The New Bentley Mulsanne - The Pinnacle of British Motoring

27 May 2010

Free Evening Lecture open to Members and Non Members

Speaker: Dr Ulrich Eichhorn is Engineering Member of the Board for Bentley Motors Limited.



When he founded Bentley Motors in 1919, W.O. Bentley wanted to create a car at the pinnacle of motoring: Large, fast, refined and comfortable.  This philosophy resonates deeply at Bentley and has, over time, created a legacy that embodies all of these characteristics record-breaking feats, daring exploits and a long succession of exquisitely handcrafted and beautifully engineered cars.  Now, more than 90 years later, the all-new flagship Bentley Mulsanne embodies W.O. Bentley's passion.  It is a powerful and elegant driver's car like nothing else on the road.



The first "grand Bentley" to be entirely engineered developed and built by Bentley Motors at Crewe, the new Mulsanne is a technological tour-de-force whilst remaining true to Bentley traditions.  Combining immense power and torque from the completely re-engineered 6.75ltr V8 engine, a new body structure featuring the latest manufacturing techniques, state-of-the-art electronic systems and the highest standards of luxury quality and detail, the Mulsanne represents the very best of Bentley.
