It costs as much as a house

That irrefutable royalty-of-the-road feeling comes at a cost, of course. And of course, as the saying goes, if you have to ask, you can't afford it. But since you did, the "base" Mulsanne comes in at $285,000 plus $2,585 for destination and handling. Given a customer's proclivities toward individualism and/or exotic materials, that price can shoot past the $300K mark without checking too many boxes. Yes, there are fine cars that cost less than 10 percent of that amount that will get a person there in perfect comfort and safety. But few, if any, combine the attributes above at such a high level. We guess that's what they mean by "Pure Bentley."
