Bentley’s mighty 6¾-litre twin-turbo V8 engine propels the Mulsanne Speed to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.9 seconds) and on to a top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h), whilst modern exterior and interior bespoke styling features define the Mulsanne Speed as a statement in quintessential British luxury.
Bentley Inspirator: A Journey Through Personalisation
Visitors to the Bentley stand can also experience the Bentley Inspirator for the first time.
Using a device’s camera function, the application’s facial and emotion recognition software measures expressions on the user’s face as they react to a variety of emotional and evocative imagery.
These reactions are then interpreted by the app and a bespoke Bentley for that customer is configured, providing ideas and suggestions for tailored options based on their needs, tastes and preferences.
