Bentley reveals new Mulsanne

Here is the Bentley Mulsanne grand tourer, the company's new flagship model to replace the Arnage.

The new car was revealed at the prestigious Concours d'Elegance event in Pebble Beach, California on Sunday evening.

The Mulsanne was 'conceived, styled and engineered' entirely at Bentley's headquarters in Crewe.

Dr. Franz-Josef Paefgen, chairman and chief executive of Bentley Motors, said: 'The challenge we set our engineers was to create a new grand Bentley that would stand as the pinnacle of British luxury motoring, offering the world's most exclusive driving experience.

'They have responded to this challenge with real passion and the result is a luxury grand tourer that sets new standards in terms of comfort, effortless performance and hand-crafted refinement the very qualities for which Bentley is renowned.'

Sales of the Mulsanne start next year. More details will be announced at the Frankfurt motor show next month.
