A Mulsanne is handcrafted at Bently's home office in England by a team of highly skilled artisans over 400 hours. Beneath the Mulsanne bonnet lie a 6¾ liter, a twin-turbocharged V8 engine which produces 505 bhp (377 kW / 512 PS) at 4,200 rpm and up to 1,020 Nm (752 lb.ft) of torque at 1,750 rpm. The Mulsanne can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.1 seconds (0 -100 km/h in 5.3 seconds) with a top speed of 184 mph (296 km/h). Within a four-door luxury car, these performance figures set the industry standard a blaze. Cutting-edge engine technology comes with competitive emissions (C02 of 342g/km) and fuel consumption (18.8mpg). Within the cabin, innovative noise absorber technology within the tires reduces peak rolling noise by 50%. The Mulsanne’s powerful V8 engine has been quieted by 25 decibels, utilizing a closed loop system using active cancellation of vibration.
The exterior was redesigned with a new imposing front end dominated by a large stainless steel vertical-vane grille. The suite of exterior changes provides the Mulsanne with a more modern yet sophisticated appearance. The world’s finest handcrafted wood, leather, metal fittings, new door trims and armrests, unique glass switchgear and an industry-leading palette of 24 exquisite hide colors, and so much more dwell within every Mulsanne.
While other automobile manufacturers focus on speed, gizmos, and gadgets, the Phantom stands independently as the most celebrated luxury item in the world. Those who demand the luxury of privacy understand why it made the list. The Phantom earned the title of “The Best Car in the World” during their global launch on the shores of Lake Lucerne due to balancing functionality and style without compromising space and comfort of rear passengers.
Rolls-Royce integrated luxury with technology through electrochromic glass which allows front and rear cabins to be visually separate at the touch of a button. The rear occupant is offered the option to see through the glass on to the road ahead or to instantly transform the glass to opaque, providing a highly sophisticated and absolute level of privacy. The privacy suite offers a leap forward in sound absorption in a motor car which already is hailed as the quietest in the world, delivering the highest possible levels of acoustic insulation. Rear privacy curtains have also been added allowing full closure of the side and rear window as well as Rear Privacy Glass, extending discretion when the curtains are open.
In addition, a Bespoke rear theatre entertainment system was integrated into the Privacy Suite, which includes two high definition 12-inch monitors linked to the motor car’s suite of fully connected software as well as an HDMI port that allows passengers to synchronize their highly secure personal devices. This complex execution of craftsmanship and technology is deployed and controlled from the center console and, combined with Starlight Headliner and Bespoke Clock, creating a peerless ambiance for passengers.
The newly updated S-Class sedan is the undisputed leader in the premium segment with regards to comfort and wellness. The new standard in the interior was set with the new generation of dual 12.3" high-resolution displays with a single bonded glass panel, new trim options, and new upholstery offerings. The S-Class sedan takes another big step toward the future of autonomous driving and elevates Intelligent Drivel. For example, activate the distance assist Distronic system and steering assist now provide even more support for the driver to keep a safe distance and steer. The speed is now adjusted automatically ahead of curves or junctions.
Modern luxury in the new S-Class is clearly evident with the impressive quality of materials and workmanship, fitted with a new grille. The six and eight-cylinder engines sport three twin louvers as well as vertical strips with a high-gloss black finish. All models are fitted with a redesigned lower bumper section with an integrated visible tailpipe trim. The tailpipes are framed by a chrome trim element, which spans the entire width of the vehicle. Two new 20" alloy wheels are also available. The interior of the new S-Class is characterized by two, new high-resolution displays, each with a screen diagonal of 12.3 inches. Visually, the two displays under one shared glass cover blend into a wide-screen cockpit; this central element consequently emphasizes the horizontal orientation of the interior design.
The newly redesigned S-Class features touch control buttons on the steering wheel which responds to swiping motions like the screen of a smartphone and enables the driver to control the entire multimedia system without having to take their hands off the steering wheel. The multimedia system can also operate via the touchpad with a controller in the center console and by Voice Control.
