Guide price: £65000 - £75000. •One of just 322 Bentley Continental T's produced pushing out 420 bhp•Finished in delectable Black Sapphire over Parchment leather interior•Comprehensive service history supports 51,068 miles•Supplied with a UK V5c and an MOT until 23rd April ‘19 The Bentley Continental 'T' is a special motor car and comparatively rare, with just 322 examples gliding out the doors of the Crewe factory between 1996 and 2002. This rarity may have had something to do with an eye-watering list price of £234,000 plus options when new! The 'T' differed from the 'R' having a shorter wheelbase, sportier handling, and an increase in BHP from 400 to 420, but more significantly with a stump-pulling 650lbs/ feet of torque, the highest of any road car at the time and higher even than any F1 car from the 1997 season. The January 1998 'Autocar' said of the car after a road test; "Astonishingly rapid for any coupé, let alone one that weighs the same as five and a half Caterham 7s!"This particular, right-hand drive, UK-supplied, Continental 'T' was first registered on 13th March 1998 and is finished in the delectable colour combination of Black Sapphire with a Parchment leather interior and blue rugs throughout. The cabin looks sumptuous with gleaming Burr Walnut veneers and drilled light-alloy pedals. The service history is comprehensive and details a rear axle replacement by the main dealer Harwoods Bentley. Open the boot and the original Bentley umbrellas and fire extinguisher remain, its three former keepers have obviously really cared for this elegant motor car. The odometer currently indicates 51,068 miles and the Bentley is supplied with a UK V5c, an MoT until 23rd April 2019 and the normal manuals and handbooks in a 'feel-good' wallet. This is a rare opportunity to enjoy the last of the line of the true 'British' Bentleys.
