1989 'G' Bentley Mulsanne S, 1 previous owner and just 22,000 miles

This is a wonderful 2 owner example which has covered just 22,000 miles with supporting history, the service records detailing previous maintenance at 3480, 5551, 13744, 20762, 21376 and 21745 miles. In addition to the stamped service book we have a collection of further invoices detailing work carried out, old MOT's, SORN notifications from VOSA and the original purchase invoice in the sum of 76,420.64.

The original owner was the Managing Director of Jenkins Group Holdings Ltd. and had access to several other vehicles hence the Bentley was little used from new. The car was retained by the original owner until 2011, at which time the car had been SORN for several years and had covered just 19,700 miles. The second owner was an elderly enthusiast who used the vehicle mainly to attend car shows, covering only 2,500 miles during his tenure. The gentleman was very proud of the fact that the Bentley has won "best in show" on more than one occasion. The car was very reluctantly parted with due to imminent re-location.

The condition of the car is truly exceptional with both bodywork and interior in excellent order, the car belies it's age showing minimal signs of use. The Bentley has been garaged from new, we are told the car has never seen rain and we can well believe it. The car was stored beneath a tailored car cover - which is included in the sale - which has prevented any UV damage or fading of the paintwork or interior, the whole car in remarkable order throughout. Behind the wheel the car behaves impeccably and drives like only a low mileage car can, everything very tight and responsive, no slop in the steering and the ride being superbly controlled. The steering on these earlier cars is beautifully light yet precise, we lament the modern trend towards heavier steering which we feel does not suit these cars at all. The Jenkins Group own a large chain of Motor Car Dealerships and after inspecting this car we are very confident that the vehicle has received far more attention over the years than the service records appear to demonstrate, everything works exactly as Bentley intended and the car is one of the sweetest driving examples we have ever owned.

With only 970 cars built in total ( approx 50% in left hand drive ), the Mulsanne S is one of the rarest SZ models and this car is easily among the very best remaining.

 Finished in beautiful Balmoral green with barely a blemish to be found, the interior is trimmed in parchment hide piped green with green top roll, parchment bottom roll and lighter green carpets which are protected by matching lambs wool over rugs, all in quite superb order and clearly little used. The steering wheel is trimmed in green leather to complement the upholstery. The front storage cubby is fitted with a drinks requisite with the original flasks and crystal present. The rear compartment furnished with footstools, vanity mirrors and reading lights.

Specification of the period to include electric seats with memories, split level climate control air conditioning, period Sony stereo with boot mounted CD changer, cruise control, town and country horns, electric windows front and rear, electric mirrors, central locking, headlamp washers, trip odometer, 15 inch Mulsanne alloy wheels with matching Avon Turbospeed tyres all round.

Supplied with all original keys, original book pack containing owners manuals, stamped service book, "introduction to your Bentley cassette tape", tailored Bentley car cover etc.

The vehicle will be supplied with a new MOT with no advisory notices, current MOT May 2018.

This is an exceptional low mileage, low ownership example which are becoming increasingly difficult to find and is sure to provide a huge amount of enjoyment to the next custodian.
