Turbo R

1989





 

Most desirable combination of Black with honey tan interior






Here is a really stunning looking Bentley Turbo R finished in Masons black with biscuit/honey tan Connolly hides. The twin fine lines to the waist-rails are hand-painted in matching tan.

This Bentley is very well known to us having been fully maintained by us by an owner who would request everything and anything be done without sparing expense. Every service is completley up to date. The car has travelled only 56. 00 miles. We make no apology for this Turbo R being higher priced than many. nbsp;but we can assure you this will be amongst the finer example Turbo Rs you will find. She needs nothing.  The economy in price will be proven by low maintenance in ownership.

The Bentley Turbo R is powered by a 6. 75 litre Rolls-Royce designed V8 engine with the Bosch fuel injecton system and Garret Turbo-charger. Exuding in excess of 300 horsepower it pumped out over 500 foot pounds of torque. So she is quite spritely indeed and. quoting Modern Car's review upon its release; "such is the power of this 2. 5 ton behemoth. when you power down streets in Sussex. she blows leaves off trees in Kent!". It has the look and a true behemoth it is! With the black and completely colour-coded bumpers. this is indeed a handsome beast.

This Bentley is what is known as the "20. 00 series" car. which is a desirable model having had incorporated many engineering and design upgrades. Most notably. the introduction of Bosch electrics. eliminating the troublesome Lucas issues.

Having been meticulously maintained by Park-Ward. this Bentley Turbo needs absoltely nothing. Some $20. 00 was spent at its last major services to include mechnaical. electrical and some cosmetic items. Nothing was over-looked. ignored or deferred. A copy of the last services is available upon request.  I reiterate. mechanically and operationally. this car needs nothing - guaranteed. Under the bonnet. the presentation is amazing. It has not been precision detailed but simply kept clean and tidy throughout its life. The car sports factory specification original Turbo R alloy wheels.

The body of the car is straight and the paint deep in lustre and consistency. It does have a few minor little chips and marks here and there but these are few and only show if one looks hard. Otherwise it is very shiny without any fading. dents or dings. Rubbers. mouldings. badges and external fittings are all in excellent condition.

The interior of this car is stunning. The Connolly leather shows beautifully and is completely original. It has never been re-dyed or messed with and yet remains very soft and supple without any signs of typical wear. The wood throughout is excellent and can comfortably be described as near perfect showing almost no lacquer cracks. chips or marks. Carpets. seats. dash. front top-roll. rear parcel shelf. head-liner and fixtures are truly excellent and I best encourage you to look at all the photos to fully appreciate how nicely the interior presents. The boot space is very clean and equally nice. The car also had an up-market current technology Blaupunkt stereo CD system recently fitted by Park-Ward.

As part of Park-Ward's maintenance program. all electricals and features & functions have been inspected so everything is operating as it should; windows. seats. mirrors. A/C. heater. lights. wipers. etc. Right down to every light bulb in the dash. This is a true. "take the keys and drive" example with no additional budget needed to attend to any nuances or gremlins.

Being a well-maintained example. It is tight to drive. brakes strong and rides as a Bentley should. As an example of the meticulous attention to her maintenance. new tyres were recently fitted on rims that were sand-blasted and powder-coated to factory finish.


When describing a car for sale. one should be very careful to use terms like "perfect" and "flawless" because nothing but a brand new car can be described this way. That said. this Bentley is very close to. is of a very high standard and is an easy 10 out of 10 driver rating. She is 100% factory original in specification in every respect.


~~ This very masculine Bentley Turbo R is a stunning example which simply oozes road presence! Being a rare and unique example. it makes for a wonderful addition to any collection or provide that special "oomph" for your Friday night ride! ~~

International buyers always welcome!

