Vintage and Prestige are proud to offer this 1995 Bentley Continental R Coupé For Sale.
The most expensive, luxurious and most powerful Bentley of its day, the Bentley Continental R was introduced in 1991 by Rolls-Royce. Unique in the fact that it had a body not shared with a Rolls Royce model since the 1965 S3 was showcased, the Continental R was the signature coupe of the day.
The Geneva Motor Show in 1984 gave viewers their first glimpse of the Continental R design in Rolls-Royce's 'Project 90' concept vehicle. The concept car featured an aerodynamically shaped coupe body had been styled that was based on the Bentley Turbo R floor-plan. Due to the enthusiasm it evoked, the Continental R was eventually introduced in 1991 at the Geneva Motor Show. The response was amazingly exuberant at the introduction, so much in fact that the Sultan of Brunei even purchased the red show car right off of the Geneva stand.
The post-war period was very reminiscent in the Continental especially in the name. The successful Turbo R of the 1980's and the R Type Bentleys were the inspiration behind the ‘R' behind the designation. The combination of a dramatic power-train and mesmeric design, along with custom features specified by customers, made the Continental R reach exclusive fame.
The body design was a departure for the Rolls Royce marque, and was styled by the joint efforts of John Heffernan and Ken Greenley. In comparison to the slab-sided Rolls and Bentley cars of the time, the Continental R was designed with a slight curving Coke bottle shape. A sporting look was achieved with sixteen-inch alloy wheels, and the roof-cut door frames on the Continental R were designed in the modern style with subtle spoiler effect in the rear.
With a power output of 325 hp, the 6.75 L Garret-turbocharged engine from the Bentley Turbo R was picked. Utilising the all-new 4-speed automatic transmission, the Continental R also featured ventilated disc front brakes and plain discs at the rear. The vehicle was estimated with a top speed of 145 mph, and had an estimated 6.6 second sprint to 60 mph. The Bentley Continental R was priced at £178,000 in 1992. A total of 1533 units were produced during the Continental R's production run from 1991 to 2002.
The 1994 model year, priced in the UK at £180,120, saw a number of revisions to the engine, including revisions to the cylinder heads courtesy of Cosworth (another company within the Vickers group, alongside Rolls Royce and Bentley). The alloy wheels were also increased in diameter to 17" and were of a completely new 7 spoke design. Power was now estimated at around 360 hp.
Offered in truly stunning condition, the quality really must be seen. The exterior is finished in Racing Green which is un marked and shows that this Continetal R has always been well maintained, a statement which is backed up by the service book!
The interior matches the quality of the outside finished in Cream and Green hides neither having a mark on them, green carpet lines the floor with the addition of lambs wool over rugs.
