Get Bentley

Introducing the sophisticated Bentley Mulsanne Speed

By The Editors

The best cars strike the perfect balance between weight and agility.

And no car manufacturer skirts that line as well as Bentley. Their new Mulsanne Speed is a behemoth of a sedan that packs a punch like a sports car — thanks to a 6.75-liter twin turbo-charged V8 engine — but tips the scales at a meaty 5,977 pounds.

You won’t find that kind of derrière in the garages of competitors (brother-in-English-arms Rolls Royce notwithstanding).

Drop the hammer and this beast revs up to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds. Keep it on the floor a little longer and you’ll be topping out at 190. There aren’t many production-line vehicles sitting on 21” wheels that can claim that.

Inside, the handsomely appointed display weds classically-designed dials and gages with a tech-savvy digital console for your tunes and temperature.

In the kitchen: premium leather stitched in contrasting colors for raffish good looks. And because it’s a Bentley, there’s enough room to host a small convention — we’re talking 18 feet nose-to-tail and seven feet across.

With an MPG that averages around 14, this isn’t a ride that’s gonna win you any friends at the EPA.

No sir.

At $335k, this is the car for the man who rolls with F-You ducats.
