exhibiting at the paris motor show on the 2nd of october, the 2015 bentley ‘malsanne speed’ features a 6 3/4 liter v8 engine that delivers 530 bhp and 1,100 Nm of torque. this twin-turbo propels the luxury car from 0-100 km/h in 4.9 seconds and to a top velocity of 305 km/h. the redesigned combustion system is the reason behind this, as it promotes a much faster and more controlled ignition process. also, the power-train has been re-engineered to emit 342 g/km of CO2 meeting both EU6 emissions legislations and US LEV III standards.

to manage all this capacity, the vehicle includes sports suspension that stiffens the all-round air dampener for improved body control and steering dynamics. this provides greater feedback and accuracy creating a more tailored driving experience. to coincide with its force, an assertive headway styling is reflected to not only demonstrate classic british leisure, but also the company’s hand-made craftsmanship design. the dark tint finishes applied to the wing vents and the exterior stainless steel matrix, radiator and lower bumper grilles demonstrate this vision.

on the outside, the bentley is available in spectre (a black color with hints of gold and green), candy red, camel and marlin (rich blue with a green paint scheme). the interior is a contemporary reinterpretation where the hide door panels and seats are quilted with diamonds, and have the motor’s emblem embroidered into them. the inside features a 60 GB on-board hard drive that can store the driver’s collection of music and films, a 2,200 watt naim 14-speaker system and a frosted glass bottle cooler installed behind the rear armrest. there are also electrically-operated tables with connections for ipads that can join to the on-board wifi via a dedicated router.

‘the new mulsanne speed is the car that defines bentley, as a flagship for driving luxury performance. our customers don’t compromise, and we’ve adopted the same approach in the design, engineering and crafting of our new flagship. the mulsanne speed is distinguished, calm and relaxing, but always with a connection to the road and relentless dynamic performance on demand. In this car, every journey becomes a drive.’ said chairman and chief executive of bentley motors, wolfgang dürheimer.
