This is my beautiful BENTLEY TURBO R in what I would say is the best colour combination Balmoral Green with cream leather interior. The bodywork is in very nice condition. nbsp;polishes up well and I would say you would be hard pushed to find a finer example in such great order for its age and price. The 6. 75 litre V8 rubbles into life on the turn of the key. and is ready for the off when the self levelling and brake systems are all charged (this standard if the car has been standing for more than 4 hours). There's noting like it for shear presence. elegance and stature. If your buying this type of car not to be noticed you would be making a big mistake. you will be noticed. Its remarkable valued car for what was over £100. 00 when new and can be had for what it would cost you for a reasonable second hand family car.

The car comes with a full history. the previous owners did much research when he acquired it obtaining even Bentley's own print out of the service record to check the service stamps in the two service books.

I bought this car in October 2012 the intension was to realise a aspiration of mine to simply own one of these fine cars but also to consider doing a few weddings. proms etc. having adapted the garage to take this car's length. all was set until my wife decided she now wants to downsize our home with the children all but on their way in life. Our house is now on the market so the pressure is now really on to find a deserving home for this Bentley.  I have considered storing her in a local barn but £100 a month is a bit steep so I left with the last option to sell her to another deserving owner.

If I can't at least recover most of my investment 80% I probably retain her longer and bite the bullet and store the Bentley until the summer.

This might suit someone like me. who desires to own one of these fine cars. or someone who has some serious intentions to earn a living from Weddings and prom's.

The MOT is new. safety brake small adjustment and a bulb and it was clear.

If you planning to offer me a silly price of 6-7K then I suggest you can find many possible candidates out there for this price but they just won't be anything close to as good as this car.

You will note the car comes with the later alloy wheels. I personally think they look great but some purists might prefer originals. (see option to bid on car with standard wheels. the original alloys with tyres on. centre caps and keys that will come with the car.

The car can return surprising mpg. I done a few trips to the midlands returning 20-21 mpg on light throttle use and keeping her at 65 mph on the motorway. but the average is about 15-16 mpg. Push the right foot to the floor though she will surprise a few hot hatches with a 0-62 in about 6. 7 sec and onto a top speed of over 140 mph (not bad for a 2 ton car) mpg will drop to 12-13 mpg.  

So her you have it. my dream can be your dream. make it happen. I did and I never regret it. just sorry I can't continue the dream. but love someone now to carry it on.

Happy for you to come and see. test drives if you serious but subject to person review and adequate insurance.    

I had lots of watchers. some interest but no real bidders. I set the reserve at my 70% of my investment
