The rich have spoken, and their servants have voted for them: the Bentley Mulsanne is the preferred ride of ballers around the world, according to a survey in Centurion Magazine.

The magazine is published by American Express, and only available to the lauded gentry who hold the Centurion Card—the black card. Their first Reader’s Choice survey attempted to answer the pressing questions of the jet-set lifestyle: which Girard-Perregaux tourbillon to pair with your William Westmancott bespoke suit, the merits of the Gulfstream G650 vs. the Challenger 604, the important things in life—and the Bentley Mulsanne took the Best Limousine/Saloon Car category in the only award that truly matters to those that know.

The Mulanne beat out the Aston Martin Rapide, the Maserati Quattroporte, the “they still make those?” Maybach, and a gilded Victorian sedan chair carried by swarthy, oiled manservants to win the award. Readers from Europe, the Middle East, Hong Kong, and the 40/40 Club on West 35th Street chose the Mulsanne for its handcrafted interior, new yet evolved styling, discreet technological advancements, and its blunt, cow-catcher front end that makes it easy to intimidate the serfs. As Kanye West put it, “address me as your highness, high as United, 30,000 feet up and you are not invited.”
