The Bentley Mulsanne is a performance car produced from 1980 until 1992. The name 'Mulsanne' is derived from Bentley's famous racing pedigree, which included five victories at the 24 Hours du Mans between 1924 and 1930 - the 'Mulsanne Straight' being the stretch of the Le Mans race circuit where cars reach their highest speeds. The new Mulsanne promised to epitomise the spirit of Bentley motoring by offering ample performance combined with complete comfort. The Mulsanne shared the traditional 6750cc Rolls-Royce V8 engine. SU carburettors were replaced by Bosch fuel injection on all cars from 1986. After some seven years in production the Mulsanne was 'freshened up' in 1987 with the introduction of the Mulsanne S. Normally aspirated, this model had many features of the Turbo R including the alloy wheels and interior.
 
This delightful Bentley Mulsanne S has had only three former keepers and has been in the care of the current keeper since May 1997. Having covered less than 1000 miles in the last six years, the vendor feels it is time for his beloved Mulsanne S to be re-homed. With 13 main dealer stamps in the service book, the mileage of 56,800 appears to be correct and the condition of this Bentley is commensurate with such a low mileage example. Finished in Rhapsody with navy leather and sheepskin rugs, A15KAH is further enhanced aesthetically by the fitment of a chrome grill. We are informed that this Bentley drives exactly as she should although we are advised that the fuel guage does not work. Supplied with a V5 registration document, a full year's MoT test certificate and original service books, this fine example drives with style, comfort and purpose.

Interested parties should satisfy themselves as to the description and condition of each lot prior to the sale. Buyers are advised to inspect the car in person or use a professional to carry out this service.
