The ongoing recession isn’t going to stop Bentley Motors Ltd. from developing more luxurious vehicles to add to its line-up. We have proof of that fact as yesterday the auto maker unveiled its new brand carrier Mulsanne pronounced as mull-sahn. Maybe it really is that luxurious because it comes with an insane price tag — almost $300,000! The unveiling was done at the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
Bentley’s creation of the Mulsanne is not just a whim. This new grand tourer will replace will take the place of the soon-to-be-discontinued Arnage, which is considered to be the height of the ultra-luxury section. This car seems to be very luxurious indeed because according to reports, it will take about 40 hours just to complete its interior woodwork.
At this time, Bentley hasn’t revealed much of the specifications regarding the Mulsanne. But the company did say that it will be available in the mid-part of 2010. But based on the pictures released, Bentley’s new Mulsanne has huge round headlamps with smaller auxiliary lights beside them. The huge grille looks very capable of drawing cool air for keeping the engine temperature even. The body is also filled with chrome detailing that adds to its appeal. The exterior look and design of the Mulsanne is impressive. We just hope the interior will be faultless as well.
