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; the Mulsanne Turbo was launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1982 and produced until 1985. There was a 50% increase in power thanks to the Garrett Airesearch turbocharger while the interior featured the usual highly polished walnut veneered fascia, blemish-free leather and carpets and headlining of pure wool.


This Bentley Mulsanne Turbo has only covered an incredible 3,190 miles from new. It was purchased from Jack Barclay Limited in Berkley Square on 25th May, 1983 by Mr. Archibald D. Kelly, of Kilmacolm, who worked in shipbuilding; indeed, he owned shipyards in both Glasgow and Belfast.  He purchased two Rolls-Royce cars and another Bentley at the same time and all four cars were pampered and kept in his heated garage with parquet flooring.  At the time of purchase, he had the private registration number ADK 1 assigned to this Mulsanne. In 2002, Mr. Kelly sold the Bentley to his friend Mr. D. Blair, a local coal merchant, at which time the Bentley had an odometer reading of just 2,188 miles equating to a mere 115.2 miles per annum in the 19 years of Mr. Kelly's ownership. The Bentley has been garaged all of its life and only been driven to the MoT testing garage over the last few years. Whilst in Mr. Blair's ownership, he added just 349 miles in eleven years which equates to a mere 31.2 miles per annum. The previous owner bought the car in 2013 with 2,537 miles on the odometer and since then has only increased the mileage by a further 630 miles. Finished in Cotswold beige with cream leather interior, this Turbo has had a recent minor service and is supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in April 2018, a complete tool kit and handbook pack.
