There's a new version of the Bentley Mulsanne that costs no less than $2.55 million. How come you've never heard about it?
Bentley has long been associated with the Mulliner moniker, having comissioned the centuries-old company to design the coachwork for many of its original road cars. In the modern sense, Mulliner is an official department of Bentley, in charge of crafting customized vehicles for those buyers who want something more bespoke than what's on offer from the automaker's standard product line. Their latest creation is the Bentley Mulsanne Mulliner Driving Specification, the first time that the Mulliner name has been applied to Bentley's new flagship sedan.
While much of the Mulsanne remains the same including the twin-turbo 6.75-liter twin-turbo V8, it's the small touches that set the Mulliner Driving Specification apart. The interior gets unique features such as 'Flying B' wing vents and special diamond-quilted leather seats and trim that uses an improved perforation process. The exterior is set apart with new lightweight 21-inch aluminum wheels available in painted or polished finishes as well as subtle Mulliner badging on the front fenders. Customers can also choose from a dizzying array of 100 exterior paint colors and 22 interior leather colors. Finally, a new 'Sport' setting allows the driver to select a suspension and steering setup for improved handling and feedback.
The Bentley Mulsanne Mulliner Driving Specification will be making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month alongside the standard Mulsanne that receives a few new options for 2013.

If you have to to work while being shuttled in the back seat of a car, it's hard to find a more comfortable mobile office than a Bentley Mulsanne. Still, all of that luxury won't aid you in spell-checking TPS reports as you're more likely to be lulled to sleep. Bentley has a new interior concept that will keep you alert, awake, connected and running the show like the boss you truly are.
It's called the Mulsanne Executive Interior Concept, and it's way nicer than your office. No, not the office of the person who can afford the car, specifically your office. The British builder of luxuriously exotic automobiles has put together an interior fit for a constantly connected king, which comes complete with a list of items to make sure whatever task at hand is finished before leaving the coddling confines of the Mulsanne.
Rear passengers will enjoy the power-folding wood veneer picnic tables that drop from the backs of the front seats. The tables are home to separate iPad work stations, each of which includes a Bluetooth wireless keyboard. Keeping that iPad and keyboard combo in check is a Mac Mini mounted in the trunk. The Apple product brigade is joined by an iPod that can play music but also serves as the remote control for the rear seat information and entertainment devices. A telephone is nestled into the armrest alongside a Tibaldi pen. If you're not familiar with the Tibaldi brand of writing instruments, just know that prices range from way-too-much-for-a-pen to worth-more-than-the-car-you-drive. Regardless, we're sure it takes beautiful notes that pertain to the morning meeting, which you attended from the back of your super luxury sedan.
Once the work is done, you can kick back and relax while watching your company's stock rise on the ticker rolling across the drop-down 15.6-inch high-definition LCD. It's mounted on the ceiling and is the perfect tool to stop the driver from sneaking glances at you and your secretary.
