The Bentley Mulsanne is named after the Mulsanne straight of the
Le Mans racing circuit, Bentley cars having won six victories at
the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the past. Bentley has brought back the
Mulsanne nameplate that was last used in 1992; this model replaces
the hugely successful Arnage and was unveiled at the 2009 Pebble
Beach Concours d'Elegance in August 2009. In keeping with the
Arnage, the Mulsanne retains the 6750cc, V8 power unit, the engine
is lighter and features cylinder de-activation and variable cam
phasing to improve fuel efficiency. It is the first flagship car to
be independently designed by Bentley Motors in nearly 80 years; the
last being W.O. Bentley's 8 litre model in 1930. 

Originally registered on 31st December 2015, this
Bentley is still in the 'as new' condition having covered only 115
miles. Finished in Sunset with linen interior and dark fireglow
carpets, it is fitted with the following optional extras; bottle
cooler with champagne flutes, GPS tracking system and entertainment
system including TV screens to the rear headrests with the overall
cost of this outstanding example at over £300,000. The driving
experience of such a luxury car is like no other, the sumptuous
interior is supremely comfortable and, with a top speed of 190mph,
(where permitted) and a 0-62mph time of 4.9 seconds, for such a
large car the performance is outstanding. Supplied originally by
Jack Barclay in London, this Mulsanne Speed is supplied with a V5C
registration document and the original handbooks.

Interested parties should note this is a VAT qualifying
car and this will be charged at 20% upon the final hammer price,
however overseas buyers may be able to reclaim any duties
