Lot details

Registration No: B10 DGH
Chassis No: SCBZS00A3LCH32688
MOT: July 2022

  • 56,000 recorded miles and just 3 former keepers
  • Offered with book pack, handbooks and service book
  • Finished in Royal Blue with Parchment hide leather interior

This lovely looking example is finished in Royal Blue with Parchment hide complemented by blue piping with a sheepskin over rugs and has covered just c.56,000 miles in the hands of three former keepers. In the previous ownership for some twenty years, B10 DGH has clearly been well maintained, with 18 stamps (mostly main dealers) shown in the service record up to 53,000 miles. Offered with its book pack, handbooks and service book and a current MoT to 22nd July 2022, this comfortable and capable Mulsanne S rides on correct specification Avon Turbospeed tyres and is said to be “a superb example of this model”.

Styled in-house by Austrian born Fritz Feller, the Bentley Mulsanne had somewhat less fussy lines than its T2 predecessor. Introduced in 1980, its greater road presence masked a larger glass area. While it looked suitably imposing from the outside, internally it proved pleasantly airy. Although, based on the Shadow/T2 floor plan, the Mulsanne offered considerable improvements in both ride and handling thanks to its new Girling automatic ride-height control and gas shock absorbers. Copious amounts of sound deadening combined with the finest quality upholstery kept intrusion from the 6.75-litre V8 engine and three-speed automatic transmission to a muted hush unless the model's full 120mph potential was explored. Driver inputs were minimised with power-assisted steering and disc brakes. Launched in October 1987, the Mulsanne 'S' benefited from firmer, more sporting suspension and a new centre console design (the latter feature donated by the Turbo R). Fitted with alloy wheels as standard, the new model gained quad headlamps in September 1988. Only in production for five years, a mere 909 standard wheelbase cars are thought to have been made.
