Very good - Transmission or gearbox.. excellent - Interior trim. excellent Introduced for the 1995 model year, the "New" Bentley Turbo R (like its "New" Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn and "New" Rolls-Royce Silver Spur stablemates) was little changed in outward appearance. Still based around the familiar four-door monocoque bodyshell equipped with all round independent suspension (self-levelling at the rear), ventilated ABS disc brakes and power assisted steering, its turbocharged 6750cc V8 engine employed a more sophisticated Zytek EMS3 management system. Quoted as developing some 385bhp and 553lbft of torque, this fearsome unit was tamed somewhat with the adoption of ETAS (Electronic Traction Assistance System) in 1996. Reputedly capable of a towering 155mph thanks to advances in brake and tyre technology, the "New" Turbo R retained its immediate predecessor's standard fit four-speed automatic transmission (itself upgraded from three speeds in 1992). Available from autumn 1997 onwards, the 1998-model year Turbo RT model borrowed various mechanical features from its Continental T sibling and could thus boast 400 bhp and a maximum torque of 590 lb/ft (800 Nm). Visually distinguished by a mesh grille and mesh inserts to its colour-coded bumpers, the turbocharged Bentley could apparently accelerate from 0-60mph in 6 seconds. The RT models are fitted with an active ride suspension system (which limits body roll in hard cornering); 'easy-entry' tilt steering wheel; zinc galvanised coating to the body undershell.
