GENEVA MOTOR SHOW: Bentley Mulsanne Grand Limousine revealed

by March 1, 2016

Big Benter not big enough? The new Bentley Mulsanne Grand Limousine by Mulliner boasts a stretched name to match its one-metre-longer sedan body.

Now stretching 6.5 metres, the Mulsanne Grand Limousine boasts six seats with a rear compartment positioned with a duo of both forward- and rearward-facing seats “of equal comfort”.

“Inside the ultra-luxurious, customer-commissioned passenger cabin is an experience evocative of the very best in luxury private-aviation design,” the brand adds.

Bentley -Mulsanne -Grand -Limousine -interiorPassengers may note even before takeoff they are “accommodated beneath a uniquely crafted wood-veneered roof bow” that sits 79mm higher than a regular Mulsanne.

There is also a new electro chromatic glass feature that can change the rear window and cabin divider glass from clear to opaque at the touch of a button and an intercom facility between the driver and passengers.

That’s in addition to exclusive climate control zones, rear dials separately showing UK and local time, fold-out tables, iPad charging and docking facilities, bottle cooler with glass and crystal flutes and a “soft drink” cabinet with bespoke tumblers.

Bentley -Mulsanne -Grand -Limousine -rearMulliner is Bentley’s in-house coachbuilder of bespoke products for a special section of customers who clearly exist, because the Mulsanne Grand Limousine will be produced.

Finished in Moroccan Blue paint with Silver Frost accents, it wears 21-inch alloy wheels and promises re-engineered chassis and suspension, engine and gearbox, “guaranteeing the highest possible degree of passenger comfort and safety in the longest ultra-luxury sedan in the world.”

We reckon buyers of the gunshot-proof Mercedes-Benz S600 Pullman Guard may have something to say about that. Of course the only way to resolve the claim is with a comparison test. We’re happy to oblige.
