Description

"The Bentley Turbo R initially inherited the turbocharged engine from the Mulsanne Turbo and also sported a retuned suspension and wider tyres on alloy wheels, quite a departure for a Bentley. From the 1987 model year, however, the Turbo R's V8 engine was retuned with new Bosch MK-Motronic fuel injection for added torque. Other modifications carried out at the same time included new sports seats and a higher rear axle ratio. Motor Trend called the Turbo R ‘the first Bentley in decades deserving of the famous name’. The suspension changes, though seemingly subtle, transformed the heavy car into a real performer and slotted above the Bentley Mulsanne S and Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit and it carved a well-deserved niche in the world of performance saloons.
This regal Turbo R long wheelbase with the desirable floor change gearbox was first registered on 9th December 1996. It is presented with Royal Blue coachwork which is complemented by sumptuous Parchment leather interior. The cabin exudes all the sense of luxury and exuberance that you would expect from this fantastic model and the colour combination is perhaps the most desirable for such a motorcar. Since our vendor became the proud owner of this Bentley in 2017 it has been well cared for and we are informed that recent expenditure amounts to £4,500 for which invoices can be found in the history file. The private registration of SHN 564 is included with the car which is also offered with an MoT test certificate valid until July 2020. This is a fabulous opportunity to own and enjoy a desirable luxury Bentley."
