OVERVIEW With extra legroom for rear passengers, a range of in-car entertainment choices and the option of airline-style reclining seats, the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase is an incredible car in which to travel. The ultimate in Bentley luxury, it can be considered a true home from home. MORE ROOM IN THE BACK The Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase adds 250mm of legroom in the rear, its extended rear doors making it easier to get in and out of the car in style. And with electric curtains to each of the rear windows it is the perfect mode of transport for those with the occasional need to travel incognito. AIRLINE-STYLE RECLINING SEATS Optional airline-style reclining seats give travellers in the rear the chance to relax as they might on a private jet. And the connection with flying is not one made lightly. This is the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase: the ultimate combination of speed and exquisite luxury. PANORAMIC REAR SUNROOF A tilting glass sunroof invites a cascade of daylight into the rear of the car, while an electric Alcantara blind can eliminate the glare of the sun at the touch of a button. ELONGATED CENTRAL CONSOLE An elongated central console runs the length of the cabin, its handcrafted veneers concealing a range of storage options for the comfort of rear seat passengers, alongside controls for seat heating and ventilation, the sunroof and the electric curtains built into the windows. And when it’s time to work, picnic tables fold out elegantly from within. NEW EXTERIOR DESIGN The Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase includes a number of changes to the front and the rear of the car, some of which can also be seen on the new Mulsanne and new Mulsanne Speed. The grilles, brightware, headlamp clusters and rear lamps have all been revised to give the exterior of the car a sharper, more contemporary appearance. WIDER, REDESIGNED FACE The new, wider radiator grille sits in front of the Bentley matrix, with stainless steel vertical vanes fanning out from the centre. The lower grilles have been widened in line with the front bumper, increasing the car’s road presence. NEW HEADLAMP TECHNOLOGY The design of the headlamp cluster is retained, however the outboard secondary lamps have been moved upwards to align them with the main lamps. The washers sit in the centre. The lamps themselves can operate automatically, with four light modes to cover different driving requirements: urban roads, country lanes, motorways and normal main beam. STRIKING BENTLEY FLYING ‘B’ REAR LAMPS New rear lamps glow with the three-dimensional form of a Flying ‘B’ when operated, making it clear from practically any distance that the car up ahead is a Bentley. NEW DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY Set into the sleek veneers of the dashboard, a new 8" touch screen controls the infotainment and vehicle systems, with 4G connectivity for faster response times, an improved user experience, and compatibility with Apple CarPlay. Google Maps*, satellite imagery and Street View* bring a new dimension to the navigation system, allowing the driver to see routes, junctions and destinations. Mobile phones and tablets can be connected to the car via Bluetooth, or the USB ports in either the Media Drawer or the glove box, allowing them to be charged while sharing their data. An in-car Wi-Fi hotspot provides high speed* access for eight such devices. NEW REAR SEAT ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM The optional Bentley Theatre rear seat entertainment system features twin 10.4” touch screen tablets. Deployed electrically from within the backs of the front seats, they provide access to many of the car’s systems for back seat passengers, including journey and vehicle data, games, digital music and even DVDs. Thanks to the in-car WiFi, video calling, media streaming and cloud-based services are also available. The tablets can also be removed from the car. NEW EXTERIOR COLOURS AND VENEER OPTIONS Two new wood veneer options have been added to the range: Liquid Amber and Dark Stained Madrona. New exterior paint colours include Rose Gold and Julep.

he FERRARI California is powered by a 4.3L V8 delivering 454 HP. Turn the Manettino dial to Sport and the California instantly begins breathing fire. Take control of gear shifts with the steering wheel mounted paddle shifters and the Ferrari California instantly becomes entertaining. Lower the roof and the vertically stacked exhausts reach their maximum boisterous potential in no time. The howl from the exhaust reaches a crescendo near the red-line before a shotgun like echo erupts as you change up a gear. It sounds incredible.
