The Bentley Mulsanne was produced from 1980 until 1992, although derivative models such as the Continental T and Azure continued in production into the next century. The name 'Mulsanne' is derived from Bentley's famous history, which included five victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans between 1924 and 1930 - the 'Mulsanne Straight' being the stretch of the Le Mans racecourse where cars reach their highest speeds. The company's traditional policy on appropriateness of change was reflected in developing the Bentley Mulsanne by phasing in major technological advances into the Bentley Mulsanne S. Firmer suspension enhanced the Bentley Mulsanne S's road holding and interior features from the Bentley Turbo R were also incorporated. Light alloy wheels were used for the first time on the basic model in the Bentley range. The 1989 model year (being introduced in September 1988) saw the broad one-piece headlamps replaced with twin headlamps.
This fine 1989 Bentley Mulsanne S is finished in light blue with matching dash board top and carpets, while the leather interior is in cream piped in light blue. The car has a full service history with recent works carried out by Silver Lady Services Ltd in Dorset, and the extensive history file contains every single MoT test certificate issued and invoices from the said company. This Bentley is also supplied with a V5C registration document and a new MoT test certificate. All Rolls-Royce and Bentley motor cars from this period were the height of luxury and comfort in comparison to cars of today which makes these grand tourers excellent value for money.
