The V8 engine gets more power and earth-moving 811 lb-ft of torque.
Mansory's latest ultra luxury creation is based on the Bentley Mulsanne – and, thankfully, is more stylish than some of the recent developments of the tuning studio. The fresh exterior appearance of the limousine is enhanced with visible carbon fibre details, such as new front bumper lip spoiler and fog lamps surround. The upgrades continue with carbon fibre side skirts, discreet boot lid spoiler, and rear bumper diffuser. A set of massive 22-inch light forged wheels is wrapped in “ultra-high performance” 285/35Z tires for both axles, as recommended by the company.
More important upgrades have occurred under the hood, where the 2.6-ton four-door Mulsanne has received some significant improvements. The V8 gasoline engine of the car now delivers 585 horsepower at 4,000 rpm, compared to 512 hp in the standard variant of the sedan. All that power, and a monstrous torque of 811 pound feet at 2,300 rpm, provide an impressive acceleration from a standstill to 100 kilometres per hour in 5.0 seconds. The top speed has also been raised from 296 km/h to 305 km/h.
Mansory hasn’t released interior photos of the Mulsanne project yet, but the studio says customers can customize their cars with a unique mix of brushed aluminum, bare carbon fibre, and burled or high-gloss piano surfaces. The tuner explains the decorative details can be ordered in any desired colour to “perfectly complement the leather on the dashboard and seats.”
The last time Mansory worked on a Bentley model was in November last year, when we saw a white-black Bentayga with similar carbon fibre components and engine upgrade to 691 hp and 773 lb-ft of torque.
