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”.
Previously this car was sold by Bentley as a used and approved Turbo R with 38,551 miles recorded. Still displaying a modest 52,000 miles, this car is offered with an extensive history file that includes numerous invoices, service book and its Bentley ‘Approved’ book-pack. Having covered so few miles, this very original Turbo R has lots of life left. Offered at no reserve to the highest bidder.
