There is an easy way to sum up what it's like to drive the 2017 Bentley Mulsanne Speed super car: it causes all sorts of out of the body experiences. First is the experience of sitting in the extra plush couch-like Bentley embroidered front and rear seats, which makes you realize your couch at home is very inferior. Time to buy a new one, fast! Then there is the endless shiny chrome accents throughout the car, which serve as a reminder that you made it in life. Shout out to hard work. And finally is the smooth driving experience that reaffirms you have sadly wasted years behind the wheel of unacceptable autos. Time goes so fast! If Bentley wanted to remind people -- from car review snobs to its ultra rich clientele -- that it still produces mostly handcrafted autos, then the 2017 Mulsanne Speed certainly delivered on that covert mission. And given the hefty price tag and a Bentley nameplate that is known for making high class rolling toys, it had to deliver. The 2017 Bentley Mulsanne Speed is priced at over $400,000 with all the bells whistles such as 10.4 inch removable touchscreen Android-powered tablets and backseat champagne chiller (with three crystal flutes included, of course). The luxury super-car boasts an extra quiet 6.75 litre V8 engine that pumps out a heart-pounding 530 horsepower with ease. That impressive power-plant rockets the Mulsanne Speed from 0 to 60 mph in about 4.8 seconds. Top speed for this beast of a a four-door 6,200 pound luxury auto: an eye-watering 190 mph, not too far removed from the new two-door Ferrari GTCLusso that reportedly tops out at 208 mph.
