General Overview:

Bentley Motors was founded in 1919 by W.O. Bentley with the aim of producing cars that merged power and performance with unrivaled craftsmanship. Bentley quickly established a formidable reputation through its success in motor racing, most notably winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans multiple times in the 1920s. Named after the famous Mulsanne Corner of Le Mans, this car symbolizes both a nod to Bentley’s historic racing triumphs and its commitment to leading-edge luxury. In 2010, Bentley launched the Mulsanne as its flagship model, replacing the Arnage and marking a return to its 1930’s 8-litre roots with a bespoke, distinctly Bentley luxury sedan.

This Mulsanne is equipped with a 6.75-liter V8, a nod to Bentley’s historical engine configurations, but re-engineered to offer enhanced performance and efficiency. With 505 horsepower and a capable 752 pound-feet of torque mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission; the Mulsanne ensures a smooth yet commanding drive that belies the vehicle’s 7,050 pound curb weight. The Bentley Mulsanne's production was a testament to bespoke craftsmanship, involving around 298 dedicated artisans who hand-built each vehicle. During the 10 year production run just 7,300 Mulsannes were expertly crafted for elite clientele, each one combining modern luxury with timeless craftsmanship.

History of This Car:

This beautifully appointed Bentley Mulsanne gracefully exited the production line in Crewe, England in July 2011. It was initially delivered to Bentley of Denver, Highlands Ranch, Colorado. It was then purchased and transported to North Miami, Florida, where it resided until 2013, accumulating a mere 1,074 miles. In August 2013, the current and consigning owner, a California resident, purchased the car and has lovingly maintained it for the past 11 years. Under current and prior ownership, this Mulsanne has been driven sparingly, averaging just over 1,800 miles per year, enjoying consistent and prudent annual service provided by Bentley of Walnut Creek and Bentley of Los Gatos. Having spent over 90% of its life in California, comprehensive service records and a current Carfax report confirm consecutively accumulated miles recorded to the currently indicated 22,068 miles.

General Condition:

This Bentley Mulsanne is beautifully finished in Onyx metallic paint, accented with hand painted Autumn pinstriping. Minor evidence of road use exists with some slight pitting present in the chrome grille. Upon metering with a digital paint meter, the car achieves single digit numbers which are consistent with factory paint on every panel. The headlights, tail lights, and all glass appears to be original and in immaculate condition. This Mulsanne features chrome plated and Bentley stamped exhaust tips, which also appear to be original and in great condition. Some very light scratching is present on the chrome trim behind the passenger side door handle. No major paint blemishes are present, and the body is straight with proportionately aligned panels. There are no major chips or notable blemishes present on the front windshield. We have worked to repair minor curb rash to the factory 21 inch alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero 265/40ZR21. All tires show 2018 date codes.

Inside the Mulsanne the stunning Autumn leather remains in excellent condition, with no visible wear on the leather seating surfaces. Each interior feature has been meticulously maintained, from the aluminum air vents and precise stitching to the lush carpets, elegant Anthracite seat piping, and exquisite Sappeli Pommele wood trim. Light scratches are evident on the "Mulsanne" stamped door thresholds at the front driver and passenger sides. ​​Further enhancing its lavish appointments, the interior includes electric sun shades throughout the rear passenger area, 10.4-inch wooden tables for rear seating, and a state-of-the-art Naim sound system. The original 6 CD changer is housed in the glove compartment, alongside the original media control remote provided for the convenience of backseat passengers. While there is no evidence of smoking in the car, it is equipped with the smoking package, complete with original ashtrays and 12v cigarette lighters. For ultimate riding comfort, the Mulsanne is equipped with Bentley’s Continuous Damping Control (CDC) suspension system and a disappearing infotainment center. The power-adjustable seats, front and rear, are all operational, with reclining rear seats managed via controls housed in the rear armrest. Passengers can enjoy the luxury of viewing themselves in two large backseat mirrors, and the interior lighting remains brilliant, enhancing the overall ambiance. Every aspect of this interior is elegantly configured and has been properly serviced. The trunk also retains pristine care and finish and includes the original spare tire and all factory tools.

Lifting the hood reveals the meticulously handcrafted twin-turbo V8 engine (No. 301184), which stands out with the same level of cleanliness and attention to detail afforded throughout the entire car. This engine has been diligently maintained through annual servicing; a fact underscored by the low mileage. All original engine trim and informational stickers are perfectly preserved. It is important to note that the hood struts are fatigued and will likely need to be replaced. The vehicle's underside matches the rest of the car in terms of cleanliness, contributing to an overall impeccably maintained appearance. The suspension components, bushings, and undercarriage tray are all in excellent condition, showing no signs of structural compromise or damage to the chassis or suspension mounting points.

Driving the Mulsanne is an extraordinary experience. Its exceptional suspension and sound deadening insulation create a serene haven, shielding the driver from external noise and disturbances. The remarkably smooth V8 engine delivers impressive torque, ensuring seamless and effortless acceleration, making the Mulsanne the perfect choice for both daily commutes and long-distance travel. Offering unmatched comfort and luxury, with the proud heritage of the Bentley brand, this Mulsanne is ready for the next owner to experience miles of enjoyment in a timeless chariot of rarity and distinction.
