1992 Bentley Continental R For Sale In London (LHD) For Sale

1992 Bentley Continental R For Sale In London (LHD) 1 owner from new Car number 17# European specification delivered new in Monaco 1 of the first LHD cars built An extremely special example of huge historic importance UK registered and ready for immediate use With the 1970's coming to a close, Bentley found itself in a position where it had to urgently seek a solution to re-establish it's credentials, as it had only accounted for a 3% of Rolls-Royce Motor cars production. To avoid extinction, the once-famous marque needed to re-establish it's credentials and position it had acquired long ago for creating high-performance cars. In a strategy that came to succeed brilliantly, Bentley came up with the name 'Mulsanne,' which was chosen as a counterpart for the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit. Launched at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1982, the unveiling of the Mulsanne Turbo was received as the resurgence of the 'Blower Bentley.' Throughout the 1980's, Bentley relied primarily on models whose basic design was shared with Rolls-Royce products, but to invoke the appropriate public response Bentley had sought to the idea of a high-performance car, it put on display 'Project 90,' which was unveiled at Geneva in 1985. However, when the real thing was unveiled six years later, the Bentley Continental R invoked a spontaneous applause from the crowd upon it's revelation. The Continental R benefitted from computer styling assistance and wind tunnel testing to devise a  sleek, streamliner-like shape. Among other non-traditional features that were added to the Continental R, such as the doors being recessed into the roof, the result remained as much a Bentley, although much restated for the 1990s. The Continental R was given a new gearbox, a four-speed automatic that included an 'overdrive' top ratio, and a revelational performance. The John Heffernan/Ken Greenley-penned Continental R had an outstanding combination given by the 385bhp Turbo R engine the cut the 0-60mph time to 6.1 seconds and a top speed of an impressive 151mph. The example on offer is finished in White with Magnolia Hide interior, and was supplied new in Monte Carlo. Owned by the same family ever since and still in beautiful order throughout.
