The Appeal 

The Turbo R LWB was the best of the best from the Crew outfit at the time of production. The 6750cc turbocharged V8 was tuned up to produce an immense 750Nm of torque and fitted with a Bosch fuel-injection system giving 355BHP. Performance, predictably, was very impressive.
This being a later car with the floor-mounted gear change also has the upgraded four-speed automatic gearbox making it more fuel efficient on long journeys and generally more comfortable to drive.  Supplied new by Jack Barclay Ltd, it was optioned new to have the much more attractive mesh radiator grill, badge bar, rear quarter badges and leather-bound seat controls. This car has been in long-term storage for the past decade, always kept indoors and on charge. 
Since re-emerging, it has covered around 300 miles in the last month driving without fault through all this. The bodywork has been treated to a three-stage dry cut, wet polish and ceramic coating giving the paint a mirror finish. Most recently, the Bentley flew through its MOT without fault on 29th May 2024 and has received an oil and filter service in readiness for its next owner.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

Pre-authorisation

We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
