The 2015 Bentley Mulsanne Is Possibly The Best Bentley Ever Created
Demanding perfection and not heading straight to Bentley is certainly a mistake. The British company, owned by the Volkswagen Group, builds some of the most amazing cars in the world and their top end car the Mulsanne is built on the axis of success of its expensive predecessors. The 2015 Bentley Mulsanne comes to show that Bentley scored the job of the century with the introduction of this model back in 2010. This is, maybe, the most perfect and best crafted car ever produced by the company.
There are number of reasons why this piece of art is north of $300,000. First of all, it’s got a heritage of one of the most amazing companies in the business, it is crafted mostly by hand by the best British craftsmen and construction and production of some elements on it indeed require a rather special approach.
To get the perfect finish on each and every unit produced, Bentley craftsmen have to sand and polish the car for dozens of hours. However, as the Mulsanne exterior panels are produced from different materials (aluminum, steel and some kind of an alloy), the process of forming these elements to perfectly fit next to each other is rather tiresome (and you’ve guessed it, expensive). However, the 2015 Bentley Mulsanne isn’t just any car; it is a full size executive limousine whose exterior has to be as perfect as its exterior. This is a benchmark car and Volkswagen (owner of Bentley), knows it. That is why the exterior can be had only with a few special colors applied by hand, the car is powered by a special engine developed and built by hand (and by hand-picked tools), and the interior is garnished with the laser cut, computer inspected leather.
The 2015 Bentley Mulsanne continues on the foundations of the cars before it, which means that it is aimed toward the wealthiest of the wealthiest and that is something we all can appreciate. As much as the perfectly executed exterior is awe-inspiring and dominant on the streets, the interior brings everything to a whole different level. Apparently, the leather on the inside comes from 16 cattle hides. After it reaches the company, the leather is electronically scanned for flaws and every imperfection is removed. Basically, half of the leather is removed and it goes to waste. No wonder then that the price is off the hook.
Apart from the best leather available, the 2015 Bentley Mulsanne interior is absolutely garnished with wood. The wood is specially crafted and prepared in the in-company wood shop and even the wood inside is formed that way so it has crumple zones like the metal elements.
Novelty for 2015 is the Bentley Mulsanne Speed, which is an addition to the already present 2015 Bentley Mulsanne. The main difference between it and the “normal” Mulsanne is a revised and bit more powerful engine which provides astonishing performance for the car. Thus, the 2015 Bentley Mulsanne is able to accelerate to 62 mph in 4.9 seconds while the top speed is at 190 mph. That is quite remarkable for such a large car.
Of course, not every Mulsanne is the same and the buyers are able to customize their cars as they want. Every single unit is adapted to specific tastes of its buyer and that is something that makes the 2015 Bentley Mulsanne exceptional, exclusive and spectacular.
