1990 Bentley Turbo R, one of the last handmade British Bentleys manufactured before Bentley was bought by VW. In excellent condition, relatively low mileage, absolutely no mechanical issues whatsoever.
In 1991 "Car" magazine pronounced the Turbo R to be "The Best Car in The World", having successfully triumphed over the then spanking new W140 Mercedes 600 SEL V12 48 valve (408bhp)...the Jaguar XJ40 Sovereign and Lexus didn't even come close! In 2019 this Turbo R is still a magnificent beast and is an absolute joy to be at the helm of, seamless brute power when you put your foot down and serene cruising when you desire... in the driver's seat, at almost Range Rover seat height, you certainly feel that every journey is an occasion and look down smugly at the humdrum saloons you effortlessly dispatch...
