Its mediocre at best. Its not an instant classic and it certainly doesnt look like it will cost well over 200K. The headlights are atrocious and not having a rear bumper looks all sorts of awkward not to mention BIG $$$$ if rear ended in an accident. This model will get SPANKED by the new Rolls Royce Ghost.

Even the current Arnage which is over a decade old is better looking. Plus IMO it actually looks like it should command a 200K+ pricetag.

The Bentley Continental GT shows how to do modern and elegant together, this car does elegant to a degree but is not modern IMO.

Mulsanne coupe and cabrio are on the way

Majestic Bentley makes bow, setting new benchmark for class.


Auto Express Car Reviews
By Dan Strong
21st September 2009

It's the amazing new Bentley that sets fresh standards for performance and driveability – and it will spawn a family of models, including a coupé and convertible, too!

This is the Mulsanne, a luxurious limousine with a 6.75-litre V8 that produces 510bhp and 1,020Nm of torque, plus boasts a hand-finished chassis and state-of-the-art air suspension.

And Bentley is planning fresh replacements for both the Brooklands coupé and Azure convertible based on the newcomer, which made its public debut at Frankfurt.

The company is certainly confident the Mulsanne will reset the luxury car benchmark for years to come. Speaking exclusively to Auto Express, Bentley’s Dr Ulrich Eichhorn said: “With this car, we assessed the performance, craftsmanship and refinement of the Arnage – and enhanced it in every way. We have produced a car of the highest possible quality.”

Powered by a 6.75-litre twin-turbo V8, the Mulsanne offers a number of firsts for the luxury sector, such as cam-phasing, which adjusts engine performance and fuel efficiency. Variable displacement technology is also featured, which shuts down cylinders to save fuel at cruising speed. Inside, there’s a 2,200-watt Naim audio system with 20 speakers – all connected to a 40GB hard drive boasting the latest navigation technology and Internet connection.

Buyers keen on the cabrio and coupé are likely to have to wait at least a couple of years for their introduction, however.

Yes, but those headlights would look great on a Jeep.
