Designed for those who accept only the best in travel, the new Bentley Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase offers the kind of luxury you would expect to find in a private jet. Tailored painstakingly to every individual, nothing is too much for Bentley’s team of skilled craftsmen.
Featuring the iconic ‘B’ signature matrix elements, both on the interior and exterior, the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase is exclusive down to a T. But this car doesn’t just look the part, it performs; a 6.75-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine crouches ready to pounce beneath the bonnet, allowing a top speed of 184mph, an impressive feat given that no extra power is needed to compensate for the longer body.
Two reclining airline style seats are fitted into the extra 10 inches of space in the rear cabin, complete with electric curtains in the rear windows, and an optional bottle cooler complete with three bespoke champagne flutes.
A car with as much attention to detail as the Bentley Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase doesn’t skimp when it comes to safety, and indeed, there are many features included to give you peace of mind. 400mm brake discs, 370mm at the rear, give the car unrivalled stopping power no matter how fast it’s going, which ensures the utmost safety even at the high speeds the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase reaches effortlessly.
New full LED headlights offer four beam patterns, vehicle speed sensing and GPS integration to ensure perfect illumination in any condition, so you will glide through anything without a scratch. Technological expertise makes its mark in the safety features too, boasting Bentley’s Blind Spot Warning System, which gives visual warnings in the side mirrors if the sensors detect anything in the car’s blind spots, along with Advanced Automatic Stability Control (ASC) to give only the best handling in any condition the roads or weather throw at it. .
To some, a longer vehicle means sacrifices to the elegance of the design, but thanks to a meticulously sculpted silhouette the Bentley Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase looks every bit as refined as its Mulsanne siblings.
The classic design remains the template for the iconic class synonymous with the Bentley name, with a wide front grille sitting in front of the familiar matrix. Highly defined character lines sweep along the smooth body of the car, highlighting its muscular power and lending a quiet grace to its heavy stance.
Inside, only the finest materials have gone into creating the ultimate sumptuous experience. Nearly everything that can be seen within the rear cabin is yours to customise, with 24 different colour choices for the leather, and 13 for the veneer. And if you want something truly unique, Bentley’s Mulliner division can create anything you dream up.
Only world-class technology is suitable to grace the Bentley Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase, and that’s exactly what you’ll get. Extensive soundproofing means that the cabin remains quiet and calm even while the engine is at full throttle. There is no better way to fully appreciate the exquisite quality of sound produced by the optional NaimTM for Bentley system, which features 20 custom-made speakers, a 2,200-Watt amplifier and 8 DSP modes.
Business meetings are no problem while traveling, due to the 4G LTE telephone and internet connection, as well as an in-car WiFi hotspot, so all occupants of the car have access to whatever they need at unparalleled levels of speed.
Two 10.4” SMART tablets rest inside the front seatbacks, ready to emerge at the touch of a button, automatically adjusting to optimum viewing angle, or they can be detached and operated independently. So get ready, because infotainment just reach a whole new level.
