Bentley just announced a new version of their flagship Mulsanne luxury sedan and its torquey, incredibly fast, and eats Phantoms for breakfast. The Mulsanne Speed will become the flagship of the Bentley lineup and will be powered by their 6¾ twin-turbo V8.
That engine will take the Mulsanne Speed from 0-60 in 4.8 seconds and will hit a top speed 190 miles per hour. All that speed comes from 530 horsepower and a MASSIVE 811 lb-ft of torque. All that brawn is quite efficient as well, the engine features a cylinder deactivation system that transitions from eight to four cylinders and back to warp speed when you need it. That is coupled with a new sport suspension mode when you want to have a little fun around the corners and of course, a comfort mode is available when you just want to float through traffic. A variety of exterior enhancements are exclusive the Speed edition which include a dark tint finish to Bentley's signature matrix grilles, headlamps, and rear lights, rifled exhausts, and a comprehensive interior spec that includes everything from diamond-quilted door panels and a 2,200 watt Naim audio system.
