(Monday 24th September 2012, Dubai, UAE) Travelling in style is always a pleasure with the flagship Bentley Mulsanne, but now executives in the Middle East can work in complete luxury from the comfort of their vehicle. Bentley Motors have introduced the Mulsanne Executive Interior Specification which offers an impressive array of bespoke business, comfort and entertainment features – designed to help passenger conduct business on the move or just unwind between meetings – all beautifully integrated into the sumptuous and comfortable cabin which takes Bentley’s craftsmen and women over 170 hours to create.
The New Bentley Mulsanne Executive Interior Specification
The Bentley Mulsanne rear passengers receive individual Apple iPad workstations with full internet access (integrated into retractable picnic tables) whilst a large, drop-down LED screen ensures that a wide selection of movies as well as television can also be enjoyed.
Renowned for its painstaking attention to detail, Bentley has added a range of finishing touches including a Tibaldi fountain pen from its specially commissioned collection which is hand-veneered to match the veneer in the car and is discretely stowed in the centre armrest. For the first time on a Bentley, a distinctive Yachting-style veneer, which blends light and dark contrasting tones, features throughout the cabin.
Chris Buxton, Regional Director for Bentley Middle East, said: “Many customers use their time in the Mulsanne to keep on top of their business commitments or simply take a few moments to relax. This fully functioning specification highlights the Mulsanne’s potential to help busy executives to communicate effectively and quickly whilst travelling. As you would expect from Bentley, all these features work in harmony with the handcrafted cabin and can be displayed or hidden at the user’s discretion.”
Key entertainment and business features include two electric-powered, foldable wood veneer picnic tables in the rear cabin, each with Apple iPad and Apple Bluetooth keyboards. The ipads provide access, via an on-board wireless router, to email and social media, web browsing, interactive gaming and video calls (where network speeds allow). An Apple Mini Mac stored in an electrically-deployed boot compartment allows TV, movies or office software to be displayed on the 15.6 inch monitor. An iPod acts as a control panel in the rear console. A 15.6 inch High Definition LED dropdown monitor from the roof of the Mulsanne plays videos (from DVD on-board Bentley hard drive, SD card and Mac Mini) and allows the passenger to watch television.
Bespoke control keys on the rear console operate picnic tables, reading lights, control HD LED screen and select video and audio options. The rear armrest houses the Tibaldi pen and a Privacy Telephone handset as standard while an optional extra is the bespoke bottle cooler in the rear centre console keeping drinks cold behind an illuminated, double-glazed glass door.
The Mulsanne is a pure example of the Grand Touring Bentley, combining coach-built elegance and hand crafted luxury with immense power and sportiness that together offer the world’s most exclusive driving experience. In an era of mass production, it stands at the pinnacle of British luxury motoring.
With a 0-60 mph sprint time of just 5.1 seconds (0-100 km/h in 5.3 seconds) and a top speed of 184 mph (296 km/h) the 505 bhp (512 PS/377 kw) Mulsanne, with its class-leading torque of 1020Nm, has always offered thunderous levels of performance for an ultra-luxury sedan.
The Mulsanne’s beautifully balanced proportions convey a unique sense of dynamism and movement. These are reinforced by muscular haunches and sharply sculpted, gracefully flowing lines, hinting at the phenomenal levels of power and torque that are in reserve at all times.
In common with all Bentley vehicles, customers of the Executive Interior Specification have the opportunity to create a truly bespoke car from a palette of over 100 paint colours, a class-leading choice of unbleached premium quality veneers and marquetry options and a selection of 25 leather hides.
The Mulsanne Executive Interior Specification is now available to order through Bentley Showrooms throughout the Middle East.
