Victoria Premium Automobiles was home – for a short period time – to a 2014 Bentley Mulsanne. Ranked among the top five ultimate luxury sedans by Car and Driver, the Mulsanne is a leather, wood, steel and rare earth garlanded showpiece for the wealthy motorist.
It is also very powerful and very fast.
The Mulsanne has a 6.75-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine lies beneath its big bonnet. Rated at 505 horsepower and an extraordinary 752 pound-feet of torque.
However, while the power and performance is extraordinary, it is the style, comfort and prestige that keeps the Bentley enthusiasts coming back.
According to the manufacturer, 170 hours of hand-crafted construction goes into each Mulsanne's interior. This includes hand stitching the leather-covered steering wheel, fitting and finishing the exotic wood that wraps the cabin, cutting and stitching the leather upholstery and pure wool mats and carpeting.
Here are a couple of images of this fantastic example of automotive art and workmanship in front of Victoria’s Empress Hotel.
