Footnotes

  • "Like the turbocharged Mulsannes that have preceded it, this Bentley manages the beguiling trick of combining the atmosphere of a country house library with the ability to out-accelerate most sports cars, a feat all the more surprising in the light of its unmissable scale. Once sampled, the experience is a hard one to give up, though few will enjoy it given the Mulsanne's £225,900 price tag, a figure easily inflated once the bespoke options are explored." – Sunday Times.

    In 2010 Bentley Motors revived the evocative Mulsanne name for its new sports saloon. Last used by Bentley in the early 1990s, 'Mulsanne' referred to the eponymous corner on the Le Mans circuit, scene of the firm's five victories in pre-war days and its one modern-era win in 2003. It was resurrected as the model name for the replacement for the Arnage, Bentley's then flagship model. The new Mulsanne was unveiled at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in August 2009 and is historically significant as the first flagship model to be independently designed by Bentley Motors since the Rolls-Royce takeover of 1931. Deliveries to the UK began in the summer of 2010.

    Like the preceding Arnage, the Mulsanne is powered by a 6.75-litre V8 engine, albeit one totally redesigned and equipped with twin turbochargers, cylinder de-activation, and variable cam timing to meet the Euro 5 emissions regulations. Despite this requirement, the all-new engine comfortably matches its venerable predecessor, producing 505bhp at a mere 4,200rpm, with peak torque of 725lb/ft arriving at 1,750 revs. Power reaches the rear wheels via a ZF eight-speed automatic gearbox.

    According to Car magazine: "Driven quickly... the Mulsanne handles amazingly well for a car of such girth. The gearbox helps; it changes with unbelievable speed and smoothness at the redline despite the forces at work, and the choice of 'sport' mapping or full manual control via paddles behind the wheel means you can always summon the right amount of torque to keep the car balanced in corners..."

    Finished in brown metallic with cream leather interior, this magnificent Bentley Mulsanne has been owned from new by the current vendor and comes with full Bentley main dealer service history. The car has covered only 29,729 miles from new (less than 4,000 miles annually) and as one would expect of such a pampered example is presented in excellent condition throughout.