A note from RRMOTORSINC:
“For those Rolls-Royce enthusiasts who have followed my auctions in the past I welcome you all. For those who are new to my adverts and/or the marque. please note that as a serious collector of some 30 years. all my cars are truly described examples. I have my own private Rolls-Royce workshop (not open to the public but dedicated to my own cars) with trained Rolls-Royce craftsmen who are proficient in all aspects. As a team. we are dedicated to the preservation of the marque and as such. any car that leaves the stable is completely inspected and work-shopped to ensure mechanical and operational items are maintained appropriately. We adopt a “keep it original” mentality with pride and confidence. offering after sales technical support and assistance well beyond the sale. Because most of my cars are offered for the pleasures of driving enjoyment it is not always possible or practical to seek perfection (in the true sense of the word) but we do always uphold excellence in whatever we do. Our cars are by no means cheap priced cars but we like to think they are amongst the best. To this end. I firmly believe in the famous adage; “Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten. ” We hope you do to. ”






**PLEASE read auction terms and conditions below BEFORE bidding. **

~~ Important note: the $2. 00 deposit is due within 24 hours. If not paid. or if no contact is received within that period. we reserve the right to offer the car to any other party. ~~



~~oo00oo~~



This Bentley is part of a private collection. Although licensed and bonded. I am not a main-stream retail car dealer or broker; I am a professional car collector of some 35 years with considerable experience and knowledge of Rolls-Royce and Bentley Motor Cars. I have a long standing reputation being associated with the marque which I take seriously. I take pride in my cars and have fun in collecting and restoring them. However. auctions are not a game so when you place a bid or offer. and you are the winning bidder. please understand you have entered a binding contract. You cannot bid and win the auction and expect not to meet the terms and conditions. Bidding and/or winning does not mean you are expecting me to “hold” the car until you have the opportunity to inspect it. Any inspection contemplated should be undertaken BEFORE you bid or make an offer and I openly welcome any potential buyer to come and personally inspect the car. Once you bid or make an offer. you are doing so to buy WITHOUT conditions. Your bid can not be subject to anything. A $2000. 00 deposit (non-refundable) is required within 24 hours of the close of the auction and payable by PayPal. The balance of funds are required within 7 days of the close of the auction and must be provided by cashier's check or bank wire. I cannot accept PayPal for the balance unless you are willing to meet the cost of transfer fees. Full payment must be made (and payments cleared) before the title and/or the vehicle is released. All payments are non-refundable. Payments as described above form an important part of this purchase contract and so. if all the funds are not received as outlined above. I reserve the right to terminate the transaction without notice. If there has been any deposit or other part payments received and I elect to terminate the contract. I reserve the right to keep any such deposits or payments and resell the vehicle to another bidder or interested party or re-list the vehicle at any time. To be clear. if you change your mind for ANY reason and do not complete the transaction in the time-frame required. you will forfeit your deposit. I am happy to assist with shipping arrangements on a national and worldwide basis but the winning bidder takes full responsibility for pickup and/or shipping and at his cost.

As a collector and experienced restorer of the marque. I make every effort to bring my cars to a high standard. By comparison. my cars are generally superior to others available but they are by no means perfect. You must expect some issues. Unless specifically stated. the car is not of show standard but of nice "driver" condition. Please understand. show cars of this model cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to achieve and sell for prices commensurate. so the sale price of this car reflects its relative condition. You are buying "condition" accordingly. Buyers should not expect to receive concours quality or "perfect" cars at these prices. Please also understand. the very nature of these classic Rolls-Royce & Bentleys is such that it is not always possible to attend to every item. or perhaps I may have inadvertently overlooked items. Further. and very importantly. these cars are classic cars also because they are old. So this means a +/-30 year old car is predominantly comprised of 30 year old parts. And old parts will fail. All buyers must understand and expect that things can or will wear out. break and/or stop functioning without notice. This is even more likely with hand-built English cars of early technology when compared to the typical American car of the same vintage. Please note. fitted radio/stereo systems are usually subject to upgrade by purchasers so I do not ensure operation of these. Similarly. cruise control systems fitted to these classics were of an inferior design and I do not check or warrant the operation of these. Suspension and brakes on these cars are complex. We thoroughly check them and replace things that are identified faulty. But please understand. by example; if we change a brake line because it appears aged or faulty. we do NOT at the same time replace all other hoses because they are of similar age. This is considered "preventative maintenance". We do not do this unless specifically requested and is not included in the purchase price. Feel free to ask for this additional service. Further. a feature or function that is working perfectly one moment. may decide to play-up the next. After all. it is some 50 years old. This is the nature of any classic car and especially a Rolls-Royce which was very "complicated" for its era. For this reason it is necessary for the following condition:


