The Bentley Eight

If the British are the masters of understatement, how does one improve on a Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit? For a few, Bentley was the answer. Ever since the folks at Crewe bought the Bentley brand, most of their cars have been alternatives to the Rolls-Royce. With a subtler grille, the Bentley was for the gentleman or lady who eschewed the flash of its parent. While the Bentley Mulsanne debuted in 1980, the Eight debuted in 1984 as a decontented version of the Mulsanne. Standard equipment included cloth upholstery and steel wheels but, by 1987, fuel injection, anti-lock brakes, leather upholstery, and power memory seats were included. Through 1992, 1,736 Bentley Eights were built until it was replaced by the Bentley Brooklands.

The Motorcar Offered

With its choice Brewster Green paint and handcrafted tan leather interior, this 1987 Bentley Eight is a handsome example of the understated elegance that drew people to the Bentley brand while giving the best that Rolls-Royce had to offer. Best of all, Bentley owners treated their vehicles with the same care as Rolls-Royce owners, meaning this Eight has received the care you'd expect for a prestigious automobile.
