Lot 211: Bentley Mulsanne Turbo

Cars & Motorcycles, Historics at Brooklands (26 May 2012)

The Bentley Mulsanne is a performance luxury car produced from 1980 until 1992 although derivative models like the Continental T and Azure continued in production into the 2000s. The name 'Mulsanne' is derived from Bentley's famous racing history, which included five victories at the 24 Hours du Mans between 1924 and 1930 - the 'Mulsanne Straight' being the stretch of the Le Mans racecourse where cars reach their highest speeds. The new Bentley promised to epitomise the very spirit of Bentley motoring by offering ample performance combined with complete comfort. Launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1982 and produced until 1985 was the Mulsanne Turbo. There was a 50% increase in power thanks to the Garrett Airesearch turbocharger. There was the usual highly polished walnut veneered fascia, blemish-free leather and carpets and headlining of pure wool for the interior.
