Bentley’s 1980s resurgence had hitherto relied exclusively on models whose basic architecture was shared with other Rolls-Royce products; but on display at Geneva in 1985 was Project 90, a mocked-up coupé intended to gauge public response to the idea of a high-performance car unique to Bentley. When the real thing – the Bentley Continental R – was unveiled six years later, the waiting crowd burst into spontaneous applause. Styled with the assistance of consultants International Automotive Design, the Continental R benefited from computer-aided design and wind tunnel testing in the creation of its sleekly streamlined shape.
Finished in special order ivory with a black leather interior, this wonderful low mileage example was delivered new to Holland, highly specified with the Continental T standard of trim. Over the years the Bentley has covered a very low mileage, with only c. 30,000 kilometres recorded from new, supported by a full book pack with the relevant documents. Your chance to own the fastest, most luxurious and most powerful Bentley of its day, and one of the nicest on offer anywhere.
