Bentley brought the most powerful version of its flagship sedan, the Mulsanne Speed at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. The new vehicle arrived powered by the 6.75-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that generates 537 hp (395 kW) and 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft) of torque. For those who don’t know, the 2015 Mulsanne Speed hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds), while top speed is 190 mph or 305 km/h.

Thanks to the recalibrated gearbox optimized for the higher wave of torque, the new Mulsanne Speed shows improved fuel efficiency and according to Bentley its range is extended by 50 miles or 80 km.

In addition, the gearbox offers a new ‘S’ mode, which gives the driver more control and maintains engine speed above 2,000 rpm. Meanwhile, CO2 emissions dropped 13 percent to 342 g/km.

The design is not new, but the Speed version of the Mulsanne arrives with dark tint finish on the stainless steel matrix grilles, distinctive dark tinted headlights and taillights as well as twin rifled exhaust tailpipes and steel Speed badging on the front fender and door tread plate areas.

Bentley will offer four new exterior colours for the 2015 Mulsanne Speed as well as on the standard version: Spectre, Candy Red, Camel and Marlin. The interior gets new Piano Black veneer panels that include handcrafted carbon fiber inlays and two-tone leather upholstery.

Offered as standard on the Mulsanne Speed, the Mulsanne Driver Specification offers diamond-quilted hide door panels, indented hide headlining, coined finish to the interior door handles, drilled alloy sports foot pedals and Bentley emblems embroidered on the headrests.
