It's the all-new Grand Bentley, or at least that's what we knew it. Bentley took the covers off of their latest Mulsanne, at the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance in Monterey, California. So where does the Mulsanne fit in Bentley's lineup? Well, for starters, the 2011 Bentley Mulsanne is the replacement for the beloved Arnage. What's more, Bentley say that this Mulsanne is a classic revival of the 1930 Bentley 8-Liter.Desgin:
First to catch the eye on the 2011 Bentley Mulsanne is the front. The new quad-circle daytime-running-light LED headlights heavily echoes the 1930 8-Liter, and they are unmistakable to any of Bentley's lineup. Outback, the rear-quarter panel is reminiscent of the Brooklands, while the taillights treatment is Continental-like. Overall, the Mulsanne showcases some Bentley heritage, with newly modern design.Official Debut At Frankfurt:
So, Bentley didn't inform us much. We don't have any pictures on the interior, but Bentley say that it will feature the usual sea of wood all-around, with some chrome-accented buttons, and a new steering-wheel. Under the hood, some sources say that it'll either be the 6.75L V8 from the predecessor Arnage, or the 6.0L W12 from the Continental. We will get more details when Bentley debuts the 2011 Mulsanne at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show in September. Nonetheless, the 2011 Bentley Mulsanne will hit showrooms in mid 2010, with prices start at around $300,000.
