Footnotes

  • Introduced in 1985, the Turbo R continued the modern 'Blower Bentley' theme that had commenced with the Mulsanne Turbo, but with the added refinement of suspension better suited to the car's increased performance. Outwardly the R differed by sporting cast-alloy wheels shod with low-profile Pirelli tyres, while inside there was a revised fascia with rev-counter included amongst the comprehensive instrumentation. Despite its not inconsiderable weight, the Turbo R would accelerate to 60mh in under seven seconds and 135mph would be showing on the clock before the limiter cut in. Few cars were, or are, better suited to fast, long-distance touring.

    This particular Turbo R was retailed via the SMAC Group PLC of Thorpe Bay, Essex and first registered as '11 GRA'. The Bentley comes with extensive service history (14 stamps in the book) and has covered only 66,920 miles from new. Carried out in March 2018 at 66,564 miles, the most recent service included replacing the water pump, engine drive belts, front brake discs/pads, rear hydraulic gas springs, and air conditioning compressor, and remedying various minor faults (full details available). A sporting yet comfortable long-distance cruiser, this mighty 'Blower Bentley' is offered with current MoT, a V5C document, and the aforementioned service history.
