Estimate:20.000 - 30.000 Offered from the Youngtimer CollectionPresented in its original colours and retains its original engineOne of just 99 examples built in LHD for the 1990 model year Bentleys have been described as the ultimate in understatement and none more so than the Turbo RL. The Bentley Turbo R (for Roadholding) was the result of development by race legend Ralph Broad that resulted in 50 per cent more power over previous models. Contemporary road testers were impressed by a combined handling and top speed of 235 km/h. The RL offered a lengthened wheelbase to an exclusive clientele; among the customers in 1990 was Sir Elton John.This car has spent its life in Japan until being exported to Switzerland in 2016 when purchased by the current owner. Ordered in Dark Oyster over a Red leather interior with matching red Wilton carpets. Among the options were walnut picnic tables for the rear passengers.Beautifully presented today, it comes complete with original owners handbook, service book, and warranty card, which confirm that the car is still presented in its original colour scheme and retains its original engine. For the enthusiast looking to jump into Bentley ownership, this would be a wonderful choice. Aus der Youngtimer Collection Originale Farbkombination und originaler Motor Einer von nur 99 für das Modelljahr 1990 gebauten LinkslenkernBentleys gelten als die ultimative Form des Understatement, und kein Modell mehr als der Bentley Turbo RL. Der Bentley Turbo R (für Roadholding, also Handling) war eine Entwicklung des legendären Rennfahrers Ralph Broad, die eine Leistungssteigerung von 50 Prozent gegenüber den Vorgängermodellen zur Folge hatte. Zeitgenössische Autotester waren beeindruckt vom besseren Handling und der Höchstgeschwindigkeit von 235 km/h. Der RL bot einen verlängerten Radstand für eine äußerst exklusive Kientel, darunter 1990 auch Sir Elton John. Dieses Fahrzeug verbrachte die meiste Zeit in Japan und wurde 2016 in die Schweiz exportiert, als es der derzeitige Besitzer erstand. Ursprünglich geordert wurde dieser RL in der ansprechenden Farbkombination dark oyster mit rotem Leder und roten Wilton Teppichen. Zu den Extras zählen u.a. Picknicktische für die hinteren Passagiere. Heute präsentiert sich das Fahrzeug in ausgesprochen schönem Zustand. Es kommt mit einer kompletten Dokumentationsmappe aus Originalbedienungsanleitung, Servicebuch und Garantiekarte, die bestätigt, dass das Fahrzeug noch die gleiche Farbkombination trägt und über den Originalmotor verfügt. Eine wunderbare Gelegenheit, in die Welt des Bentley Besitzes einzutauchen.
