Bentley Mulsanne S
(1987 - 1992)

Bentley Mulsanne S, 1988, KCX24701
Bentley Mulsanne S, 1988, KCX24701. When the cars of the model year 1989 were launched (during the third quarter of 1988) the Bentley Mulsanne S was announced as the Bentley mainstream model.

The company's traditional policy on appropriateness of change was reflected in developing the Bentley Mulsanne by phasing in major technological advances into the Bentley Mulsanne S. Firmer suspension enhanced the Bentley Mulsanne S's roadholding and interior features from the Bentley Turbo R were incorporated. Light alloy wheels were used for the first time on basis model in the Bentley range. The 1989 model year (being introduced in September 1988) saw the broad one-piece headlamps having been substituted by twin headlamps.
