Footnotes

  • Introduced in 1985, the Turbo R continued the modern 'Blower Bentley' theme that had commenced three years previously with the Mulsanne Turbo, but with the added refinement of suspension better suited to the car's increased performance. Outwardly the R differed by virtue of its cast-alloy wheels shod with low-profile Pirelli tyres, while inside there was a revised fascia with tachometer included amongst the comprehensive instrumentation. In a break with Rolls-Royce tradition, power figures were made public, revealing that the engine produced a 320bhp and a staggering 475lb/ft of torque. Few cars were - or are - better suited to fast long-distance touring.

    This particular Turbo R was supplied by P&A Wood on 1st August 1993. Finished in Balmoral Green, the car was registered 'L685 LOO' and first owned by Wardle Storeys Ltd of Manningtree, Essex. The late owner purchased the Bentley in July 1996 and registered it with his cherished number 'TED 1', since removed. P&A Wood serviced the vehicle from 1993 to July 2010 at 82,000 miles, the current odometer reading being circa 83,500 miles. MoT'd to July 2014 and currently taxed, the car is offered with all old tax discs from 1994-2011, Swansea V5C document and owner's wallet containing handbooks, service booklet, etc.
