Details Specification
  • One of the last ten manufactured out of a total production run of 148
  • Comprehensive history file with full Bentley service history and MOT records

The Bentley Continental series was in production for just over 10 years in three different model formats. The Continental T, the Continental R and the lesser-known Continental SC were built to order on a brand new production line at the Bentley factory in Crewe. Just under 500 Continentals were produced for the UK market.

This Continental R Mulliner, Chassis number #SCBZB25E72CH01787, was commissioned for build during September 2002 and, after approximately 1,150 man-hours, it was delivered to Michael Powles Bentley of Leicester prior to being first registered in March 2003. This ‘Conti R Mulliner’, as they are affectionately known, was one of the last 10 cars built on the production line at Crewe. Sadly as the last Continental R was being built the line was being dismantled behind it to make way for the new generation of Bentley Grand Touring Coupés. The end of an era.

Leaving Crewe finished in Sapphire Black with a Cotswold Hide interior, MH03 SGY has had just three custodians from new with the last taking ownership in 2005, during which time a full main dealer Bentley service schedule has been maintained with all bills and invoices present and correct, together with a full book pack and copy of the individual build sheet for the car. The recorded mileage at time of inspection was an incredibly low 23,808 miles !

Individually tailored to customer order, the R Mulliner was Bentley’s ultimate 20th-century combination of luxury and performance, produced in the modest quantity of 148 examples.

This is an opportunity to acquire one of the very last and one of the very best Bentley 'Wide-body' Continentals on the road today. These desirable models are rightfully stretching their legs in the classic car market, so don’t miss out before these rare sporting Bentleys arrive in six-figure territory.
