  • 68146 1

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Essen event, 11 - 12 April 2019. Estimate:20.000 - 25.000 Offered from the Youngtimer CollectionRetains its original engineHighly compelling original colours of Royal Blue over St James RedAccompanied by its original manuals After 1931, sportiness was a distant memory for Bentley motor cars. With the exception of the excellent 1952 Continental R, the cars from Crewe were mere copies of their more coveted Rolls-Royce counterparts. However, this changed in 1985 with the Bentley Turbo R (R for roadholding), as it was the first car to be built following the original philosophy of W.O. Bentley in years. Producing roughly 300 bhp and with great handling characteristics, this allowed those enthusiastic owners-drivers to enjoy a properly sorted high-end saloon.According to its original service manual, this Turbo R was produced for the 1991 model year and finished in Royal Blue over St James Red leather. While the cars early history is not known, it was exported from Japan in 2016 to Europe and purchased by its current owner roughly one year ago. Additionally, it is important to note that the car still retains its original engine and is presented in exceptional condition throughout. For the individual looking for a Turbo R in a unique colour to drive and enjoy, look no further. Aus der Youngtimer Collection Originalmotor Unwiderstehtliche Farbkombination royal blue mit St James-rotem Leder Mit originalen HandbüchernNach 1931 war Sportlichkeit mehr eine Erinnerung an glorreiche Zeiten bei Bentley. Mit Ausnahme des exzellenten Continental R von 1952 waren die Bentley aus Crewe nurmehr Kopien der gesuchteren Rolls-Royce-Versionen. Dies alles änderte sich allerdings 1985 mit der Vorstellung des Bentley Turbo R (für Roadholding, also Handling), der als erstes Auto in langer Zeit wieder nach der Maxime von W.O. Bentley gebaut wurde. Mit rund 300 PS Leistung und hervorragendem Handling stellte der Turbo R ein fantastisches Angebot für ambitionierte Owner Driver dar. Dem originalen Servicehandbuch zufolge wurde dieser Turbo R für das Modelljahr 1991 in royal blue mit Leder in St. James red hergestellt. Die frühe Historie dieses Fahrzeugs ist leider nicht bekannt. Es wurde 2016 nach Europa exportiert und vom derzeitigen Besitzer vor rund einem Jahr erworben. Es ist zu beachten, dass dieses Fahrzeug sich in hervorragendem Zustand und mit dem Originalmotor präsentiert. Wer einen Turbo R in besonderer Farbkombi zum Fahren und Genießen sucht, hat ihn hier gefunden.
