DESCRIPTION We are delighted to be able to offer for sale this stunning example of the Bentley Continental R, which first debuted at the 1991 Geneva Motor Show. The "Continental" designation recalls the Bentley Continental of the post-war period. The "R" was meant to recall the R Type Bentleys from the 1950s as well as the Turbo R of the 1980s.
The car's body, styled by John Heffernan and Ken Greenley, was a departure for the marque. It had a slight curvature in stark contrast to the flat-sided Rolls-Royce and Bentley vehicles of the time. While its 0.465 coefficient of drag was not impressive in itself, it was a large improvement over previous Bentleys. The Continental R also featured roof-cut door frames, a subtle spoiler effect in the rear, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
This particular, unmolested example has been in the ownership of one family since it was was taken into stock and has a very good service history, as one would expect.
STANDARD EQUIPMENT Electric Windows and Door Mirrors, Electrically Adjustable Seating with Memory Seating and Heating, 18" Alloy Wheels, Remote Alarm with Central Locking, Hi FI System, ABS.
OPTIONAL EXTRAS Burr Walnut Veneer to Facia and Door Cappings, Chrome Radiator Shell.
