Bentley Turbo R. Balmoral Green with twin red painted fine lines. Parchment Leather with Spruce top roll. Long term ownership with the previous owner since January 2001. 2 keys & remote fobs. 2 Stamped service books with 16 RR & Bentley and 5 Hanwells (21 Total) Services to 91551 miles in 2000. Then light use but still with servicing and repairs with 9 Overton specialist invoices/service receipts to February 2015. Oil service and inspection carried out October 2015. Mot and A/C regas (134a) in August 2015. Notable invoices for suspension parts. ball joints. compliance bushes. radiator. electronic control module. window micro switches. front pads. 2 brake spheres + drive shaft gaiters 2013 + alarm/locking replaced & 2 seat control modules in 2015. Compete with all handbooks and manuals. Many old tax discs and all MOT certificates since 2000 showing regular but light use (approximately 22. 00 miles) in the last 15 years. Also paperwork relating to dry storage when not in use. Fitted with the correct Avon tyres on 15M model alloy wheels with winged B caps in excellent condition. Both brake system pressure lights go out quickly and stay out during driving. Very good bodily with no nasty or visibly repaired rot in rear wheel arches. screen surrounds. valances or headlamp areas. All 4 arches still show the factory black seam to the inner lips. There is one small (1 CM) touched in chip on the N/S/F wheel arch edge and a small (2 CM) reaction under the paint around the boot lock surround. Overall very presentable and much better than most with no hidden nasties or bodged repairs. Interior is nicely "aged" with all leather facings in good order (including the roof lining) and very presentable veneers free from the staining & bleaching so commonly found. The only deviations from build spec being the addition of a 1998 Panasonic radio/tape/6 disc CD changer (boot) and the modern alarm/locking system with a very discreet steering cowl mounted LED. Being a 20000 series car it is in Bentley Turbo R terms one of the least complicated/most reliable years with regard to the cost of the ongoing maintenance that these hand built cars need. The First model in the series to receive the trade mark twin round headlights. steel sill extensions & sporting front/rear lower valances. Bomb proof column shift 3 speed GM box. simple but effective (and repairable) Bosch electro/mechanical fuel injection. no catalytic converters. no active ride control dampers (complicated & Very expensive to fix) & free from the cosmetic/electrical "enhancements" of the later updated series. A Very realistic ownership proposition with a normal classic car maintenance budget. I have personally covered around 250 miles in the car without any issues presenting themselves. Any inspections welcomed.
