The new Bentley Mulsanne has won the ‘Best Limousine for the Red Carpet’ prize at the glittering Gulf Connoisseur Awards ceremony, held at the Armani Hotel in Dubai. Bentley’s new flagship car was chosen as the winner over the Maybach 57 and the Rolls Royce Phantom.
The Gulf Connoisseur Awards are decided by a panel of six judges, and set out to recognise the very best in outstanding luxury products. The panel chooses from a small group of nominations in each of the various categories, which range from jewellery and fashion to private jets and exotic destinations.
“Bentley is really happy to receive this award from Gulf Connoisseur,” said Chris Buxton, Bentley Director for Middle East, Africa and India. “The car has been incredibly well received since its launch earlier this year and this is further confirmation of our efforts in producing the very best in luxury motoring.”
The new Mulsanne, designed and engineered at Crewe from the ground-up, reaffirms the marque’s intent to create a new flagship Bentley with refined performance, unparalleled levels of interior luxury and coach building skills to the fore.
“In the category of Limousines for the Red Carpet, the new Mulsanne from Bentley has proved to be a powerful and elegant driver’s car,” said K.N.Ned, Sales & Marketing Director, Gulf Connoisseur. “The all-new Bentley flagship sets new standards in terms of comfort, effortless performance and hand-crafted refinement. No other carmaker can offer such a blend of performance and refinement in a single vehicle.”
Bentley has already received a large amount of orders for the new Mulsanne in the UAE, with the 2011 model already sold out. The new car will be available in the country from December 2010.
