Stunning Bentley Turbo R RED Label
We've just taken delivery of this car and it's one of the best used Bentleys we've had in. the car drove faultlessly the 200 miles yesterday to be collected and the engine is one of the smoothest I've experienced. We have been very tempted to keep this one as a daily driver and if the car doesn't reach the asking price I shall probably do just that.
The colour scheme and whole feel of the car makes it one you could very happily live with every day with the tight and solid steering you only get from a well looked after Turbo R.
To find a 22 year old car that's done just 80. 00 warranted miles is unheard of. it means the car has covered on average a touch over 3. 00 miles a year.
The car has very clearly been cherished and cared for so hopefully the next owner will do the same.
The engine is incredibly so smooth with masses of power with one of the best accelerations I've experienced from a Turbo R. interior condition is superb with unmarked woodwork that compliments the car beautifully. The cream leather has recently been treated and looks extremely good.
Everything seems to work as it should and I am confident the car will sell very quickly.
The car boasts privacy glass. upgraded Remote Control Alpine Stereo and Remote Central Locking along with the usual refinements including both memory and electrically heated seats. leather parcel shelf. colour coded bodywork and that bullet proof Turbo R charged engine.
The car is currently having a new mot so all the work required will be done and you know you're getting a great car!The very best thing about the car is it has a full service history with mostly main dealers- I have a printout confirming Jack Barclay serviced the car 11 times between 1993 and 2002 taking the mileage up to 51. 00. There are then receipts covering the last 30. 00 miles. I have all the previous mot's so the crazy low mileage is warranted.
The Bentley Turbo R was a high-performance model produced by Bentley Motors Limited. The "R" stood for "roadholding". to set it apart from its predecessor. It initially inherited the turbocharged engine from the Mulsanne Turbo and also sported a retuned suspension and wider tires on alloy wheels. a first for a Bentley. From the 1987 model year (20. 00 series chassis numbers). however. the Turbo R's V8 engine was retuned with fuel injection for added torque. Motor Trend called the Turbo R "the first Bentley in decades deserving of the famous name" in their review of the car on its introduction to the United States in 1989.
The suspension changes. though seemingly subtle. transformed the soft and less than well-controlled ride of the Mulsanne Turbo into that of a real performer. Development on improving handling had already begun when Mike Dunn was appointed engineering director in Crewe in February 1983. but instead of the proposed 10% increase in roll stiffness. he demanded 50%. This goal was met by upping the anti-roll bar rates by 100% in front and 60% in the rear. and by increasing the damping. APanhard rod to anchor the rear suspension was also introduced. reducing side-to-side movement in corners. Spring rates remained the same as on the Mulsanne.
Although official figures were never provided by Rolls-Royce. Motor Trend estimated power output at 221 kW (300 PS; 296 hp) with 660 N·m (486. 8 lb·ft) of torque. Priced at US$195. 00 in the US market. the Turbo R slotted above the Bentley Mulsanne S and Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit.
The Turbo R was sold alongside the Mulsanne Turbo for a brief moment. but the Mulsanne was taken out of production in 1985. In October 1986. for the 1987 model year. the Turbo R received anti-lock brakes and new Bosch MK-Motronic fuel injection to replace the Solex carburetors. Other modifications carried out at the same time included new. slimmer sports seats and a higher rear axle ratio. In mid-1988 (MY 1989) changes to the appearance were made. introducing twin round headlamps and a bigger front spoiler.
There are a few rust bubbles around the bottom of the rear arch but not enough to worry about right now as it's something easily sorted and not noticeable enough to worry about. The car is obviously almost 25 years old so a little common sense is required but an overall brilliant car.
We can help with delivery if costs are covered. No dreamers ;)
