Dévoilée en 1985, la Turbo R reprenait le thème de la « blower Bentley » moderne qui avait débuté trois ans plus tôt avec la Mulsanne Turbo, mais avec le raffinement supplémentaire d'une suspension mieux adaptée à ses performances supérieures. Extérieurement, la R se distinguait par ses roues en alliage chaussées de pneus Pirelli taille basse, tandis qu'à l'intérieur on trouvait un tableau de bord modifié avec un compte-tours de série dans la très complète instrumentation. Rompant avec la tradition, la puissance était rendue publique, révélant que le moteur développait une puissance maximale de 320 ch et un couple de 658 Nm. Peu de voitures sont plus appropriées pour les trajets longue distance.

Cette Turbo R a été livrée neuve chez Achilli Motors SpA de Milan, en Italie, en mars 1990. Vers 1992, la Bentley fut exportée au Japon puis revint au Royaume-Uni en 2007. Elle a été révisée par Peter Jarvis à 67 000 km (décembre 2007) puis à nouveau à 70 000 km (juin 2015). Bentley Edimbourg a révisé la voiture en juin 2016 (à 70 801 km), date depuis laquelle elle n'a parcouru que 4 000 km. Cette Bentley de collection moderne est vendue avec son carnet d'entretien, son manuel du propriétaire, diverses factures pour pièces, ses papiers d'immatriculation UK V5C et des certificats du MoT périmés.

1990 Bentley Turbo R Sports Saloon
Chassis no. SCBZR03A9LCX32912

•Delivered new to Milan, Italy
•UK registered since 2007
•Regularly serviced
•Circa 75,000 kilometres from new

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 tradition, power figures were made public, revealing that the engine produced a maximum of 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 delivered new to Achilli Motors SPA in Milan, Italy in March 1990. Circa 1992, the Bentley was exported to Japan, returning to the UK in 2007. It was serviced on arrival by Peter Jarvis at 67,000 kilometres (December 2007) and again at 70,000 kilometres (June 2015). Bentley Edinburgh serviced the car in June 2016 (at 70,801 kilometres) since when it has only been driven some 4,000 kilometres. This collectible modern Bentley is offered with its service booklet, owner's handbook, sundry invoices for parts, UK V5C registration documents, and some expired MoT certificates.
