is an updated 6.75-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. Thanks to it the new Mulsanne Speed ​​can reach 100km/h in 4.9 seconds and a top speed of 305km/h. Despite the increased output of this version, Bentley still managed to increase efficiency by 13% through the use of cylinder deactivation technology that allows the vehicle to drive as if equipped with a V4 engine.

The engine of the new Mulsanne Speed ​​was combined with a recalibrated automatic eight-speed ZF transmission. The vehicle also includes an "S" mode that gives the driver more control over the vehicle and keeps the engine speed at 2000rpm, allowing for a more immediate throttle response.

According to Bentley the new Mulsanne version complies to the EU6 emissions standards with 342g/km of CO2 and an average fuel consumption of 14,6l/100km.

In terms of design the new Mulsanne Speed ​​can be distinguished from standard Mulsanne through the new dark tone on the stainless steel front grille, front mesh, the headlights and taillights.

The Mulsanne Speed ​​is also equipped with 21" alloy wheels and dual exhaust outlets. The vehicle is available with a range of new exterior colors.

Inside the Bentley offers new customization options of the vehicle, including new finishes and coatings, but is fitted with the Mulliner Driving Specification trim as standard. This line includes diamond pattern stitching on the seats and door panels, special pedals and new headlining.

The new Mulsanne Speed will ​​hit the market later this year.
