The Bentley Turbo R was a high-performance model produced from
1985 to 1997 totalling 7. 30 units in the 12 year production
period. The 'R' stood for 'Road-holding' to set it apart from its
predecessor. the Mulsanne. courtesy of substantially stiffer
anti-roll bar settings. a Panhard rod system and increased damping.
Wider tyres on alloy wheels were also a first for a Bentley on the
Turbo R. The suspension changes transformed the soft ride of the
Mulsanne into that of a real performer with motoring press
proclaiming this model to be more faithful to Bentley's racing
pedigree. In 1995. a 'new' Turbo R was launched featuring. amongst
other things. fuel injection. This contributed towards a mighty
385bhp output.

This locally owned and privately entered Bentley Turbo R was
delivered by HR Owen. London on 10th April 1997. One of a total of
2. 34 long wheelbase models produced. this model was specified with
Cobalt blue coachwork complemented by Parchment hide with royal
blue piping and carpets of dark blue lamb's wool with parchment
binding. Maintained most recently by its ex-HR Owen engineer owner. br/>the car has enjoyed meticulous upkeep including recent work to
suspension and brakes as well as fresh engine. gearbox and brake
system fluids. The most recent MoT test certificate was issued in
May with no advisories and just 300 miles covered since. The car
performs with excellent poise and a velvet power delivery. Gear
changes are seamless and the car feels tight and highly capable.
The service book contains 13 entries. several of which are by
Weybridge Automobiles then a Bentley Dealership here at Brooklands.
The car was last serviced in December 2014 with less than 800 miles
covered since. A cherished example in excellent condition
throughout.
