2013 Bentley Mulsanne OverviewThe Mulsanne is Bentley's flagship sedan. It's larger than the Arnage, which it replaced in 2011, with a wheelbase of 128.6 inches and an overall length of 219.5 inches; giving it a significant amount of interior and trunk space.
The front end is dominated by the marque's trademark mesh grille, as well as two large round headlamps and LED daytime running lights mounted lower. It has a long nose and short deck and a retractable Bentley mascot is optional. Buyers have their choice of more than 130 standard exterior colors and 24 interior hide colors.
The Mulsanne's 6.75L, twin-turbocharged V8 produces 505 horsepower and an impressive 752 ft-lb of torque, while cylinder deactivation technology allows it to deliver a combined 13 mpg. The engine is paired with a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. And although the Mulsanne is relatively heavy at 5,650 pounds, the powerplant offers 0?60 mph times of under 5.5 seconds.
Although it shares some of its mechanical and electrical components with other Audi and Volkswagen products, the Mulsanne is still a hand-built Bentley from Crewe and its interior is top-notch, with high-end leather and wood surfaces used throughout. Bentley says the interior takes 165 hours to assemble, with the heated steering wheel cover taking nearly five hours to complete by hand. The MMI interface, entertainment system, air suspension system and transmission are all Audi A8 units.
A host of airbags are standard, including front units and dual side airbags for both front and rear passengers. Four-wheel anti-lock brakes are also part of the package, as well as traction control, stability control, tire pressure monitors and braking assist.
Options include a dynamics package, which includes a performance engine tune, recalibrated transmission, free-flowing exhaust, 21-inch wheels and unique seats. A Mulliner edition is also available, ramping up the car's interior luxury one step further with a bevy of customizable options.
2013 Bentley Mulsanne Model Changes
The Bentley Mulsanne is largely unchanged for 2013, though an exclusive Le Mans Limited Edition celebrates the marque's six victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Available in one of six distinct combinations of exterior color, interior trim, stitching and veneer, the package adds more than $26,000 to the Mulsanne's base price.
2013 Bentley Mulsanne Value
The Mulsanne is aimed at buyers looking for a driver's car at the high end of the automotive spectrum--a place usually reserved for exotics and chauffeur-driven luxury cars. It features classic Bentley looks over a handsome design, and it's the first "big Bentley" built since the company was purchased by Volkswagen, so it utilizes many off-the-shelf components from cars like the Audi A8. With its high-end luxury and excellent overall performance, the Mulsanne is fit to take on offerings from Maybach, Rolls-Royce and BMW.
