When Bentley launched the Turbo ‘R’ model in 1985 the company refreshed its identity as a manufacturer of quality high performance sports cars. A powerhouse of an engine, displacing 6,750cc, propelled that model to a governed 135mph with blistering acceleration. Coupled with the Turbo ‘R’s prodigious performance was a level of comfort found in few other cars and Bentley tapped into a marketplace eager for new standards in luxury and performance. The 1997 Turbo ‘RT’ Mulliner justifiably claimed the heritage of its predecessor and the sporting ancestry from three-quarters of a century of Bentley production. Powered by the familiar 6750cc V8 engine, the RT was still more powerful than its contemporary Turbo ‘R’, developing 420bhp compared with 400bhp from the ‘R’ and giving still faster 0-60mph acceleration in just 5.8 seconds with a top speed of 150mph.

The bespoke Mulliner specification of this car includes Racing Green livery, Spruce leather upholstery with St James red piping, Conifer carpets with matching lambswool over-rugs, Light Burr Oak veneer dashboard and waistrails, shade band to windscreen and rear quarter companion mirror. The drilled pedals reflect the sporting pedigree and the engine turned aluminium door kick plates and centre console were a bespoke order. Distinctive features include the speedo and bezel to the rear of the central console together with the stylishly functional bonnet and scuttle air intakes.

In short, here is a limited edition car engineered and coachbuilt to the highest standards. Supplied new by Jack Barclay Ltd, this car has a full Rolls-Royce dealer service history being last serviced in March this year when the mileage was just 49,417 miles. The current odometer reading was 51,220 miles at the time of cataloguing. It is offered with valuable Bentley Assistance Service Warranty to 18th April 2004 and comes also with Tracker Vehicle Recovery System.

This outstanding car is now offered at a fraction of its original £200,000 or so list price and is currently licenced and MoT tested.
