The Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase is the most comfortable and luxurious car in the Mulsanne range. Designed for customers with a preference for being driven, it offers a first-class air-travel experience on the road. With an extra 250mm of legroom in the rear and sumptuous, light-filled cabin space, it is very much a car for those who demand more time and space to think. The Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase is a new benchmark in comfort and refinement.
The extension of the Mulsanne’s wheelbase (from 3,266 mm up to 3,516 mm) is entirely to the benefit of rear-seat passenger. This significant increase in legroom and interior space makes it the most generously proportioned luxury limousine in the world.
To make the best use of the additional rear legroom, Bentley has developed optional airline-style electronic leg rests, seamlessly integrated into the bases of the two rear seats. These extend out and pivot, giving the choice between upright, relaxed and reclined seating positions.
A large-format sunroof is standard on Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase. It floods the rear cabin with light and can be controlled by passengers and driver. The tilting glass pane, which features an Alcantara sunblind, reinforces the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase’s focus on the rear cabin occupants.
A beautifully designed optional centre console, crafted from the finest veneer, metal, glass and leather, can divide the rear seats. Rear seats can also be specified with folding picnic tables. Electric privacy curtains are fitted as standard and can be tailored with either a black or ivory coloured lining.
The imposing front of the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase is dominated by a radiator shell with bright stainless steel vertical vanes. The one-piece bumper, bonnet and fenders integrate seamlessly to create a sense of width and presence. These features flow down to the lower signature grille section flanked by ‘B’ wing vents. A choice of Duo-tone paintwork can add a personal finishing touch.
As well as being the most comfortable and luxurious car in the world, the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase also offers a sublime driving experience.
Beneath Mulsanne’s bonnet lies a 6¾ litre, twin turbocharged V8 engine that produces 506 bhp (377 kW / 513 PS) at 4,200 rpm and up to 1,020 Nm (752 lb.ft) of torque at 1,750 - 3,250 rpm. This immense power takes it from 0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds (0-100 km/h in 5.5 seconds), and on to a top speed of 184 mph (296 km/h). The 8-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive provide imperceptible gearshifts and seamless acceleration to deliver a truly spirited ride. Cutting-edge engine technology delivers competitive emissions (CO2 of 342g/km) and (18.8 mpg) fuel economy.
As well as a wide range of personalisation options, including over 100 exterior colours, 11 veneers and 24 hide colours, there are many additional ways to make your mark on your Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase. With Mulliner, you can specify your car in special finishes such as satins, metallics and pearlescents. Mulliner also offer a range of duo-tone exterior paint combinations.
Additionally, you can choose from comfort headrests and super-soft Alcantara headrest cushions or a powered Alcantara roller blind. There is also the option to have a rear screen, controlled from front or rear cabin. Partner these additions with the extra 250 mm of legroom for rear passengers and full-length console with twin deployable picnic tables and enhanced stowage, and you can create the perfect space to relax in.
The Mulliner Specification is available specifically for the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase’s interior. It adds superb styling cues including diamond-quilted seats, a knurled gear lever and organ stop controls. Drilled alloy sport pedals and optional Bentley Carbon Fibre Inserts to waistrails complete the look. Additionally, you can opt for 21” Radiance wheels as part of this specification.
And if you wish to go one step further to make your car truly bespoke, then the Mulliner department – the definition of personalisation – is always on hand to help.
