Bentley Turbo R
turbocharged 6.75 litre V8
Silverstone grey leather
price 31500 Eur
Introduction of the Turbo R at the Geneva Salon in 1985 was the first real separation from sister brand Rolls-Royce – widely regarded as the first Bentley to mark the return to the sporting heritage that the marque originally stood for.
The turbocharged version of the 6.75 litre V8 had already been introduced in the Mulsanne Turbo, but for the Turbo R the suspension was substantially modified for real driving dynamics – for a 2450 kg motor car that is.
Featured in a four page article of latest 6/2019 issue of the main Finnish automobile magazine Tuulilasi.
Famous talk show host and classic car collector Jay Leno has a real soft spot for the Turbo R, one of the first cars that he bought new. Have a look and listen to the entertaining Youtube clip;
