Luxury car manufacturer, Bentley, revealed its latest offering last week. The £200,000 supercar was unveiled at the exclusive Pebble Beach “Concours D’Elegance” in California, the place to shop if you’re super rich or super famous, it showcases the latest lavish vehicles available.
Bentley has a long a rich tradition within the U.K and is the most popular choice for wedding cars. Bentley wedding cars are in high demand, especially through the summer months which is peak wedding season. The Baby Bentley limo and the Bentley Flying Spur are firm favourites within the wedding car industry, however this new and improved Bentley Mulsanne is likely to blow the competition out of the water.
The new Bentley Mulsanne will be at the forefront of the Bentley line-up. It takes over from the Bentley Arnage, a previous best seller for the U.K firm. The Mulsanne is also due to be premiered at The Frankfurt Motor Show in September in a bid to corner the affluent European market. However those who do fancy making the New Bentley Mulsanne their own will have to wait a while, the vehicle won’t go on sale until mid 2010.
Bentley has suffered as a result of the economic downturn. It is hoped that this innovative new automobile described as “the purest Bentley since the 1930’s” will help the iconic firm regain some of its losses. Designed and built on British soil, in Crewe to be precise, the success of the Mulsanne would provide a huge boost for the U.K economy and safeguard thousands of jobs.
With top speeds of 200mph, 0-60 in less than six second and over 500 break horse power, this new Bentley packs one hell of a punch. However the thirsty car only manages 15mpg so you’ll have to save up your pennies before you let loose on the open road.
