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. Bentley's much-improved sports saloon was greeted with approval by Autocar magazine: 'There was a time, not so long ago, when Bentley played a faint second fiddle to Rolls-Royce. That is no longer the case. Rolls-Royce's management now recognises the value of the Bentley name and tradition and has developed the image, along with the sales, to take advantage. In a terribly upmarket way, Bentley is now the enthusiast, high performance partner, and never more so than in the turbo-charged Bentley R.' Outwardly the R differed from the preceding Mulsanne Turbo by virtue of its cast-alloy wheels shod with low-profile Pirelli tyres, while inside there was a revised fascia with rev-counter included amongst the comprehensive instrumentation. In a break with Rolls-Royce tradition, power figures were made public, revealing that the engine produced 320bhp and a staggering 475lb/ft of torque. Few cars were, or are, better suited to fast long-distance touring.

    One of only 930 LWB Turbo Rs built between 1984 and 1997, this example has covered a mere 33,750 miles from new and is presented in beautiful condition throughout. Finished in maroon with cream leather interior, this magnificent motor car comes with full service history (15 stamps), current MoT and a V5C registration document.
