Bentley Mulsanne takes luxury title

Bentley's Mulsanne has been named the 'Best Luxury Car' money can buy.

The iconic motor was awarded the title at the prestigious Telegraph Motoring Awards after receiving the most public votes.

It finished just ahead of the Continental GT and Flying Spur luxury sedan - completing a successful night for Bentley.

The British automaker has enjoyed growing sales both at home and abroad in recent years, with its models extremely popular among the rich and wealthy.

Kevin Rose, Bentley member of the board for sales, marketing and aftersales, said the honour was a tribute to the company's skilled and dedicated workforce, who make every single model by hand at its plant in Crewe.

The Bentley Mulsanne gets its name from the famous corner at the Le Mans 24 hour race, where the automaker achieved an impressive six wins. It is the firm's flagship model and can accelerate from 0-62mph in just 5.1 seconds.
