Following rumors earlier this month, sources have now confirmed the high-performance Bentley Mulsanne will wear the familiar Speed moniker.

Set to debut at the Paris Motor Show, the Mulsanne Speed will reportedly feature a twin-turbo 6.75-liter V8 engine that produces approximately 550 bhp (410 kW). Thanks to the extra oomph, the car is expected to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than five seconds and have a top speed of roughly 321 km/h (200 mph).

Besides the upgraded engine, we can expect a sportier suspension and a revised steering system. The car could also receive minor styling tweaks to help differentiate it from the standard model.

Unfortunately these changes won't come cheap as the Mulsanne Speed is expected to cost more than £250,000 in the United Kingdom.
