Bentley Mulsanne

You be the judge - is this better than the Arnage? Somehow I don't think many will think so.

It looks like a Chinese ripoff.
Sure, the Arnage was ugly too, but it had a sort of stupid awesomeness to it. This most likely will be castrated and dulled down compared to it.

Two things came to mind when I saw this car:
this

and this


neither of which are particularly good influences upon which to design a new bentley in my opinion. although it will probably weigh about as much as a train.

Also aren't those big round headlights a bit similar to the current rolls royces

Ferrer is gonna be pissed you besmirched his Arnage.

Also, could a mod just merge this with the other thread? There isn't really a reason for 2 threads.

Thumbs up

That is not the Arnage replacement. And it is definitely a hit for me.

• Car is not a replacement for Arnage. While Arnage ends production this year the Mulsanne will be positioned "at the pinnacle of the ultra-luxury segment"

I read that after I posted but I also realize it's a load of crap.

How wasn't the Arnage "at the pinnacle of the ultra-luxury segment."?

On second thought, I guess it wasn't as luxurious as a Phantom or Maybach and probably the Mulsanne isn't as well either, so it wasn't at the pinnacle before and still ain't.

I don't really agree with the press release garbage - I think this is the replacement for the Arnage and that bit about being "at the pinnacle of the ultra-luxury segment" is just marketing bullshit.

I actually like it, but it will take some getting used to.

I like the design. Maybe just a touch too googly eyed. The overall shape is very impressive though. Only other thing I'm not sure about is the exhaust pipes. Who's bright idea was it to throw those chrome tips on a train track prior to installation? With that kind of squashed shape you'd expect nothing more than a high pitched whistle to be emitted from the otherwise mighty looking lux brute. I'd have done that differently.

The shape is really nice, but the design details like the foglights, the grill, the bumpers and those side vents are simply awful. I'm not going to give up the (Rolls-Royce) Ghost for this.

Any word on what's under the hood or if it has AWD?
