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 example is presented in Cobalt Blue with magnolia leather interior, which some say is the best combination for these majestic luxury cars. This particular car is to Mulliner specification including mesh grilles (a very expensive factory option when new) wheels, steering wheel and side vents. The present owner purchased it in 2010 and has used it regularly since, having invested a significant sum in maintenance. There is a considerable amount of history with the car and is a fine example which still has so much presence on the road today as it did when first manufactured. Please note that the private number plate currently with the car is being retained by the present owner and not being sold with the car.
