hand-crafted refinement,” he said.
The new model presents classic sporting cues distinctive to Bentley but expressed in a contemporary manner.
The Bentley Mulsanne will be available from the middle of next year but can be viewed at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show from September 15 to 27 for those who don’t want to wait.
