2011 Bentley Mulsanne - Click above for high-res image gallery

So far, we've only seen the one champagne-colored Bentley Mulsanne. While not our first choice, it's the shade Bentley thought would drum up the most interest amongst potential customers. Not knowing too much about how the mega-wealthy think, we'll trust Bentley. However, us plebes ain't been too pleased with the Mulsanne in the looks department. Until now. We think the blue (one of 126 standard colors) helps tremendously. We know there will be disagreement on the matter, but let us remind you of one thing: 752 lb-ft of torque at 1,800 rpm.

      This car is imposing and impressive. When you consider cars like the Mulsanne and the big Rolls, the intent is not to be pretty, but rather to be stately and huge and in-yer-face. Everything is big and over-engineered and overdone. There is and always will be a market for this type of car when pretty and lithe won't do. It may not be your cup of tea but you can be sure all will notice when one drives by. Dissing the front end is kind of beside the point. The Mulsanne is now a match for the Phantom locomotive. If you want more restrained stuff, the Flying Spur and Ghost are also available.

      The front of this car looks like a sadistic maniac! Blue makes no difference

      Think "The Car" movie....

      I didn't think it looked that bad in the other color either. The blue does look nice though. It is quite the stately car that has presence and commands attention without being ostentatious.

        I am in love with this car.

        I hated the first spyshots but damn, this thing has got the look.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Yes, it doesn't look quite as gawdawfully ugly as it did in the other color...

      ...in this color, it merely look like a fancy Dodge Charger.

      It does look much better in blue indeed. But still not good enough for that kind of money. Even though... if i had to haul my rear in the back with my personal chaffeur, i wouldn't complain at all! The interior must be sexy.

      how much weight is that 752 ft-lb lugging around? If it's 6,700 lbs like the Arnage, well...

      This car isn't growing on me but then again I still don't think the continental is anything special either.

      BEAST

      I'd be afraid to accelerate hard in this for fear of tearing off the face of the earth.

      i love that blue color. i think the biggest improvement to my eyes, is the black B pillar. the gold car looked like it had one of those plastic chrome dealer-installed B pillar that you see on tacky used mercedes and lexuses

      Beige is for Camrys and Lexii. Blue is ok, I guess, but what about money green?

      Ditto the comments on "The Car" - wait untill we see it in black.

      While it may not be the prettiest car out there, it still looks magnificent. Massive, stately, elegant, and modern.

      I absolutely love it. Though I might actually love the new Bugatti (even though it's just a concept) a little more. The new Rolls is great, too. But it feels a little more cold and German to me than the Bentley and Bugatti do, even though they're all done by German companies. Maybe it's the gray color.

      And I still hate, hate, hate the Maybach.

      Is JLR still working on a new Daimler-branded competitor? If so, I'm prepared to be excited.
