The all new Bentley Mulsanne made its public debut at the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance and will go on sale from mid 2010.

We refrain ourselves from any comments on the design, because the online audience has already spoken. Here are some random quotes from various weblogs.

    "Overall shape, very Bentley. but and a big BUT, that front looks like a linger. Change it please."
    "If the badge was missing I would think: Made in China..."
    "I guess the economic downturn forced Bentley to join forces with Geely and have let them do the design."
    "Bentley's moving away from the whole pheasant shooting clientèle.... and further into mediocrity in my opinion... Porsche Cayennes are meant to be all premiership, not this kind of thing."
    "Whipe that ugly grin of your face!"
    "As for the Bentley’s front end styling, well, seventies Stutz Blackhawk anyone?"
    "Why are designers nowadays having such a hard time with car front ends? What’s with the hard-to-look-at headlights? Freed up by LEDs, the designers have simply lost their way with too much “choice” in terms of shape."
    "Those lights look like my shower drain..."

Well, enough said. We get the message. Luckily, almost instantly, many creative blog-visitors started loading the Mulsanne images into Photoshop to show the world their own modification proposals. We invite you to do the same!

How, according to you, should the new Mulsanne look when it goes on sale next year? Download the images below and get creative!

To me, the new Rolls Royce Ghost looks more attractive, but I reserve judgment until I see the Mulsanne in the flesh.

Greetings,

Here is what I did for the front view of the car. I wish that you will like it. :)

Hi Garo,

Welcome!

I kinda like the side indicators, subtle and modern.
Head lights still don't work with me though...

However, I'd like to see a more advanced design. Changing the front end may open up all new opportunities to restyle the rest of the car.

Greetings Sir,

Thank you for your warm wellcome,

It means a lot to me to receive your thoughts about my work, thank you very much. Because I like very much your designs and this year will be my first year as a car design student. I am interested a lot about the old couchbuilt cars, I find them full of inspiration, and they are a work of art and I am glad to find this forum where I find a lot of information about them.

In the Bentley design, normally I liked the overall shape of the car, and it was the headlights which were disturbing me, that is why I came up with that changes, but now that I read your comment, I will try to redesign all of it. I am saying "trying" because my rendering skills are not the best yet, to present it on a forum like this. :oops:

Kind Regards,

Garo Atmaca

I think it should have a more aristocratic look and feel. Somehow I miss that.
Also the front screams 'plastic' instead of 'craftsmenship'.

The R Type Continental does have the aristocratic look and feel and the obvious touch of craftsmenship:

Now translate that to something modern... I can't, but surely there must be someone who can?

Just for fun, I found this on the Internet (but I don't remember where…)
This sketch obviously says : "If the aim is to look outrageous, so, let's play the game to its full" ! A rival for the Pininfarina RR Hyperion ???!!!
Seriously, I agree with you : the front of this new Bentley lacks elegance and subtlety. Is it due to the safety regulations (you know, soft front impact zones). But I am sure there is a way to make things different. Look at the Maserati Quattroporte…

There are numerous ways to get this right. Plenty of good examples all over the world. I have some ideas about how to fix it, but I would be very interested to see what others may come up with.

This is not the aristocratic version of the car which you want, but I've coachbuilded it. It's a sporting-saloon version (like Panamera, A7, CLS...).
I'm not good with PC, so I use my own hands, with this result.
I hope you like it. ;)
