  • 2017 Bentley Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase

    Sometimes, the finest of automobiles can't escape a pesky recall. In this case, it's the Bentley Mulsanne, which has been recalled over rear seat safety belt buckles that may detach. Apparently, the rear seat buckles may totally detach from the seat in the event of a crash, which is a mighty ironic flaw in itself. The issue means the vehicles do not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety standards. As fine of a vehicle the Mulsanne is, it still needs to comply with federal regulations just like any $20,000 car on the road. Bentley isn't in the business of mass producing hundreds of...

    Ares realizes the Mulsanne coupe that Bentley won't

    Talk of coupe and convertible versions of the Mulsanne dates back to when the Bentley flagship sedan made its debut in 2009. Bentley last year finally got around to confirming a small run of Mulsanne convertibles, referred to as the Bentley Grand Convertible. However, we're still yet to see...

  • Bentley Mulsanne coupe by Mcchip-DKR

    Bentley itself hasn't built a Mulsanne coupe—or should that be Brooklands—but that hasn't stopped others from dreaming. More importantly, one company is executing on the dream. German tuner Mcchip-DKR is currently taking a standard issue Bentley Mulsanne sedan and chopping off the rear doors to create a 2-door Mulsanne. It's no easy task taking a well-crafted Bentley sedan and cutting two doors out; one single Mulsanne can take up to 400 hours to build. Mcchip-DKR's work is underway, and so far, the German firm has torn the Mulsanne apart and completely re-engineered the roof...

    Watch a Bentley Mulsanne come to life on the assembly line

    The Bentley Mulsanne isn't your typical automobile. It aims to redefine what luxury means. In fact, it's referred to as a "pinnacle car," rather a "luxury car." This is the pinnacle of Bentley's capability. It's not uncommon for the production process of a Bentley Mulsanne to approach 400 hours of...

    There's a new phrase for the very top layer of luxury in the car world. "Pinnacle cars" are the diamond-quilted, champagne-fluted versions of, you know, everyday luxury cars. A Benz S-Class isn't good enough to qualify. Make it a Maybach. Better yet, make it a Pullman. A Phantom? Fine, for...

  • 2017 Bentley Mulsanne facelift spy shots - Image via S. Baldauf/SB-Medien

    Named after a famous Le Mans corner, Bentley’s Mulsanne flagship sedan is about to enter its sixth year on the market and thus can do with a little sprucing up. We now have spy shots of a prototype for an updated Mulsanne, which we’re expecting on the market late next year or in early 2017. The big and burly Mulsanne first arrived on the scene back in 2010 as the replacement for the Arnage. Since then, there have been few updates although we did get a sporty Mulsanne Speed this year. From the spy shots, we can see that the updated Mulsanne will get a revised front incorporating a...

    Whipping three tons of steel, wood, and glass through the corner, I settle the wheel, straighten the car, and press the brakes—hard. Coming to a stop, I press and hold the traction control button. It’s time for a $406,000 burnout. Sadly, none of this is on video. Gladly, my head is a...
