Since 1921, the Bentley name has remained synonymous with prestige, performance and luxury. The "Continental" designation recalls the Bentley Continental of the post-war period. The "R" resonates to the R-Type Bentleys from the 1950s as well as the Turbo R of the 1980s. This series boasts the most powerful engine after the Continental T and has a power output of 420bhp and a maximum torque of 650 ft-lb. The car could be pushed to a staggering top speed of some 170mph.

This beautiful two door coupé example is from 1995, even so it remains in all-round pleasing condition thanks in part to its low mileage of 41,298 miles at the time of cataloguing. Finished in stylish Royal Blue metallic coachwork with cream leather interior, blue piping and matching leather finished walnut dashboard, the opulent cabin is enormously comfortable and luxurious and the leather is presented in excellent condition.

This car has been serviced throughout its life by main dealers and specialist agents, details of which can be found in the original service booklet and wallet. However, due to the owner's poor health, it has not been used recently. Consequently, this example does require some work before its next MoT. Specifically, the brakes require attention, the wheels need a refurbishment and the wheel arches are starting to bubble. That said, once these works are completed, this Continental R will look superb.
This is a very good example of a much appreciated marque and model. Offered today at no reserve, this truly is an enormous amount of specialist motor car for family hatchback expenditure. Bidders should be aware that this car is supplied without an MoT and should contact the office for a full and fair synopsis of the car's current condition
