Bentley Mulsanne Shaheen at the Dubai Motor Show

At the 2013 edition of the Dubai Motor Show we had the occasion to see a lot of incredible cars and one of them was Benteley Mulsanne Shaheen which showed its face for the first time here, at this event. The carmaker developed the car to sell it especially for the Middle East market. Designers have been inspired from the Shaheen eagle. This is a bird of prey that founds its place in the Middle Eastern culture and society. The ones that handled the car used Tungsten over Onyx paintwork with Magnolia and Beluga leather and Dark Stained Burr Walnut Veneer for the interior. As final touches we have to mention a bespoke signature Mulsanne Shaheen logo on the rear iPad picnic tables that have a gold overlay.

To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have offered 21-inch alloy wheels and the cabin has Diamond Quilted leather trimmed cabin with driver-selectable, sports-tuned suspension and steering. Under the hood it hides a 6.75-liter V8 unit which is capable of generating up to 512 PS and 1020 Nm of torque. The new model is capable of combining coach-built elegance and hand crafted luxury with great power and sportiness that together offer a great driving experience. The manufacturer announced that global customer deliveries to the end of September have grown by 9 % this year in comparison to the last one and so the company is growing.

At the same event Bentley revealed the Flying Spur which, in case you do not know yet, is the fastest most powerful four-door Bentley model ever made. It hides a 6.0-liter, twin turbo W12 engine capable of producing 625 PS. This output enables it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds.
