Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Bentley Mulsanne is unchanged for 2018.Unless you're regularly shuttling NBA players, there's not much need for the extended-wheelbase version. The extra $100,000 could be put to good use on the base Mulsanne by adding the Mulliner, Comfort and Entertainment specifications.
