Bentley to unveil a high-performance version of the Mulsanne at 2014 Paris Motor Show

Article by Andrew Christian, on July 1, 2014

It appears that Bentley’s halo model will receive a high-performance version and this new version could make its debut at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, Bentley boss Wolfgang Durheimer said to Auto Express that we will see Mulsanne developments at motor shows in 2014.

Bentley introduced last weekend at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed the Continental GT3-R and due to the positive feedback received, company insiders said that the manufacturer gain confidence and will offer more high-performance models.

The current Bentley Mulsanne is powered by a 6.75-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that generates 505 bhp and 752 lb-ft of torque, bolted to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Auto Express believes that the new performance variant of the Mulsanne will offer 550 bhp and it will be capable to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 5.0 seconds, which is quite impressive for a vehicle that weighs over two tonnes.

If the new Bentley Mulsanne will be revealed in October at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, we expect to reveal you more details soon, so stay tuned!
