1989 Bentley 6.8 litre Turbo
Reg. no. NIL 4228
Chassis no. Unknown
Engine no. Unknown
The Bentley Turbo R was introduced in 1985, replacing the Mulsanne. The \"R\" stood for \"roadholding\", to set it apart from its predecessor, in which the sporting attributes a Bentley should have had occasionally been found to be absent. It initially inherited the turbocharged engine from the Mulsanne Turbo, but boasted re-tuned suspension and wider tyres on alloy wheels, a first for a Bentley. From the 1987 model year, the Turbo R\'s V8 engine was improved with fuel injection for added torque. \"The first Bentley in decades deserving of the famous name\" was the opinion of American publication Motor Trend when the model was launched in the US in 1989 – many Bentley enthusiasts agreed, the Turbo R offering superb performance and surprising roadholding for a car of its size and massive weight, while also maintaining the standard of luxury that Bentley was known for.
This 1989 Turbo R is in very good condition, and the history file contains bills for mechanical work in 2017 and bodywork over the last decade. It is offered with a V5c and an MOT until July of this year.
