The Bentley Turbo R was produced by Bentley Motors Limited from 1985 to 1999. The “R” stood for “roadholding”, to set it apart from its predecessor. It initially inherited the turbocharged engine from the Mulsanne Turbo and also sported a retuned suspension and wider tyres on alloy wheels, a first for a Bentley. Motor Trend called the Turbo R “the first Bentley in decades deserving of the famous name” in their review of the car on its introduction to the United States in 1989.
Although official figures were never provided by Rolls-Royce, Motor Trend estimated power output at 300 HP and 660 Nm (486.8 lb⋅ft) of torque. Priced at US$195,000 in the US market, the Turbo R slotted above the Bentley Mulsanne S and Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit but $39,000 below the Rolls-Royce Silver Spur. In 1995 the Turbo R had a starting price of 376.000 Deutsch Marks.
This very example was ordered in 9510502 ‘Midnight blue’ over 4133 Dark Blue Conolly leather. It has the famous Bentley / Rolls Royce L-series V8. In this case a ‘Six and three quarter litre’ (6,75 L) V8 with a single Garrett turbocharger and Bosch MK-Jetronic injection. It runs so silent and makes lots of torque. The engine starts and idles lovely and sounds excellent. It’s mated to a 3-speed Automatic transmission that shifts excellent.
The R in Turbo R stands for ‘Roadholding’. Compared to the Mulsanne Turbo it has a 100% stiffer rollbar in the front and 60% stiffer in the rear. The drives lovely and really does handle. The car sits on 15 inch wheels in excellent condition with fresh (2021) tires.
The body appears in excellent condition. Free of rust and excellent paint. No scratches, no dents, no bubbles. A very straight body with excellent panelgaps. Really a fantasticly solid and original body thanks to its Japanese roots and intensive anti-rust treatment.
The interior is very original and very nice as well. The leather is supple, original and not repaired or dyed. The car was obviously garaged and the leather didnt get bleached or hard. The carpets are deep blue all the switchgear feels fresh.
Japanese technical inspections (shaken) are present that document mileage earlier on. Since 2010 the car is registered in Germany and since 2022 it is with the 2nd German owner. In August of 2022 the car had a service with new tires, oil, oilfilter, sparkplugs, airfilter and a balljoint.
