A new Bentley Turbo R model was introduced in 1995. Changes
included Zytek fuel injection and appearance modifications. In 1996
production of the short wheelbase Turbo R ended. leaving only the
model hitherto sold as the Turbo RL - now known simply as the Turbo
R. For 1997. the Turbo R was replaced by the sportier yet Turbo RT.
The Bentley Turbo RT was the last. rarest. most powerful and most
expensive of the Turbo R line. The Bentley RT came with the 400bhp
twin-turbo. 6. 75 litre. V8 engine of the Bentley two-door
Continental T installed. It is visually differentiated from other
Bentley Turbo R models by its sport wheels. colour-coded grille
slats and colour-coded bumpers. Performance was 'sufficient' with a
top speed limited to 150mph; the ultra-luxurious Turbo RT was
nearly as fast as the sporting German luxury saloons of the time.
The car's base price was £132. 00. or roughly £40. 00 more than the
Turbo R and was produced during 1997 and 1998 only with just 252
units produced.

This last of the line British Bentley with 400bhp on tap is
currently kept by its fifth owner; prior to him. for three years. br/>Joseph Morris held the controls and before him. Mr. Barry Smith.
From 0 to 60. 00 miles. it benefits from a Bentley service history
followed by Royce Engineering up until it was acquired by the
vendor in August 2013. It is described by the vendor as being in
generally good condition with an excellent interior. Supplied with
original Alpine head unit and cd changer. it should be noted that
there is an intermittent fault with the temperature gauge and the
keyless remote does not always work first time. Priced accordingly. br/>supplied with a full 12 month MoT test certificate and offering
enormous value for money. these late special-edition Bentleys are
becoming sought after
