Description

Backgrounds of this model
– The Bentley Continental R is the first 2-door Bentley saloon (coupé) after the production of the Bentley Corniche 2-door saloon was terminated at the end of model year 1980. Up to and including 1986 the factory did sell a 2-door saloon model: the Rolls-Royce Camargue. But the one-off Bentley Camargue from 1985 may not be considered as the predecessor of the Bentley Continental R. After the Camargue the factory didn’t sell any Fixed Head Coupé at all so far.
– The model doesn’t succeed another model but is a model that was introduced besides existing models.

This particular, left-hand drive, German-supplied (Auto König), Continental ‘R’ was first registered on 14th December 1994 and is finished in the delectable colour combination of Peacock Blue over a Sandstone leather interior.

The odometer currently indicates 96,562 km and the Continental R comes with a Dutch registration and the normal manuals and handbooks in a ‘feel-good’ wallet.
