2000 Bentley Continental R Millennium Edition For Sale by Auction

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Amelia Island event, 6 - 7 March 2020. Estimate:$100,000 - $140,000 Number nine of ten Millennium Editions builtBuilt to commemorate the turn of the centuryShowing less than 18,000 original milesBased on the Continental R Mulliner Introduced in 1991, the Continental R was the first Bentley in 26 years to not share a body style with a concurrent Rolls-Royce. The elegant two-door coachwork, inspired by the highly collectable Continental R-Type of the 1950s, was styled by John Heffernan and Ken Greenley. Five years later Bentley introduced a short-wheelbase version dubbed the Continental T that was equipped with an uprated engine developing 420 hp and an impressive 650 foot-pounds of torque available at just 2,200 rpm.Bentley customers expressed interest in equipping the “wide-body” Continental R with the T’s more powerful engine. The Continental R Mulliner was thus introduced at the 1999 Geneva Salon. The name was in homage to H. J. Mulliner, the British coachbuilder responsible for the original R-Type’s breathtaking fastback bodywork. Individually tailored to order, the R Mulliner was produced in a modest quantity of 131 examples.To commemorate the turn of the century, Bentley built ten Continental R Millennium Editions, all of which were delivered to the North American market. The Millennium Edition was based on the Continental R Mulliner and featured elegant and elaborate wood trim elements, a green starter button, a stainless-steel laser-cut matrix grille, and 18-inch chromed alloy wheels. The Millennium Edition reportedly cost an additional $20,000 over the price of the Continental R Mulliner.This Millennium Edition is the penultimate example of the ten built and is attractively finished in Silver Storm over Cinder leather. Options include a burled wood dashboard, embroidered Bentley badges on the headrests, heated front seats with memory package, a chrome shift knob, wood veneers on the steering wheel, aluminum pedals, and the spare wheel kit. With less than 18,000 miles from new, this Millennium Edition is in well-preserved condition and offers the performance of the Continental R Mulliner with even greater exclusivity.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/am20.
