Facelifted product of Bentley’s flagship saloon is usually being readied for 2017; brand-new long-wheelbase variant also spotted
The 2017 Bentley Mulsanne has been spotted testing with minimal disguise in both standard as well as long-wheelbase variants.
The spy shots suggest the styling tweaks for the facelifted car will be subtle, having a revised grille as well as air intakes. Black cladding partially obscures the brand-new LED headlights, while the redesigned fascia creates a smoother overall shape, with particular focus paid to the front wings.
The bluff rear of the Mulsanne’s bootlid has also been made smoother, with minimal adjustments to the rear lights as well as bumper. The most noticeable alterations for the long-wheelbase product are the elongated rear doors as well as extended glasshouse.
The twin-turbocharged 6.75-litre V8 engine, which was completely refreshed for the Mulsanne when of which was launched in 2010, is usually likely to remain unchanged, with 505bhp as well as 752lb ft of torque. Bentley remains tight-lipped on details about the facelift, although having a hybrid Bentayga SUV already confirmed for production, a hybrid powertrain is usually likely to appear inside Mulsanne too, as previewed in 2014 inside Mulsanne-based Bentley Hybrid Concept.
The facelifted Mulsanne range is usually tipped to be followed by revised versions of the Brooklands coupé as well as Azure convertible, along having a production product of the Bentley Grand Convertible concept revealed at last year’s Los Angeles motor show.
