Bidding starts at $13,100 for impaled 2011 Bentley Mulsanne

Article by Christian A., on November 6, 2017

What is the worst thing that could happen to your car? Well, probably if it gets burned down into ashes, because that’s equivalent to throwing away a huge amount of money, as nothing will be left of it. The next worst thing is probably having a huge piece of metal stab through your car just like that in scenes of a Final Destination movie.

My next question is, are you thinking of getting yourself a Bentley Mulsanne? Well, if you are, there is actually a 2011 model that is currently up for grabs. But it is unlike any other Mulsanne that you have seen out there, because it comes with a special accessory.

We actually don’t want to imagine what happened to this particular car and if there were any casualties. But it seems like it had hit the guardrail, real hard.

Most of the damage could be found on the right side of the car, where a huge piece of metal went through the whole length of the luxury sedan - from the front part, through the back. The metal piece entered the cabin, even dislodging the rear seat. How wild is that?

It should be mentioned that none of the airbags went off. Now, you can make up your mind on whether that is a good or a bad thing. Apart from the dislodged seats and the huge hole that had been made, the Mulsanne comes complete will all of its original parts since the accident.

If you are confident enough to think that you could still restore this car, you could check it out at Copart where it is currently listed and is being auctioned to the highest bidder. It has a starting bid of $13,100, which really is a bargain. In fact, that is even cheaper than the optional iPad Picnic Tables that buyers could get. Do you think anyone would pay that amount for a wrecked Bentley Mulsanne? Want to bet how much the highest bidder would offer?

One could get a brand new 2011 Bentley Mulsanne for as much as $300,000. For a new one, expect it to have a pair of large prominent headlights, flanked by smaller ancillary lights. It has got a grille they call the “matrix”. There are lower air intakes that span the width of the car that features a matching mesh. Under the hood is a twin turbo 6.75 liter V8 engine that produces 506 horsepower and 752 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired with a ZF-sounded eight-speed automatic transmission. With that much torque, the Mulsanne can easily pull a 160-car freight train.
