Vehicle Description

Presenting a very rare RHD Bentley Mulsanne S in classic Georgian Silver hand-painted fine lines in St James Red to its waistrails. The interior is finished in very unique and special factory order, Harris Opera blue velvet with coordinating blue leather to the dash, console, arm rests, rear parcel shelf, head-liner and cantrails. A very rarely seen and delightful combination. Perhaps not to everyone's taste but we consider it beautiful. Not only because it is so rare, but with the benefit that it is considerably more comfortable than leather. And, the car so much quieter given the considerably greater acoustic benefits of cloth versus leather. The car was special order of Sir Paul Girolami of Glaxo Pharmaceuticals. As part of Sir Girolami's order, the car was to be "badge delete" which specifically referred to the NON-fitment of the BENTLEY badges on front wings (fenders) and boot (trunk) MULSANNE S badge. The cars was also to be fitted with special video equipment but that was eventually cancelled. In more recent times a multi-CD player has been fitted but an original factory Alpine unit is available should you be a purist and wish to replace it. Rarity aside, the condition of this Mulsanne is outstanding. This is a true 10 out of 10 car that is of top driver quality and standard. It has some 66,000 miles and yet the car simply looks like it has done 20,000. All original paint and finishes. The interior smells like a brand new Bentley, there is no wear on the seats and the wood is pretty much perfect. This is highly optioned example which has been meticulously maintained by its 3 previous Bentley enthusiast owners. The car's second owner was well known and highly respected Rolls-Royce and Bentley expert; Mr John Shostrom from Hong Kong, to where the car was originally delivered. (Mr Shostrom is an industry recognised aficionado regularly contributing his knowledge and experience to the restoration industry of the marque). After Mr Shostrom's stewardship, the car was sold and exported to Canada where she covered few miles by its new collector/owner. Park-Ward acquired the car earlier this year and brought all her services up to date. Being a Mulsanne S it has the 4 large round headlamps from the Turbo R and the full length centre console also from its big brother. She sports her own alloy wheels with a brand new set of whitewalls recently fitted by us. The body and paint is in excellent original condition with minimal imperfections. The car still "dressed" in its original single stage paint is a fantastic testament to its coddled ownership and originality. It is high in lustre, completely consistent and just beautiful. A set of factory Bentley mudflaps are fitted. The interior walnut wood is in perfect condition and is also the factory original Rolls-Royce/Bentley factory finish. The rich depth of the burl walnut contrasts very handsomely with the sumptuous Harris Opera blue velvet upholstery. The velvet in itself, is in excellent condition without wear, marks or blemishes and presents like that in a motor car only a few years old. The seats are very soft and super comfortable as you would imagine. Simply stunning and beautiful - in need of nothing. Truly exquisite. The dash "top-roll", rear parcel shelf and console are flawless. The leather headliner (also a special order) is simply "like new" and the carpets still "wool-ball" like new ones. The extra gooseneck reading lights in the rear quarters were also a special factory order (they are NOT aftermarket add-ons). Being a "home" spec car, it does not have the unattractive auto-seat belts or unattractive steering wheel airbag normally seen in 1991 cars destined for North America. Having spent almost all its life indoors and in the last 15 years, in climate controlled museum storage at all times, the car is very clean and dry. Mechanically the car has been well maintained. The condition and presentation under the hood is excellent testimony t
