Holding the promise to deliver “the fastest ultra-luxury driving experience in the world”, the new Mulsanne variant comes in four new exterior colors - Candy Red, Spectre, Camel and Marlin. The car features a dark tint finish on the radiator grille, lower bumper grilles and wing vents. Also on the menu are a set of new 21-inch wheels, that come in painted, polished and dark tint with machined accent finishes.

The colours, veneers and trims are revisited with the door panels and seats receiving diamond quilting, a new headliner and drilled pedals wrapping up the interior changes.

Under the bonnet is an upgraded 6.75-liter V8 engine, generating 537 PS and 1,100 Nm. The revised engine catapults the Mulsanne Speed from 0-100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds with a top speed rated at 305 km/h.

The engine is equipped with cylinder deactivation technology that can run it as a V4, reducing CO2 emissions from 393 g/km to 342 g/km. The engine is mated to a revised 8-speed automatic transmission with a 'Sport' mode for faster response. In this mode, the suspension is stiffened for better body control and the steering dynamics are adjusted for more accuracy and feedback.
