Has a winged B badge on the boot lid, before that it was a rectangular one similar to the badge Rolls-Royces had. What year was this change?

Also noticed a little badge behind the rear door. This may not be a Mulsanne, the bloke above me probably just said that because it's like a default name for this shape of Bentley.

dsl wrote Winged boot badge from Jan 89 when twin headlights introduced. Range at that point was Eight, Mulsanne, Turbo R.


And we can't really tell which here. Grille sort of looks chrome in the third thumbnail so maybe either a Mulsanne S (which replaced the original Mulsanne model by this point) or an Eight. Or just list as 1989 Bentley?

Yes Mulsanne S replaced ordinary Mulsanne Oct 87 (I missed that line of info in Glass's entry); S is listed as having first version of Turbo R bodywork from the start, so if ordinary body this is Eight, if pimped Mulsanne S or if further pimped the Jan 89 onwards Turbo R with sill extensions, front dam, and standard alloys. Winged boot badge excludes the earlier Turbo R. I'll leave you to peer into the gloom and decode this one ...

I think the Turbo R was still the most produced model. 'Ordinary body' was originally Mulsanne in 1980, Eight was brought out as a few years later as an entry-level model, then Turbo R replaced the Mulsanne Turbo.

It seems long wheelbase, were the Eight or Mulsanne S available as this?

@G-MANN: the rear door seems to long to be Standard Wheelbase. Anyway, Eight and S were also available in LWB.

LWB Mulsanne from June 81 - no other mention in Glass's so unclear if it continued into S. No mention of Eight LWB, but there was the Brooklands LWB from Sept 92, long before ordinary Brooklands which emerged Feb 97.
