A recent test drive of the Bentley Mulsanne proved that the powerful, elegant beast's 'Naim for Bentley' sound system can shake you to the core. The Bentley Mulsanne's 20-speaker, 2,200-watt sound system with eight dedicated Digital Signal Processing units makes the car a ready replacement for concert attendance.

The Bentley Mulsanne is the perfect car for hip hop, opera, orchestral choral music, and oddly enough pop-country. Go figure. Each flavor of music brings out another facet of the Bentley driving experience -- from refined class to crassly conspicuous consumption to ironic enjoyment.
