The next 300C will now debut

Overall I really like it but I don't like the small lower headlight things.

Default Bentley Mulsanne Revealed at Pebble Beach

http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2...ble-beach.html



Quote:
There couldn’t be a more perfect venue to debut the latest Bentley product and successor to the fabulously-regal Arnage than the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Accompanied by bagpipers, the “Grand Bentley”, now officially named the Mulsanne, drove up on to the awards show platform - a stage many Bentleys have graced before.

Many past Bentleys have taken their names from the famous Circuit de la Sarthe, Le Mans race track and this Bentley is no different. Whereas the previous Bentley flagship, the Arnage, was named for a tight corner, this car is named after both a corner and a straight. On the long Mulsanne straight race cars have to slow from over 200mph to 65mph, then run through the a tight chicane and down the second half of the straight.

Bentley is keeping tight-lipped about much of the rest of the details of its new flagship until its auto show debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show this September.

What we do know is that it will continue to use a twin-turbocharged 6.75-liter V8 engine that has almost been completely redesigned to no doubt make even more horsepower and torque while using less fuel.

As for the design of the car, it’s as familiar as the engine, with a massive flat nose, huge circle headlights and plenty of chrome.

if they just removed the two lights on the far right it might have been alright.

it reminds me of the cunningham concept from a few years back or it might be the colour

I think it looks decent... typical Bentley style. The headlights don't do it for me though. In fact they sorta bother me.

Maybe I'm crazy but the first thing I thought of when I saw the headlights was a cartoonish/artistic representation old fashioned candlestick telephone w/ rotary dial, except much shorter in length and with the rotary dial sitting behind the part you speak into.

Well I believe it found influence from old Bentleys
