Bentley Mulsanne upgrades

23 January, 2013 | by Benedict Pather

British automakers Bentley have released a list of upgrades that will be available in their flagship sedan, the Mulsanne, ahead of its official debut at the upcoming 2013 Geneva Motor show. While the vehicle’s exterior still shouts “Luxobarge”, improvements worth noting are inside the car.

The entertainment system includes a pair of eight-inch LCD screens, DVD player, Bluetooth headphones, remote control and on-board Wi-Fi router. It just won’t be a Mulsanne without automatic curtains for the side and rear windows.

The clincher is that customers can order a six-piece, handmade luggage set to complement their car. Buy the luggage, get the car?

The boys at Bentley however failed to announce any engine upgrades and have purposefully left us waiting till March to find out more.

For now we know it has the same 6.75-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine as its predecessor. But seeing as how you’ll probably want to spend more time being chauffeured than behind the wheel, does that really matter?

Engine Specifications:

KW 377

Torque 531

0 – 100k in 5.3

Top Speed 296 km/h

Price TBC but should cost somewhere around the 2013 models R5.7m price tag.
