Lot 52: Bentley Bentley Turbo R Sports Saloon
Introduced in 1985, the Turbo R continued the modern 'Blower Bentley' theme that had commenced with the Mulsanne Turbo, but with the added refinement of suspension better suited to the car's increased performance. A left-hand drive, 'active ride' model finished in British Racing Green with gold-coloured coachlines and green-piped magnolia hide interior, this Turbo R was with the last owner for ten years and comes from a very caring home. Not neglected like many of its brethren, it only recently benefited from new brake discs and pads, new electronics for both the air conditioning unit and the cruise control, and a new battery. With 122,000 kilometres showing on the odometer and a recent service at 114,000 kilometres, the car has been diligently cared for since new and boasts expensive factory options such as leather headlining and picnic tables for the rear passengers. A sporting yet comfortable long-distance cruiser, this mighty Bentley is presented in generally excellent condition both inside and out.
