New Bentley makes world debut


The new Bentley Mulsanne has been revealed at Pebbles beach Concours D'Elegance in California

Bentley Motors unveiled the Mulsanne over the weekend, the company’s all-new flagship grand tourer, at the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance in Monterey, California.

The Mulsanne is inspired by the company founder W.O. Bentley’s crowning achievement in 1930, the 8-litre.

The new Mulsanne was conceived, styled and engineered entirely at Bentley’s headquarters in Crewe, England. The Mulsanne goes into production next year in a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility within the Crewe factory.

Dr. Franz-Josef Paefgen, Chairman and Chief Executive of Bentley Motors, said: "The challenge we set our engineers was to create a new grand Bentley that would stand as the pinnacle of British luxury motoring, offering the world’s most exclusive driving experience. They have responded to this challenge with real passion and the result is a luxury grand tourer that sets new standards in terms of comfort, effortless performance and hand-crafted refinement – the very qualities for which Bentley is renowned."

The Bentley Mulsanne will go on sale from mid 2010. It will also be displayed at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show (15-27 September, 2009) where more information will be released.
