Bentley Mulsanne II facelift Sedan (2016-2020)
MSRP 316200 EUR63% Neofiliac84% External
Bentley Mulsanne II facelift is an ultra-luxury full-size sedan in production from 2016 to 2020. It is available with a twin-turbocharged V8 engine that displaces 6.75L.
This venerable OHV V8 can trace its heritage to the 1960s. While its 14.6L/100km (16.1mpg) fuel "dis-economy" may be painful, owners are surely prepared to pay for their "smiles-per-mile".
Handcrafted in England, it is meticulously detailed over around 400 hours by a team of highly skilled artisans. Mechanically, it is designed to deliver ultimate refinement in ride experience. Its look is exquisite as it is iconic.

There is a 25dB noise reduction overall, and the kind of serenity at speed Bentley is confident you won't find anywhere else. Blinds ensure absolute privacy for your head-hunting/liver-wrecking/takeover-brokering activities in the back. Screens rise from the back of the front seats on demand, to be viewed in situ or plucked from their mounts and used as tablets.
