The Bentley Continental R is a large, ultra exclusive, luxury coupe with only 1,236 units made by Bentley from 1991 to 2003. It was the first Bentley to feature a body not shared with a Rolls-Royce model since the S3 of 1965, the first to use the GM 4L80-E automatic transmission and the fastest, most expensive, and most powerful Bentley of its day. It was also the most expensive production car in the world at launch costing over £173,000.00. A convertible derivative, the Bentley Azure was launched in 1995.
Based on the Bentley Turbo R platform, an aerodynamically shaped coupé body had been styled. The finished car is widely acknowledged as a very cleverly styled vehicle, disguising its huge dimensions (The Continental R is around 4" longer than a 2013 long wheelbase Mercedes S Class) and a very well proportioned, extremely attractive car. The Continental R was launched at the 1991 Geneva Motor Show and was greeted by the onlooking crowd with spontaneous applause. The Sultan of Brunei purchased the show car on-site.
The 6.75 L Garrett-Turbocharged engine from the Bentley Turbo R was chosen for use in the Continental R. Power output of 385 hp and torque of 450 lb·ft was estimated, as at that time Rolls-Royce still had a policy of not supplying official figures, preferring to describe power simply as "adequate" or "sufficient".
