September 21, 2012 at 09:28

Today we will look at one extraordinary fight in which we will see how new vehicles of the extra premium class will fight with each other. Even though the fight will resemble the beating with white gloves it is still quite interesting to see which players we have in such a high league. Therefore let’s greet and welcome our contestants for today, we have at one side of the ring new 2012 Bentley Mulsanne model and on the other side of our small ring the 2012 Jaguar XJ.

These two models will for sure be characterized by the high price. Though we didn’t expect that new Bentley will get as high as the price tag of at least 290,000. This is even the promotion price. New Jaguar in turn will cost you two times less, as its price level is about $111,300. Though the difference under the hood is also great. New Bentley got for itself a new 6.75-Liter V8 with 16 valves, that produces 505-horsepower at the 4200 level of torque. At the same time new Jaguar got the 5.0-Liter V8 with 32 valves and goes as far as 510-horsepower at 6000 level of torque. New Bentley with its greater volume is less economic, as it goes to 11 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway, new Jaguar in turn is about 4 mpg further.

So in the end we can see that new Jaguar is much more responsive, but Bentley is a true classis of extra-luxury… So we still vote for Bentley, what would you say?
