We first saw the new Bentley Mulsanne from the side, approaching from the back. It seemed like a typical Bentley until we turned the corner and were caught by the surprising glare of the massive headlights. In person, they grab you and don't let go. This luxury beast holds a 6.75-liter V8 that produces 505 horsepower and an absurd 752 pound feet of torque. Starting at $296,000, you can also get the Mulliner package for $15,750, which includes 21-inch MDS wheels, Bentley Flying 'B' wing vents and a diamond-quilted, leather-trimmed cabin with driver-selectable sport-tuned suspension and steering.
