2015 Bentley Mulsanne Speed

The Flying Spur is gorgeous and all, but the Mulsanne is the 4-door from Bentley is considered the flagship 4-door from Bentley. This week, the luxury automaker rolls out their most recent iteration in the 2015 Bentley Muslanne Speed.

The brand’s flagship sedan is powered by a twin-turbo V8 engine pumping out 530 horsepower along with a ground rumbling 811 lb-ft of torque through an 8-speed automatic transmission. This setup helps the massive vehicle sprint from 0-60 mph in just 4.8 seconds, with the ability to hit a top speed of 190 mph. Bentley has really focused on efficiency with this power plant, enacting a cylinder deactivation system that will transition the 8-cylinder down to 4 cylinders during cruising speeds. The exterior has been finished off with a dark tint to help it turn some heads in traffic, and opening up the doors reveals an interior decked out in beautiful quilted leather, plenty of high-tech gadgetry, and a 2,200 watt Naim audio system.
