Join @Shmee150 as he celebrates with us the world’s finest handmade car.
At the time of its launch, Mulsanne Speed was the most powerful four-door car in the world. It featured immense torque, thanks to a more enhanced version of Bentley’s mighty 6¾-litre twin-turbo V8 engine generating 530 bhp at 4,000 rpm and 1,100 Nm of torque: the highest torque of any four-door luxury car. It accelerated effortlessly from 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds (0‑100 km/h in 4.9 seconds) and reached a top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h).
Offering a sporting take on luxury, its rifled stainless steel tailpipes, unique 21” wheels, dark tint brightware and ‘Speed’ fender badges all added to its powerful road presence. A series of assertive styling features included a dark tint finish applied to the exterior brightware, including matrix grilles, bumper, radiator grille and ‘B’ wing vents. The dark tint extended to both front and rear lights. 21” Speed alloy wheels, with a dark-tint option, were Bentley’s first-ever directional style wheel.
Mulsanne Speed also included interior features that further highlighted its sporting abilities. These included diamond-quilted seats and door pads, knurled gear lever and drilled alloy sports pedals. A striking sports interior colour split with perforated hide also ensure the Speed’s unique place in the Mulsanne family.
