Description

French registration

- No reserve
- A very luxurious model
- Comfortable, with high performance capabilities

Of French provenance, this car was purchased in February 2013 by its current owner, an enthusiast of exceptional British car, from Americo-Automobiles. This is where the car has been maintained since. The meter now shows 176,000km and the car, with its champagne exterior has beautiful beige leather inside. The wooden dashboard has a modern Kenwood car stereo, the original Blaupunkt radio also comes with the car, as well as its user manual. A test drive in Paris with the owner showed that the car runs satisfactorily, though there may be an oil leak from the power steering system.
For the British, "Mulsanne" is the name given to the famous Mulsanne straight at the Le Mans circuit, which says a lot about the personality that Bentley wanted to assign to this model. Equipped with a powerful 6.75-liter V8, it came with a luxurious equipment that would welcome someone paying as much as French Francs 832,000 those days, which was twice that of a Ferrari 400i then.
