The average model cycle is eight years, with a styling change halfway through to keep things fresh – if you're really good at facelifts, maybe a model can be stretched to 12 or 13 years. Bentley doesn't really work on the same timelines as the rest of the motoring industry, though. Forget 12 years, the V8 engine in the current Mulsanne has just turned 60.
