Description

2001 BENTLEY CONTINENTAL T MULLINER 420+ HP TURBOCHARGED SHORT WHEELBASE #1CX67517 15,970 TWO OWNER MILES

The 7th of only 13 built, this exceptionally elegant example is finished Silver Pearl with Stratos hides piped Slate and nicely optioned with particularly beautiful walnut veneers, extra cost optional chrome wheels, wrapover waistrails with stainless steel Black enamel Flying B logo inserts, twin Bentley umbrellas to the trunk, chrome instrument bezels and embroidered marque emblems to the headrests. It has has happily never suffered damage or abuse since its delivery to Southern California 15,970 miles ago.

In our opinion, it is in every respect as close to new as anyone could reasonably expect a seventeen year old car to be. As per our policies, it has been carefully serviced and prepared for the enjoyment of its next keeper. The tires shown in the photos are original and should be replaced. We will be happy to provide our recommendations.

By 2001, the Mulliner package included increased horsepower output, widened stance and Mulliner tuned suspension for enhanced handling, drilled alloy brake and gas pedals and Mulliner badging. These special factory hot rods managed the difficult combination of sophistication and remarkable performance in a manner unrivaled by few if any automobiles since.

The limited series of large high speed touring Coupes produced by the company 2001-2003 are regarded by many enthusiasts (including ourselves) as perhaps the finest Bentleys ever built, the last modern day classics before the management changeover to more numerous automated mass produced automobiles.
