Bentley Mulsanne Engine
While there may be arguments on the way the latest Bentley Mulsanne looks. There will be no complaints whatsoever about the way it carries out its road business. Under its lengthy bonnet, the Mulsanne has a 6.75-liter V8 engine with powerful twin turbochargers.
This engine produces colossal amounts of power, which is to the tune of 505 hp and 752 ft-lbs of torque. In essence, this power and transmission make the Mulsanne fast for such a heavy machine. It is like having a big country house in combination with a thruster from the space shuttle on the road!
As is always the norm with V8 engines, the Mulsanne engine carries a rolling thunder soundtrack. The transmission of this noise and vibration into the cabin gets limited thanks to new active engine mounts. In other words, the Mulsanne’s engine is much smoother and quieter. It’s like having a storm far over in the horizon and not closer to you.
Bentley Mulsanne Top Speed
As noted above and needless to say, the Mulsanne is so rapid for its weight. It’s like a small jet on the road in the way it reaches 62mph (0-100km/s) in just 5.1 seconds. Even in these astounding levels of speed, the Mulsanne feels stable, composed and firmly planted to the ground. The 8-speed automatic gearbox and let the engine’s torque peak at 1,750 rpm so you won’t need to do a lot of revving. In short, the Mulsanne may be close to a limo in resemblance but doesn’t drive like one. It’s way faster.
