When Bentley started investigating during the mid-eighties whether there was a need for a full sized Bentley coupe, reactions had been so enthusiastic that within five years the company had developed a completely new coupe and this was unveiled to the public as the Bentley Continental R at the Geneva Motor Show in March, 1991.
The Continental R was designed on the 4 door (Spirit / Turbo R) platform with a totally new aerodynamically shaped 2 + 2 coupe body and new style interior. The first time since the 1950's that a Bentley did not share the body with Rolls-Royce. The factory had gone to a previously unheard amount of expenses in market research and development.
The well-proven turbocharged engine from the Bentley Turbo R had been chosen to power this new coupe.
This particular Continental R is a well maintained and headturning Bentley to see and drive. Airconditioning, cruise control, leather headliner, 17 inch wheels, auto-ride control, liquid turbo cooling,385 bhp.
