The Geneva Motor Show offers quite a treat for most car lovers, and Bentley will not disappoint you this time for sure. The luxury car maker will launch a “highly distinctive and sporting interpretation” of the Mulsanne. The new sportier Mulsanne Mulliner Driving Specification will sport 21-inch alloy wheels, Bentley Flying ‘B’ wing vents and Diamond Quilted leather trimmed cabin with driver-selectable, sports-tuned suspension and steering, and a 6.75 litre V8 engine. The car can hit 0-60 mph in 5.1 seconds with a top speed of 184 mph. It also features the Drive Dynamics Control system with a ‘Sport’ setting for a zippier and smoother driving experience.
On the inside, the car seats and door casings sport a leather hide with an “intricate Diamond Quilting pattern, complemented by an indented leather headlining”. The cabin sports a ‘knurled’ or ‘coined’ surface finish with cool-metal interior door handles, ‘Organ Stop’ air ventilation controls and gear lever for a tactile driving experience along with leather gear lever sporting Baseball-style cross stitch.
You can further opt for two new luxury features, including a large tilt-opening, tinted glass sunroof and an electrically operated bottle cooler that comes with hand-blown and hand-cut lead crystal champagne flutes designed by David Redman. You can pick from “a palette of over 100 paint colors”, premium quality veneers finishes and as many as 22 leather hides options.
