2014 Bentley Mulsanne

As if it's not luxurious enough, Bentley's flagship Mulsanne sedan is getting a range of new luxury features, which make their debut at the Geneva International Salon d’Auto in March.

A new Comfort Specification includes comfort headrests, footrests and duck-down-filled loose cushions. These enhancements will enable the Mulsanne's rear cabin occupants to maximize work or rest as they travel, the company says.

Whether relaxing or working, privacy can be attained through the touch of a button, with new privacy curtains offered as a factory-fitted option.

Other cabin revisions include a new standard rear door-armrest storage compartment that can hold mobile phones, personal items or Bluetooth headphones for Rear Seat Entertainment.

The new Entertainment Specification incorporates the latest in technological developments, with picnic tables designed for an iPad and wireless keyboard. And the cabin of the Mulsanne becomes a Wi-Fi Hotspot.

The picnic tables reveal a smooth leather-trimmed writing surface that lifts at the touch of a button to reveal a dedicated space for an iPad and keyboard, ready to connect to a web browser via the on-board Wi-Fi router.

The Entertainment Specification is further enhanced with twin, eight inch LCD headrest screens, incorporating a 20 GB hard drive and DVD player, played through a ‘Naim for Bentley’ premium audio system. The system includes two sets of Bluetooth headphones and a remote control.


range of bespoke Mulsanne luggage pieces, hand-made by Italian luggage specialists Schedoni, are also now available.

The full collection comprises six pieces – two large cases, two small cases and two foldable garment bags. The overall shape of the luggage is inspired by the inner door panel design of the car, with the frame surrounding the main side panels echoing the main feature frame of the door with its characteristic twin ridge.

The frame also serves to neatly guide the luggage in position into the trunkof the car while also protecting the handle.

The pieces are hand-made to customer’s specification, featuring monogram Bentley lining and embossed Bentley logos. They can be purchased as a full six-piece set or individually.

Customer orders for Mulsannes with these new options will begin in April.
