Report: Bentley Mulsanne to Spawn Coupe and Convertible Models

Bentley officially launched its new Mulsanne flagship at the Frankfurt Auto Show last week and now word comes that the massive luxury sedan will also spawn a coupe and convertible model.

The news is hardly a surprise, as the car it replaces (the Arnage) was used as the basis for the Brooklands coupe and Azure convertible. It also suits Bentley’s three-pronged approach with its “entry-level” lineup of vehicles, the Flying Spur sedan, Continental GT coupe and GTC convertible. The new lineup of Mulsanne-derived vehicles will also compete head-on with similar products from Rolls-Royce, which will be based on that company’s latest model, the Ghost.

Full specifications on the Mulsanne aren’t yet available, but we do have most of the details, including a new 6.75-liter V8 motor that makes 510hp and an astonishing 752 ft-lbs of torque.
