The Attractions

Its discreet and elegant design, powerful 6.75-litre turbocharged V8 engine and first-class road-holding have made the Bentley Turbo R the ideal choice for an exclusive and discerning clientele. Its revolutionary suspension has been refined over time and at the time of its launch it was regarded as one of the best Bentleys produced in recent decades.

This 1986 Turbo R, imported to Italy from the UK in 2010, has been maintained with great care. Its maintenance history is very comprehensive and shows numerous interventions, most of them carried out at Bentley workshops: it is in excellent condition and has been visibly much loved. It has been thoroughly inspected and many new components have been installed in recent years.

The vehicle has received numerous checks, including a recent thorough inspection carried out in 2024 by a Bentley Motors technical representative. The paint is still shiny, with slight signs of use, and inside, the characteristic patina of Connolly leather adds to the appeal. It is a truly interesting proposition and will certainly be equally loved and appreciated by its next lucky owner.
