Since 1921, the Bentley name has remained synonymous with prestige, performance and luxury. The 'Continental' designation recalls the Bentley Continental of the post-war period. The 'R' resonates to the R-Type Bentleys from the 1950s as well as the Turbo R of the 1980s. Bentley's 1980s resurgence relied exclusively on models whose basic architecture was shared with other Rolls-Royce models however; the Bentley Continental R was unique to the Bentley marque.  Despite the need to incorporate non-traditional features such as doors recessed into the roof, the result looked every bit a Bentley, albeit one re-stated for the 1990s. Needless to say, the performance  was outstanding, the combination of the Turbo R engine in the new wind-cheating shape cutting the 0-60mph time to under six seconds and boosting a top speed in excess of 150mph.

Presented in Georgian Silver with opulent Ivory leather interior, this outstanding example spent its first five years in the Channel Islands and has covered a mere 67,000 miles.  This Continental R has been serviced by Bentley since production, details of which can be reviewed in the history file which also contains a collection of bills substantiating the careful ownership. Offered in superb condition throughout and described as a 9½ out of 10 car by the vendor, viewing of this example is highly recomended.
