Default Bentley Mulsanne in Mumbai

My friend spotted the Mulsanne in Andheri. Is it the TD car?

I think this is the demo car, and there was also a golden one spotted a while ago in Delhi which might have been brought down for the launch or it might have been a customers car.

beautiful, in true Bentley tradition. The arnage has been around for so long though, that it was an instant classic and a hit. Will be interesting to see how sales for the mulsane match up.

Even more interesting will be the drop top version...

This looks like it has a boot from the 1920's. God in one way, but somehow, the front looks a bit Chinese. But thats just me

I personally think its one of the best front designs for such a luxury car out there. The whole small/large setup vs large/small is unique and very stately..

Looking forward to seeing it on road. BTW does anyone know how much is the ex-showroom price on this beast?

I think it is somewhere around 3cr. But I may be wrong.

Yep it is the demo car from Bentley. Had seen this couple of times when it was in Mumbai. It did an India tour and is back in Delhi now I think

You are not wrong - its does give an impression of the Roewe, a Chinese car. However it might be that the Chinese were inspired by it rather than the other way round. As they say in China, we can copy everything except your mother

IMHO, I dislike everything on this car except for the badge, exhaust and rims. Other than that, it is very CHINESE!