The vehicle is being sold "as-is/where-is" with no warranty expressed. written or implied. Any descriptions or representations are made with reasonable judgment and all efforts are made to ensure fair assessment and accuracy but they are for descriptive and identification purposes only and are not to be construed as a warranty of any type. The seller shall not be responsible for errors in description. authenticity. genuineness. or defects herein and makes no warranty in connection therewith. If any aspect of the description contradicts what can be seen in the photos. then the photos shall prevail as the reference point. No allowance or set aside will be made on account of any incorrectness. unforeseen imperfection. defect or damage. It is the responsibility of the buyer to have satisfied himself as to the condition and value and to bid based upon that judgment solely. The seller shall and will make every reasonable effort to disclose any known defects at the buyer's request prior to the close of the auction. Seller assumes no responsibility for any repairs regardless of any written or oral statements about the vehicle. Being a classic car in excess of 10 years of age. in most US states. the mileage may be recorded as “exempt”. In this regard the seller makes no warranties as to the accuracy of the mileage indicated or shown and accepts no responsibility for any discrepancy with independent reports such as Carfax. AutoCheck. etc. In this regard the seller makes no warranties as to the accuracy of the mileage indicated or shown. I can hold the vehicle up to 30 days while you arrange shipping but you must immediately insure it. I will not bear any responsibility for any additional costs including storage. transportation. or repair after the close of the auction. Whereas I am happy to store the car in excess of 30 days from auction end. a cost of $35 per day shall apply beyond 30 days of auction end. Also. you must remember that this is a classic +/-30 year old vehicle. and while it is up to you. I do not recommend that you just “hop in and drive it across the country” until you have familiarised yourself with the car. At least. I have never done that. I have always professionally transported the cars in enclosed carriers from where I bought them to my home.

PLEASE; IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ABIDE BY THESE TERMS. CONTACT ME BEFORE YOU CONTEMPLATE DOING SO AS. RESPECTFULLY. THERE CAN BE NO EXCEPTIONS.

I am sorry if these terms seem harsh but there seem to be some very unrealistic buyers out there - fortunately. only few of these people exist but those that do can make life difficult. so it appears EVERYTHING needs to spelled out. Very simply put. this is an old car being offered for sale. It is not new and is subject to the perils of age. Further. Rolls-Royces are not without nuances. idiosyncrasies and they are renown for a host of design issues which can make them not inexpensive to maintain. This is well documented in many circles. You need to be a special and considerate type of purchaser to own a Rolls-Royce. Their down-side is part of the fun in owning them! As the old saying goes; "we love to hate them and hate to love them!" So. please respect the terms and conditions when you bid.

VALUES: Rolls-Royce values vary wildly. entirely dependent on their condition. There are. of course. other aspects that add or subtract from their values – Long Wheel Base versus regular. the year which dictated certain technical changes. etc. The colour alone. for example can make a big difference. So for the benefit of new-comers to the marque please see the approximate guide to values based on a particular model below. Please remember. these are “plus-or-minus” figures:


Year:                     1987-1990
Make:                    Bentley

Model:                   Turbo R 


Show car:             $40. 00+

Exceptional:        $30-35. 00

Excellent:             $25-30. 00

Good:                    $18-25. 00

Average:               $12-18. 00

Fair:                      $6-12. 00

Basket case:         < $6. 00

 


Hopefully this will provide a reference point for the Rolls-Royce being featured in this listing as it compares to the range of different condition examples.  Please note. a very poor condition example that is tired and not maintained can easily demand some $30. 00 in restoration to make it a "nice" example but remember. it will be no longer original. So don't be fooled by "cheap buys". For any specific questions about this unique example of a Rolls-Royce. please do not hesitate to contact me.


According to the London based investment research firm; Historic Automobile Group International. classic cars have appreciated on average. 13% per year since 1980. whilst overall stock values averaged an 11% gain over the same period.
