Footnotes

  • Introduced at Geneva in 1985, the Turbo R continued the modern 'Blower Bentley' theme but with the added refinement of suspension better suited to the car's increased performance. Outwardly the R differed from the preceding Mulsanne Turbo by virtue of its cast-alloy wheels shod with low-profile Pirelli tyres, while inside the cabin there was a revised fascia with rev-counter included among the comprehensive instrumentation. In a break with factory tradition, power figures were made public, revealing that the 6.75-litre V8 engine produced a 320bhp and a staggering 475lb/ft of torque. Few cars were - or are - better suited to fast long-distance touring.

    This example has the Bosch fuel injection system introduced for the 1987 model year and is finished in Royal Blue with Parchment hide interior. The car has covered circa 88,000 miles, only 5,000-or-so in the last three years, and is described as in generally very good condition - smooth, comfortable and driving well. Serviced and MoT'd in January 2013, it comes with service history from H R Owen, Douglas Daniels and Ghost Motors to circa 70,000 miles, together with 15 MoT certificates supporting the recorded mileage. Carrying the cherished registration 'D5 RRM', the car is offered with handbooks, tool kit, current road fund licence, MoT to January 2014 and Swansea V5 document.
