The Bentley Mulsanne Vision is little more than a concept sketch to all of us so far, but that doesn’t stop us from using our imagination in creating it. We passed the sketch off to our talented rendering artist and he came back with a full scale image of what we think the Mulsanne Vision will look like.
Much like the current Mulsanne, the Vision model will boast the signature circular headlights and marker lights up front. It will also boast the same pronounced hood as the base sedan model that it’s derived from. One large difference on the front end of our rendered Vision and the current Mulsanne is that the lower grille in the Vision is open instead of grated.
As you continue down the front of the car, the Vision Mulsanne shows the same signature styling of the current Mulsanne sedan. The differences really come once you hit the doors. The Mulsanne Vision is, of course, a convertible model and features just a pair of doors, as opposed to the Mulsanne’s typical four doors and hard top. Short of those differences, the doors boast almost identical styling.
Once you reach the rear quarter panel, you catch a few more refinements given to the Mulsanne Vision to make it more muscular looking than its 4-door version. The body line that goes over the wheel arch on the sedan version shows elegance, whereas the Vision model shows some added aggression, as the body line starts lower on the quarter panel and swoops upward before sweeping toward the rear of the car, toward the ground, then back toward the rear of the wheel arch.
We are still unsure what’s under the hood of this massive drop-top, but we all assume that it will carry a 12-cylinder engine, as Bentley is reportedly killing off its 6.75-liter turbocharged V-8 engine.
We’ll keep you updated on the 2013 Mulsanne Vision and get you some official images and information as soon as possible, so stay tuned!
