Bentley Mulsanne Speed will be introduced at 2014 Paris Motor Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 19, 2014

Earlier this month we told you that Bentley will unveil a high-performance version of the Mulsanne in October, at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. Same sources confirmed today that the high-performance version of the flagship sedan will get the Speed badge, just like Continental GT models.

The upcoming Bentley Mulsanne Speed will keep its 6.75-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that will be boosted from 505 bhp to 550 bhp.

As a result, the new vehicle will be capable to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in under 5 seconds, while top speed will be around 200 mph or 320 km/h. Due to the power increase, Bentley will update the steering and chassis.

Although there is nothing official yet, Bentley CEO Wolfgang Durheimer told AutoExpress that we will see Mulsanne developments at motor shows in 2014.

The 2014 Paris Motor Show will be the perfect place to see the new vehicle but we also expect to see the new model in November at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. Pricing is expected to start at over $400,000.
