FOLLOWING THE LEAD of the Continental GT coupe, convertible and Flying Spur saloon, the all-new 2011 Bentley Mulsanne might be heading towards a similar model expansion.
According to British news site Auto Express, Bentley is working to replace the Arnage-based Brooklands coupe and Azure convertible with Mulsanne-bodied equivalents.
Replacing the Arnage in the Bentley line-up, the Mulsanne will need an expanded model line to cover the voids left by the Brooklands and Azure.
Bentley announced in September last year that the Arnage and its variants will cease production in 2009, leaving the way clear for the Mulsanne and its possible variants to enter the brand's line-up.
The question of whether coupe and convertible versions of the Mulsanne are on the cards may be some years away from an answer however, with production of the sedan not due to commence until early to mid 2010.
