1989 Bentley Mulsanne S
3 owner car with just 23000 miles
This is a wonderful 3 owner example which has covered just 23000 miles with supporting history, service records detailing previous maintenance. In addition to the stamped service book there is a collection of further invoices detailing work carried out, old MOTs, SORNs and TAX and tax discs from VOSA. Also included is original purchase invoice from Merlin Cambria Ltd, Cardiff, for sum of £76,420.64
The original owner was 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 19700 miles. The second owner was an elderly enthusiast who used the vehicle mainly to attend car shows, covering only 2500 miles during his ownership. The gentleman was very proud of the fact his Bentley had won “best in show” on a number of occasions. The car was very reluctantly parted with due to imminent re-location. The vehicle was purchased by the 3rd owner a car enthusiast with a collection of 6 vehicles from Southams Classic Car Warehouse, a family owned Rolls Royce and Bentley specialists business for over 30 years. The car was purchased on 17/7/2018 with 22461 miles. It was given a service and vehicle check by the Franchised Bentley dealer in Northern Ireland on 16th October 2018
with an invoice for £2720 for work carried out at 22799 miles. Unfortunately the owner passed away early 2019 and the collection of vehicles sold off from his estate. The car has now 23020 miles and a Full years MOT.
The condition of the car is totally immaculate with both bodywork and interior in excellent condition, the car belies it’s age showing minimal signs of use. The Bentley has been garaged from new. The car drives and behaves impeccably like only a low mileage car can, everything is tight and responsive, the steering is beautifully light yet precise.
Finished in beautiful Balmoral green with barely a blemish, the interior is trimmed in parchment hide piped green with green top rail, parchment bottom rail. Lighter green carpets which are protected by matching lambs wool over rugs, all in quite superb condition and clearly little use. The steering wheel is trimmed in green leather to complement the upholstery. The front storage cubby is fitted with a drinks requisite with original with the original flasks and crystal present, the rear compartment furnished with footstools, vanity mirrors and reading lights.
All original keys, original book pack containing owners manuals, stamped service book, “introduction to your Bentley cassette tapes” present with car.
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 owner. 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.
