The Bentley Turbo R is a high-performance car which was produced from 1985 to 1999. The “R” stood for “Roadholding”, to set it apart from its predecessor. It initially inherited the turbocharged engine from the Mulsanne Turbo and also sported a re-tuned suspension and wider tyres on alloy wheels, a first for a Bentley. From the 1987 model year, the Turbo R’s V8 engine was upgraded with fuel injection for added torque. Motor Trend called the Turbo R, “the first Bentley in decades deserving of the famous name”.
Offered from the estate of a significant private collector of many cars, motorcycles and military vehicles, the wonderful Bentley Turbo R offered here is finished in Grey with interior hide in Parchment. Showing a mere 12,000 kilometres recorded, this is a timewarp example of the ultimate “gentleman’s express”.
