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.
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
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
