A really lovely example of the two-door Continental, the ultimate Grand Tourer385 bhp and an incredible 750 Nm of torque available from just 2000 rpmSuperbly finished in Ascot Green with a delightful Saddle Tan interiorExcellent specification including fully veneered waist rails, chestnut console and walnut dashboardComprehensive service history corroborating the indicated mileage of 71,150Offered as a No Reserve lot by our realistic private vendor. An exceptional opportunity     The two-door version of the Bentley Continental was produced from 1991 to 2003 and at the time of its launch, was the most expensive production car in the world. It was the ultimate Grand Tourer - sleek, seductive and fast. It used the engine from the Bentley Turbo R with certain updates designed by the legendary company, Cosworth Racing Engines, who confirmed that power was up to 385 BHP with and an incredible 750 Nm of Torque available from just 2000 RPM. This meant a car that weighed over two tonnes could accelerate from 0 - 60mph in just six seconds, remarkable.This car is both a UK supplied and matching numbers example that is coming from private ownership of a true Bentley enthusiast. Finished in the traditional colour for a Bentley of Ascot Green but with an unusual shade of tan leather upholstery (known officially as Saddle) specified from new. The non-standard features, as confirmed by the original factory specification in the accompanying history file, include fully veneered waist rails, a chestnut console and walnut dashboard, colour-keyed door mirrors, electric rear blind, reversing aid made audible and visible, an Ascot Green steering wheel rim, painted headlamp surrounds, Bentley wing vents and extended runners to the passenger seat. Today it benefits from a comprehensive service history which confirms the mileage of 71,150 as correct.Offered as a No Reserve lot by our realistic private vendor, this car is an excellent example and should definitely not be overlooked or confused with similar cars of average condition and provenance. An exceptional opportunity for the serious collector/enthusiast.
