Bentley Mulsanne Turbo
(1982 - 1985)

Bentley Mulsanne Turbo

Bentley Mulsanne Turbo, 1986, #SCBZS0T04GCH15620. Quite a number of Mulsanne Turbo owners were keen to update their cars by light alloy wheels once these were offered by the company.

A new level of achievement was represented by the Bentley Mulsanne Turbo's appearance at the Geneva Motor Show in March, 1982. Attention to performance engineering was documented by a 50 increase in power without increase in engine speed. The very solid 6.75 litre engine's basic design proved to stand the boost of a Garrett AirResearch turbocharger with no stress - the power plant had of course benefited from Rolls-Royce's legendary 'Attention to Detail'. The Bentley Mulsanne Turbo offered really crisp acceleration. Driver and passengers were coveted for in a unique environment dominated by a highly polished walnut veneered fascia, blemish-free leather and carpets and headlining of pure wool. A radiator shell painted in the car's colour, light alloy wheels and 'Turbo' labels attached to boot and front wing flanks distinguished the Bentley Mulsanne Turbo from the Bentley Mulsanne.
