The 2019 Bentley Mulsanne Convertible Will be Made

The 2019 Bentley Mulsanne Convertible is back on track. The Mulsanne brand is one of the most interestingly designed versions of all the Bentley vehicles and it already has a very secure fan base. When a cabrio version of the Mulsanne was announced in 2015 and came with some follow up pictures of how it might look, all the fans were happy to see this finally come in motion. But due to the CEO changes the project was scrapped and the convertible version was not made. But now the 2019 Bentley Mulsanne Convertible is back on track and announced for a future release.

The Bentley Mulsanne was first made in 2010 and came as a replacement for the Arnage car. It was actually a revival of a nameplate which the company has used before for the period from 1980 to 1992. It was actually the largest Bentley vehicle when it came out and it even managed to surpass the Flying Spur model in its length. But what makes the Mulsanne interesting is its styling as it is the only car from the Bentley’s lineup which uses its own, unique language design instead of basing in on the Continental model. The brand was reworked in 2013 and it also spawned a number of special edition and performance orientated versions as well.

The base Mulsanne model is supposed to be sold for a period of at least three years more, so it was only obvious that the next innovation that they could bring to the fans is the cabrio version. For now it is not officially confirmed when the release date is supposed to be but there are rumors that say that the convertible will be a limited edition model which will come at a higher price than the base version.

Here are all the known details in our review.

When is the Release Date for the 2019 Bentley Mulsanne Convertible?

We do not have an exact time table on when the 2019 Bentley Mulsanne Convertible would appear, but there are a lot of statements coming out from Bentley recently. They are hoping to make this car as a limited version and will probably design it and make it available by 2019. More about the release date will be released once other details are determined.

Estimated Price of the 2019 Bentley Mulsanne Convertible

This 2019 Bentley Mulsanne Convertible is not going to be a cheap vehicle and if it does get to be offered as a special edition model it might actually be priced beyond our initial suspicions. It was even said that only 20 units will be built which are going to be sold to a handful of people at a price of £1 million per unit, which translates to $1.4 million. This is considerably high, particularly if we take into account that the sedan version costs only $300,000.

Potential Exterior Look of the 2019 Bentley Mulsanne Convertible

The rendering that we have received of the 2019 Bentley Mulsanne Convertible makes it pretty much similar to Grand Convertible concept. This is a good starting point for Bentley as they already have a basis with which they could start their project and it will only require them to make a few modifications here and there. The front end of the car sees the standard front fascia of the Mulsanne sedan replaced with fascia with a long wheelbase seen in the 2017 Mulliner sedan. The drop-top will be made using Bentley’s bespoke arm and it will probably get the same kind of a front par and that way help it stand out among your standard Mulsanne car.

The convertible will get a stylish grille which boasts a chrome frame and the newly added vertical slats. The grill will still stretch for the whole length of the front end but this till will be split into two and will help the car look more elegant. The rear end will see the drop-top retaining the Mulsanne’s familiar look. This will include vertical taillights, some chrome additions made in the bumper and the hunched trunk lid. The side view of the car will make it a completely different model thanks to the configuration with two doors, different rear fenders and a shorter wheelbase.

Potential Interior Appearance

It is highly possible that the interior of the 2019 Bentley Mulsanne Convertible copies the majority of the one witnessed in the sedan version. We also will not be surprised to see some additions from the Grand Convertible. We are looking forward to seeing bright-blue inserts and Sequin Blue stitching, 14 versions of natural leather and layouts with diamond quilting which are now present on the seats as well as the door panels.

You will probably be allowed to select an interior color based on the array of offered ones so you customize your car based on your liking. Some other very exclusive features include a Burr walnut trim featured on the dash and the upper portion of the door panels and also on rear deck, and finally a very specific instrument cluster which adds a number of unique elements to it. Generally speaking, this 2019 Bentley Mulsanne Convertible is bound to be in the top echelon of luxury cars.

Powertrain Options and Ability

We are fairly certain that the 2019 Bentley Mulsanne Convertible will transfer the engine and use the familiar twin-turbo, 6.75-liter V-8 engine as in the base Mulsanne. But we actually expect that the version from the Mulsanne Speed is used so the output may amount to as much as 530 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque, which is 25 horses and 59 pound-feet additionally compared to the base version of the sedan.

2019 Bentley Mulsanne Convertible Top Speed and 0-60 mph

Based on the specs of the engine the 2019 Bentley Mulsanne Convertible is predicated to have some pretty advanced acceleration rates. If they do incorporate the engine that they plan it will allow the car to reach 0-60 mph in exactly 4.8 seconds and allow it to reach a top speed of 190 mph. This is going to be possible due to the changed dimensions of the car.

How might the Fuel Economy Change?

For now we really do not have any information about the changes for the fuel economy of the 2019 Bentley Mulsanne Convertible. It is predicated that due to the smaller size of this car we get better numbers when it comes to the consumption of fuel for the 2019 Bentley Mulsanne Convertible. The base model has an EPA rating of 11 mpg city drive and 16 mpg highway.

Changes in the Size

As it was expected, the Bentley Mulsanne Convertible for 2019 will change its shape a bit compared to the base sedan model. The Mulsanne is the biggest and longest Bentley in the lineup but the convertible will not follow the same path. The wheelbase is going to be shorter and the overall length of the car is also going to be lesser. It will make this car more suitable for its convertible design.

Safety Specification

It is more than probable that the 2019 Bentley Mulsanne Convertible will transfer the majority of the safety characteristics from the base sedan model. The sedan is already a good and secure model so it will be great for this model to continue the same. Some added equipment will be nice so as to accommodate the high pricing of this version.

Competition Cars

Although this is a special edition model, the 2019 Bentley Mulsanne Convertible will still face some competition cars on established on the market. They include the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe which is perhaps one of the more exclusive models seen on the market now.
