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”.
This lovely Turbo R fires up and hums away just as it should. Inside there is little sign of wear and the cabin exudes all the sense of luxury and exuberance that you would expect from this fantastic model.
