The 2011 Mulsanne is Bentley's all-new super luxurious flagship.
Dignified, yet possessing high-tech smarts, it replaces the long-running Arnage as the marque's new flagship. It's longer by about 7 inches and packs a lot more equipment, but thanks to the increased use of aluminum, curb weight has actually decreased slightly.
Horsepower and torque are up slightly, and another improvement is the new eight-speed automatic transmission that replaces the old six-speed unit. If you go by EPA
fuel economy estimates, the Mulsanne gets 30 percent better fuel economy than the old
Arnage. That spirit of improvement has also touched the voluminous cabin.
Those expecting a flawless leather-lined and wood-trimmed interior will not be disappointed. Nor will those expecting the latest modern conveniences, thanks to a helping hand from sister company Audi, as the new electronics interface is very similar to Audi's MMI system.
As one would expect, customers can choose from a seemingly endless list of colors for the exterior and interior, or specify any color they can dream up.
The 2011 Bentley Mulsanne is powered by an all-new, twin-turbo 6.8-liter V8 that produces 505 horsepower and 752 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic with shift paddles is the sole transmission offered and it channels power to the rear wheels.
Safety features for the 2011 Bentley Mulsanne include front and rear side airbags for the head and thorax, stability control, traction control, antilock disc brakes with brake assist and automatic hill hold.
Despite a portly 5,700-pound curb weight, the 2011 Bentley Mulsanne moves with the urgency of a much lighter car. Its 505 hp might not sound all that impressive, but the 752 lb-ft of torque certainly is -- especially when all of that power opens up from only 1,800 rpm.
The Mulsanne is built to carry occupants in ultimate luxury, insulated in a silent leather-lined bubble. And on that score, it achieves magnificently.
Bentley treats the 2011 Mulsanne's cabin with more of an (obsession with detail.) Nearly every surface is covered in leather; it even lines the trunk.
Bentley reverted to the old style of tanning that yields an exquisitely supple feel and a more pleasant scent free of chemicals.

Inside the cabin, occupants are treated to leather upholstery for nearly every surface, wood trim, glass switchgear, heated 14-way power front seats with memory, heated eight-way power rear seats with memory (outboard seats only), four-zone automatic climate control, a power tilt-and-telescoping multifunction steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and power rear-window privacy screens.
