2015 Bentley Mulsanne Speed review
Source : 2015 Bentley Mulsanne Speed review
Mulsanne gets the Speed treatment although doesn’t lose what’s traditionally been brilliant about Bentleys from the process Despite being Bentley’s newest flagship motor, the Mulsanne Speed is actually probably closer to the original vision of WO Bentley than any of the last half-century. Think of vintage Bentleys along with you think of his cars pounding around Le Mans, exhausts thundering, impossibly raffish drivers smiling wolfishly beneath flying hats along with goggles. although for his road cars, Bentley would certainly never have sacrificed comfort or mechanical refinement for raw speed. the item was the blend in which mattered, along with so the item is actually today.In typical Bentley form, extensive modifications have been made to the Mulsanne’s vast V8 engine along with ZF transmission for apparently rather modest gains: a 25bhp power hike in which has to been seen from the context of a car weighing almost 2.7 tonnes, along with an 8% increase in torque, leading to a 0.4sec reduction from the 0-62mph time along which has a 6mph rise in top speed. The standard car’s adaptive damping along with steering mapping right now allow a much wide range of driver-selectable settings.Visually, you can tell a Speed coming from a standard Mulsanne coming from the darker tinting of the grille along with lights at both front along with rear, while inside there is actually the diamond quilting on the seats Bentley has often set aside for its most sporting designs.Bentley logos are embossed on every seat along with there’s even aluminium alloy pedals, before you go crazy with the options along with kit the auto out with the carbonfibre door cappings in which look as out on place here as would certainly a walnut dash on a McLaren.
