Talented motoring journalist, Richard Barnett gives the fresh Bentley Mulsanne a run for its big money: 

“Editor Phil said I had up to 500 words to review the Bentley Mulsanne, however I think you could do the idea on the number of fingers on one hand: big, rapid, luxurious, stunning. as well as that will leaves the thumb out.
Word count aside, Bentley’s top-of-the-tree luxury saloon, which sits above the Continental Flying Spur, actively replicates those pre-war Bentleys that will built the maker’s reputation for mixing power which has a finely-appointed Internal. 

as well as within the Mulsanne the power certainly does the talking: mash that will heavily-sprung accelerator pedal to unleash the twin turbo’d, seven-litre V8’s power onto that will unsuspecting tarmac. 
Being rear-wheel drive the ‘sanne feels less friction-constrained than the four-wheel drive Continental. The seven-speed automatic can be almost seamless, however to be that will Great at modifications up as well as down the range would likely take away the fact that will despite its size, that will can be a car that will the owner should be driving, rather than reclining within the back keeping an eye on share values or who’s giving the best odds at Haydock Park that will afternoon.
In many ways the Mulsanne can be a dual-personality car: yes, the idea’s highly luxurious: however then again, the idea’s seriously rapid, however in a way that will lacks the urgency of its lower-priced Continental siblings.
However, along with that will seriously grin-inducing straight-line performance the Mulsanne can be very, very composed through the bends. Thanks to its 22-inch Dunlop Maxx treads grip can be unsurpassed as well as even on wet muddy country roads the idea simply sticks to the tarmac, leaving you to enjoy the well-composed, gently-weighted steering.
as well as while the performance can be Great, the stopping can be up to par as well. The brakes are nicely balanced as well as have a very Great, progressive feel that will adds to the driving pleasure.
Meanwhile for the passengers there’s plenty of room as well as plenty of fittings to make each as well as every journey an occasion. Acres of wood as well as leather of course recall the Bentleys of years gone by however the way the Internal can be put together can be first rate, the only different car getting near to the idea (different than the Continental) being Jaguar’s current XJ saloon.
as well as when the idea comes to the power game, a car’s appearance doesn’t have to contain the desperate cry of ‘look at me’. The Mulsanne can be B-I-G, as well as there’s no getting away by that will. however what’s pleasing can be that will its looks won’t date rapidly as well as within the same way the 1981-1996 Bentley Eight /Turbo R still looks great, in 10-15 years the current Mulsanne will too.
Successfully blending old-school Bentley traits with fresh technology, the Mulsanne can be King of the Castle in luxury saloons. Power, luxury, room as well as great looks. within the top-flight super saloon echelons no rapid four-door can best the Bentley….”
