Bentley chose the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance to unveil their next-generation flagship model, the Mulsanne. The vehicle gets its name from a 90 degree corner at the Le Mans race track.

Conceived, styled and engineered entirely at Bentley's headquarters in Crewe, England, the Mulsanne is an entirely new car which features completely new technology. It is not an evolution of an existing model, and the drivetrain required a complete redesign of the famous 6.75L V8 and replacing every significant part to improve acceleration, performance throughout the range and fuel efficiency and emissions.

Powering the 2010 Bentley Mulsanne is a twin-turbocharged, 6.75 litre V8 which develops 505 horsepower and 752 lb/ft (1020 Nm) of torque from 1,800 rpm. Power is sent to the rear wheels through an 8-speed automatic.

The Bentley Mulsanne's styling was inspired by the Bentley 8-litre model from 1930 - 1931. In particular the unusual, and dare I say rather ugly headlight arrangement was one such feature lifted from the 8-litre. However despite the awkward front end styling there is no doubting the exceptional engineering which lies beneath the imposing bodywork.

With the Mulsanne, Bentley hope to position themselves at the top of the ultra-luxury segment
