In the world of high-end luxury cars the topmost slot is reserved for British brand Bentley and its former sister brand Rolls-Royce. Bentley cars are often categorized as ‘super luxury’ cars. Bentley Motors Limited was founded in 1919 by W. O. Bentley. Later in 1931, it was acquired by Rolls-Royce. In 1998, it was acquired by German automobile group Volkswagen. Despite known as a luxury car brand, Bentley cars have tremendous performance and has won the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans, a total of five times. One of its current production models is the ‘Mulsanne’. The ‘Mulsanne’ nameplate was originally used in a model that was built from 1980- 1992. The name was originally derived from a stretch of the Le Mans race. Later in 2010, a new ‘Mulsanne’ was introduced to replace the ‘Bentley Arnage’. The new ‘Mulsanne’ was also the first car in almost 80 years that featured independent designing from Bentley as most Bentley cars share platforms with Rolls Royce cars. Bentley is now ready with a new version of the model called the ‘Mulsanne Speed’ that has a higher performance than the base model. Wolfgang Dürheimer, chief executive and chairman of Bentley has said that the new model defines Bentley and can be considered to be flagship model that combines driving pleasure and luxury. He claimed that Bentley has not compromised on any aspect- engineering, design and craftsmanship to give the customers the very best of the brand. The new model is faster than the base model and also has better acceleration.

The stainless steel front matrix grille has been given a finish of dark tint. The same finish is given to the wing vents and lower bumpers as well. The headlights are also very distinct and carry the same dark tint treatment. The taillights at the rear have a floating design and thanks to the same dark finish, look very striking at night time. With the new ‘Mulsanne Speed’ Bentley has launched the directional style wheel for the very first time. The wheels come in 21 inch style and are available with multiple finishes. There are two rifled tailpipes for exhaust at the rear. Along with the launch of the model, four exterior colors are also added to the range.
