522 > 443 l
With more boot size the Audi A8 D4 W12 Lang will have much more room for carrying things and be more usefull one compared with the Bentley Mulsanne 6.75 512HP. If the size of the trunk is appeals to you, the Audi will be better to choose because it is about 18 % more spacious than the boot of its competitor.


automatic > manual
A stick shift with which the Bentley Mulsanne is equipped is more simpler construction and is cheaper in use but also it is less comfortable as the driver has to operate clutch and shift gears very often, especialy in a congested urban traffic where we have lots of frequent stop and go situations. An automatic gearbox installed in the Audi A8 D4 with 8 – speeds gearbox is in our opinion better to use.

Front track

1,644 > 1,612 mm
