Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
Where does the Mulsanne fit in terms of value for money? Well, a Mercedes-Maybach S600 is a lot cheaper, while the Rolls-Royce Phantom is considerably more expensive. Still, at this level of expenditure, you’ll probably be swayed more by image and finish than list prices.
Be prepared for extreme running costs; anyone doubting that fuelling, servicing, insuring and paying a company car tax bill on a Mulsanne will be a seriously pricey affair is seriously deluded.
