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”. There were 5196 SWB and 2034 LWB models built.
This immaculate and low mileage left hand drive Bentley Turbo R is elegantly finished in ebony black with slate leather interior and red carpeting. Apart from the usual extras, a list of which can be viewed in the car’s file, there are further luxury additions to this prestigious motorcar. Fitted with the automatic gearbox, heated seating and burr walnut dashboard; the cars last service was done at 57,400kms, which the cars odometer is just reading now.
