The Bentley Mulsanne (codenamed New Grand Bentley) is the official name of the new Ultra-Luxury flagship offering from British manufacturer Bentley Motors Limited.. The new model, replaces the aging Arnage that has been spearheading the lineup since 1998. It will go head to head with the Rolls-Royce Phantom and the Maybach 62.

There is wild speculation as well regarding the engine as the Arnage's 6.75 litre V8 is even more archaic, going on for over 50 years. Some sources claim that the venerable British workhorse will either be replaced or supplemented by ones from Audi, including the V12 TDI.

Recent ChangesEdit

  • As expected, the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance played host to the introduction of the new flagship Bentley. Called the Bentley Mulsanne, the Arnage replacement is about eleven inches longer than the Flying Spur, revives the historic Mulsanne name and redesigned carte blanche. The car borrows styling elements from the historic 8-liter Bentleys from the brand's pre-Rolls-Royce days (especially in the headlamp arrangement) and the Bentley Brooklands. Underneath the bonnet is a V8, however, details such as horsepower figures or if the new engine retains the classic 6.75 litre displacement are still under wraps until the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show.
