THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Bentley unveiled the Continental R Mulliner at the 1999 Geneva Salon. With 420hp and a freight train like 650 foot-pounds of torque which was available from 2,200 rpm, the new super coupe was the most performance oriented Bentley to date. The 0-60 mph time dropped to just 5.6 seconds, while top speed went up to 167mph. Improved suspension, quicker steering, switchable traction control and massive 18" diameter wheels helped keep the luxury rocket under control. Only 131 Bentley Continental R Mulliners were made between 1999 and 2003. Without question one of the finest Bentleys ever made, the Continental R is also historically significant as one of the last hand-built Bentleys produced before the company's acquisition by Volkswagen.

All of the 131 Bentley Continental R Mulliner "Wide-Body" cars built are special in their own right, but this particular example stands above the rest. This car was specially built as the Frankfurt Motor Show Car. As a result of its intended purpose to get people excited about the new model, the car has a tremendous list of bespoke features throughout. Copies of the original order forms document each individual nuance that makes this build so unique. After being displayed in Frankfurt, the car was then air shipped to Los Angeles where it would make its Stateside unveiling at Pebble Beach. After wowing crowds in both Europe and the U.S., the R was sent to Vancouver for the Canadian release. After the press event in Canada, the R would return to the U.S. with Manhattan, New York as its final destination under Bentleys care. The cars famous world tour is documented in the impressive history file.

In the hands of its private owners, it has been wonderfully preserved and diligently maintained. Under its current stewardship, the rare coupe has been part of a wonderful collection and has been maintained with an open checkbook. All of the common issues that are known to effect the model have been addressed and remedied by marque specialists, with invoices documenting the care. With this Continental R Mulliner Wide-Body's incredible provenance, outstanding cosmetic and mechanical condition, and impressive history file, it becomes clear why this is a must have for any serious collector.
