Lot 075: 1988 BENTLEY TURBO R
Finished in silver sand with parchment leather upholstery, this particular example is variously described by the vendor as being in good (engine, automatic transmission, electrical equipment, chassis, bodywork), very good (interior trim) or good / excellent (paintwork) condition. Reported to have had six previous owners, it was purchased by the present keeper from Hanwells of London in December 2002. Said to "run and start very well", recent work has included a gearbox overhaul by Steve Gallimore in January 2005 and some ú2,000 worth of bodywork refurbishment (wheelarches repaired / repainted etc) carried out last month. Further benefiting from "new dark brown over rugs", it has apparently covered 121,385 miles from new. Being offered for sale to accommodate "an extra vintage 25/30hp Rolls-Royce", this "always garaged and sheeted" Turbo R comes with MOT certificate valid until January 2006 and road tax until 31st January 2006.
