The handsome architecture of these nineties Bentleys looks its best in a darker hue, and the deep Royal Blue paintwork on this 1992 Turbo ‘R’ does the job well. The twin ‘coach-lines’ in Cardinal Red serve to elongate the design, giving the substantial saloon an altogether lower and sleeker look. As is traditional with these stylish motor cars, the interior is a cross between the library at Crockfords and a Cunard stateroom, and the lush blue-piped Magnolia leather trim, deep carpets, and superb veneers belie the genuine sub-55,000 miles the car has travelled.
This is effectively a one-owner car. It did spend a period from 2012 to 2015 in France with a French registration, but the DVLA were never notified of its export and subsequent return, so in effect, it still appears as a single owner car registered with its current registration number on the 6th April 1992. The V5C corroborates that there are no former keepers.
It has patently been well cared for throughout its life, attested to by no fewer than 18 recognised services. On the car’s return from France in May 2015, it was entrusted to Gordon Dale Services in London who were instructed to return it to its absolute best. As well as a thorough ‘C’ Service, they went through the car completely and carried out whatever work was necessary in exchange for £7,700. (Full details are in the history file). Only 3,000 miles have been covered since that point, however, a further £4,500 has been invested with Rolls-Royce and Bentley specialists, D.E.W Services of Eynsham to detail the car for sale and attend to a number of smaller items. Once again full details are available for your inspection.
This magnificent Turbo R is accompanied by its leather wallet book pack which includes the original Bill of Sale (£110,259.78) and the pre-delivery check card by Mann Egerton in Kings Cross. Also included are handbooks, the original service book, and a large file of invoices and receipts documenting the regular care and attention lavished on this cossetted motor car.
In a lovely colour combination and from fastidious ownership, this elegant Bentley represents remarkable value.
