Bentley’s Classic Mulsanne Model Gets a High-Tech Upgrade

  • Christina Garofalo

Bentley has recharged its most iconic model, the Mulsanne, with a series of new features that serve modern business executives. From the backseat, two picnic tables designed for an iPad and wireless keyboard deploy to create a comfortable workstation; the sleek metal-and-cowhide tables are adjustable and are built with an iPad charger that works when the car’s ignition is on. Additionally, a new mobile telecommunications system, which includes a SIM card reader, comes with onboard Wi-Fi that works with up to eight devices simultaneously.

But the new Mulsanne is not all about work. A new entertainment system features twin 8-inch LCD headrest screens, a DVD player, 20 GB of hard drive to save movies and games, and a Naim audio system with two sets of Bluetooth headphones and a remote control. To supplement the new entertainment features, Bentley has accounted for added time in the car. Enhanced headrests now have adjustable wings for lateral support; carpeted footrests stow beneath the front seats; and new loose seat cushions, available with customizable embroidery, are filled with duck down.

Bentley also collaborated with the Italian luggage maker Schedoni to create a series of custom luggage pieces fitted to the trunk of the car. Available as a set or individually, the collection comprises two large suitcases, two small suitcases, and two foldable garment bags, handmade from the same hides used in the car’s interior.

Bentley will begin taking orders for the fully stocked Mulsanne in April. Three new combinations of paint and hide colors will be available, for greater customization. (www.bentleymotors.com)
