British luxury car maker Bentley unveiled their new £200,000 supercar the Bentley Mulsanne. The Bentley is aimed at the super wealthy and will be on sale in 2010.
There are only limited details of the Bentley Mulsanne, it is thought it will cost in excess of £200,000 with a top speed of 200mph and the ability to accelerate from 0-60mph in under six seconds powered by its massive 6.75 litre V8 engine which develops more than 500 brake horse power.
A spokesman said: 'The car is arguably the purest big Bentley to have been built since the 1930s. It has been completely designed and built in Crewe and has virtually no carry-over of parts from the Arnage which was built during period when Rolls-Royce and Bentley shared technology and engineering.' The Bentley Mulsanne has a completely new platform and will go into production next year in a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility within the Crewe factory. Bentley said the new Bentley Mulsanne, which replaces the current Arnarge range, represents 'a unique combination of traditional coachbuilding skills and state-of-the art automotive design and engineering'.
The Bentley Mulsanne won’t win any fans in the green lobby the fuel consumption is expected to be only 15 miles to the gallon and CO2 emissions in excess of 400g/km. The Bentley Mulsanne takes its name from a stretch of the legendary Le Mans racing circuit which has been the scene of no fewer than six Bentley triumphs, including four consecutive victories by the 'Bentley Boys between 1927 and 1930.
