*On Bentley's stand at the Paris Motor Show
*More than £26,000 spent in last three years
*Three owners from new


Combining almost supercar performance with room for four (and their luggage) was a task Bentley engineers tackled well with the Continental R. Highly praised when new, today they still offer true continent-cruising capabilities but at a fraction of the cost they were when new. This 1999 example, in the classic green over oatmeal pairing, has had three owners from new, and was shown on Bentley's stand at the Paris Motor Show. Our vendor reports the bodywork, paint, glass and trim to very good, as are the wheels/tyres. The seats, headlining and trim are very good and the carpets and door cards are good, they say. The engine is rated as excellent for starting and running and very good for presentation and the running gear is very good. A history file – said to be very good – comes with this car.
