Here is a really stunning looking Bentley Turbo R finished in the factory brochure combination of Tudor red with Magnolia Connolly hides with deep red accents to include piping, top-roll and floor rugs. The twin fine lines to the waist-rails are hand-painted in interior matching beige/tan. The car has the unusual fitment of green badging from the factory. This Bentley is well known to us having been previously owned by one of our clients who regularly maintained the car. The car has travelled only 54,000 miles. The Bentley Turbo R is powered by a 6.75 litre Rolls-Royce designed V8 engine with the Bosch fuel injecton system and Garret Turbo-charger. Exuding in excess of 300 horsepower it pumped out over 500 foot pounds of torque. So she is quite spritely indeed and, quoting Modern Car's review upon its release; "such is the power of this 2.5 ton behemoth, when you power down streets in Sussex, she blows leaves off trees in Kent!". It has the look and a true behemoth it is! With the striking Tudor red and black exterior accents, this is indeed a handsome beast. Mechanically the car is very strong. Although still subject to Park-Ward’s “Predelivery Commissioning” program whereby all major and minor services are brought up to date and any maintenance items attended to, the car drives and perfoms very well. She is smooth and tight and stops surely. We did fit a brand new set of Avon Turbospeed Cr27s to her. For those who do not know, these tyres were specially developed by Avon for the Turbo R so they offer the best combination of smooth ride with handling performance. Not many replace fit them because a set of 4 is some $2,500. The new owner will not have to worry about that for a long time and yet enjoy the benefit these great tyres offer (we fitted these a week before the photos were taken). The body of the car is straight and the paint consistent. With exception of the boot lid, which was repainted at some point in its life, the car has never been repainted and sports its factory finish. When we received the car, she was rather faded looking with a white chalky glaze all over. We buffed, polished and waxed the car and she now presents very well. That said, solid reds are renown for breaking down faster than other colours so we feel the paint will eventually go chalky again. Whether this happens in 6 months or a few years will have to be seen. It also has a few minor little chips and marks here and there to include some oxidation under the paint on the top of the two rear doors. Because of her 90% original paint finish, we elected to not repaint anything. This is the very reason (and only reason) why the car has been underpriced as it has. Expect to pay at least $10,000 more for a car with perfect paint. *(Should you wish to have some of these paint areas attended to, please do let us know. Park-Ward has its own in-house paint-shop and team and we can attend to them. Personally, I would leave all as-is, preserving originality). Rubbers, mouldings, badges and external fittings are all in excellent condition. The interior of this car is stunning. The Connolly leather shows nicely. The front seats were redyed by us because they were showing some signs of ingrained staining but certainly they were without tears or rips and so remain this way. The back seats are original so you can see the car was well looked after. Throughout, the leather maintains its soft and supple characteristics. The wood throughout is very good and although not perfect with some signs of hairline fractures in the clear, it is quite acceptable and suitable as a high quality driver example. Carpets, seats, dash, front top-roll, rear parcel shelf, headliner and fixtures are truly excellent and I best encourage you to look at all the photos to fully appreciate how nicely the interior presents. The car also has had an up-market stereo system (not by us) and delivers good quality sound. As part of Park-Ward's maintenance program known as “
