2012 Bentley Mulsanne, Expensive Bentley Options

2012 Bentley Mulsanne

This is the first in a series of blogs on the most outrageously luxurious options available on today’s new cars.

The Bentley Continental Flying Spur, Consumer Guide Associate Publisher Tom Appel said, “made me feel like a billionaire.” Unfortunately, you need to be a millionaire to afford this super-luxury vehicle. Prices range from $184,200 for the 2012 Bentley Continental Flying Spur base model to $285,000 for the 2012 Bentley Mulsanne. Of course, that’s just for starters. For both cars, you can add more than $100,000 worth of options. Examples of options (with retail price) include:
