The Bentley Turbo R Long Wheelbase offered here, chassis 59608, was built in late 1996 and delivered to Leeds dealer, Appleyard Ribbon on the 30th November. The exterior of the car was initially finished in beautiful Sherwood Green with twin Magnolia trim lines, colours which it retains to this day. The interior was finished in Magnolia with Spruce piping and Burr Walnut wood and is in a beautiful condition, a true testament to the sub-60,000 miles covered by this car.

The car was invoiced to Appleyard Ribbon on 29th November for £126,251.87 and since arriving in our vendor's ownership he has obtained copies of the original build sheet records confirming the car to match its original specification.
