Bentley will be heading to this year’s Geneva Motor Show in early March with a new version of its Mulsanne limousine.

Dubbed the ‘Bentley Mulsanne Mulliner Driving Specification’, the emphasis is on the driving experience and appealing to buyers interested in a “sportier look, feel and character”.

Setting the new Mulliner apart are a set of unique two-piece 21-inch alloy wheels, fitted with 265/40 ZR 21 tyres. The new wheels complement the ‘Flying B’ wing vents and their new stainless steel accents.

Further sharpening the handling is the addition of a ‘sport’ setting to the Drive Dynamics Control system. Select ‘sport’ and the air suspension and steering systems are re-tuned to provide more sporting handling and dynamics.

Despite the improved handling, the standard car's 6.75 litre twin-turbocharged 377kW/1020Nm engine remains unmolested in the Mulliner, the top-speed of 296km/h deemed sufficient for the job.

The sportier feel is carried through to the superbly luxurious cabin, where the leather trim features a bespoke Diamond Quilting pattern, reminiscent of previous Bentleys with a sporting flavour. Drilled alloy pedals further hint at the intent.

“The Mulsanne represents the pinnacle of British motoring with unrivalled luxury and effortless performance," commented Alasdair Stewart, Bentley’s Member of the Board for Sales and Marketing

"Now, the distinctly sporting accent of the new Mulliner Driving Specification provides an even greater degree of driving enjoyment without compromising the Mulsanne’s legendary comfort and refinement," he added.

In addition to the Mulliner, Bentley has announced two new options for the Mulsanne range, including a tilt-opening, tinted glass sunroof and an electrically operated bottle cooler with its own hand-blown and hand-cut lead crystal champagne flutes.
