A stunning example of a 1988 Bentley Turbo R presented in Windsor Blue Metallic with contrasting Parchment Hide piped dark blue.
This much loved Bentley wants for nothing and has been cared for regardless of cost by its previous owner.
It is the more desirable pre active suspension car.
Service schedule carried out:
The car has been maintained by P J Murrays Rolls Royce and Bentley specialist since 2012. Current mileage 76,500.
The car will have a fresh MOT upon sale (no advisories on previous mot)
It is astonishing to believe the engineering and quality which goes into one of these cars. 0-60 in approx. 6.6 seconds for something that weight 2.4 tons is mind boggling. . Motor Trend called the Turbo R "the first Bentley in decades deserving of the famous name"
The suspension changes, though seemingly subtle, transformed the soft and less than well-controlled ride of the Mulsanne Turbo into that of a real performer. Development on improving handling had already begun when Mike Dunn was appointed engineering director in Crewe in February 1983, but instead of the proposed 10% increase in roll stiffness, he demanded 50%. This goal was met by upping the anti-roll barrates by 100% in front and 60% in the rear, and by increasing the damping. A Panhard rod to anchor the rear sub-frame was also introduced, reducing side-to-side movement in corners. Spring rates remained the same as on the Mulsann.
The car comes with all the original book packs and service books as well as a very extensive collections of press booklets, magazines and books about the Turbo R.
A wealth of receipts and MOT’s are included within the sale.
All wood cappings have been returned to Rolls Royce to be refinished. Front and rear mobile phones are present.
A rust free car in outstanding condition. The engine bay is spotlessly detailed. Original floor mats are in as new condition as they have been protected by lambs wool over rugs.
The interior is a wonderful place to be with luxurious materials and craftsmanship throughout.
If you are looking for a correct Turbo R then you have found it. Yes there are cheaper Turbo R’s on the market however, you get what you pay for. This is a gentleman’s car through and through.
