The Bentley Turbo R is one of the most significant performance saloons produced by Bentley during its history. Not only was the car incredibly luxurious but it was also very powerful, producing 384bhp from its turbocharged 6.75 litre V8. This rare short wheelbase example of the 1996 Model year specification was initially retained by Rolls Royce as a company car and has been resprayed and is finished in Diamond Blue Silver "Lechler Special Mix" livery and strikingly furnished with wild berry leather upholstery with a full sheepskin over-rug set as well as having its original toolkit, triangle and jack in fitted compartments in the boot. The car sits on original factory specified 17" Continental "R" wheels. This low mileage 1995 example is in excellent condition and runs and drives very well and as it should. Overall, the bodywork and leather and wood interior presents very well bar a slight mismatch of paint on the wings and some small rust spots. The current owner purchased the car from a Bonhams Auction in 2009 from a past chairman of the Rolls Royce Enthusiasts Club, and has stored the car in a dry garage since taking ownership. The car has been kept running and used sparingly once or twice a week. The vendor had been advised by a previous owner that the car had belonged to the Chairman of Rolls-Royce when Bentley and Rolls-Royce were under the same ownership. The car comes with its original service book (plus full history) and is fully stamped with receipts. The car has recently been fully serviced with a new MOT expiring February 2022.
