Lot : Bentley MULSANNE

Vintage, Classic & Collectors Motor Vehicles, BCA (22 April 2008)

In the autumn of 1980, a new Bentley model range was introduced, based on the floorpan of the previous T2 Series. With attractive elegant styling by Fritz Feller, this new model was especially pleasing and very much in the modern idiom. Making its debut at the French Motor Show, the Mulsanne and its Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit counterpart were to prove most worthy successors to the previous Silver Shadow and T-Series models. The Mulsanne took its name from the famous straight at Le Mans where some half a century earlier the Bentley team had established their legendary sporting reputation. Capable of over 120mph and sumptuously equipped, the rectangular headlamps and the noble Bentley radiator grille ensured a great presence allied to dignity in the true Bentley tradition.From 1987, the non-turbo charged Mulsanne was replaced by the 'S' version with more power and it is a 1989 example of this model that is offered for sale here. Tastefully finished in Cobalt Blue with Biscuit hide with blue piping, the car is understood to have covered some 77,500 miles and to be in good all-round order.
