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”.
The wonderful Bentley Turbo R offered here today is finished in Sherwood Green with Gold metallic fine lines complete with quarter badges. The interior hide is Parchment with Spruce piping on the seats and Spruce top roll, complimented by Conifer carpets and sheepskin over-rugs. This car also benefits from a full service history, complete tool kit, climate control, 6 disc CD changer, electric tilt steering wheel, factory alarm and electric windows. The car comes with a current MOT and UK V5C registration and has been fastidiously maintained, making it an excellent prospect for an everyday driver or future classic.
