The Mulsanne Speed, Bentley's latest flagship vehicle, is now even faster, more fuel-efficient and generally better than its already amazing predecessor.

The Mulsanne Speed is equipped with a 6.75-liter twin-turbo V8 engine just like its predecessor. It has a reworked powertrain capable of pumping out 811 pounds-feet of torque, nearly 300 pounds-feet more than the previous model. It produces horsepower close to 530. These specs allow the car to zoom from a stationary position to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds, and attain a top speed of 305 km/h.

Despite these excellent specs, the Mulsanne Speed manages to also be highly fuel-efficient. The vehicle is also fitted with a ZF 8-speed gearbox with wheel-mounted paddleshifters that can provide increased power as and when required.

Like what you see? If you have $413,000 to spare, this might be the vehicle for you.
