With the exit of Maybach from the global stage, the Bentley Mulsanne is the only direct competitor to the Rolls-Royce Phantom.
Like the Rolls-Royce, it's a German-owned example of British heritage, and like the Phantom, the Mulsanne offers similar opulence, in a similar package, at a similar price.
At this end of the market, the question isn't why should you buy the Phantom instead of the Mulsanne, but, rather, why not own both?
