Lot 222 - 1992 Bentley Continental R
|Odometer reading||51,000 miles|
|Estimate||£22,000 - £25,000|
From its motor car production in 1921, the Bentley name has remained synonymous with prestige, performance and luxury. The 'Continental' designation recalls the Bentley Continental of the post-war period. The 'R' recalling the R-Type Bentleys from the 1950s as well as the Turbo R of the 1980s. This series boasts the most powerful engine after the Continental T and has a power output of 420bhp and a maximum torque of 650 ft-lb. The car could be pushed to a staggering top speed of some 170mph.
This beautiful two door coupé example from March 1992 is finished in Brewster Green and has a parchment hide interior piped in green with a Spruce Green leather trimmed walnut dashboard. Immaculate Conifer carpets and lambswool over-rugs complete the luxurious interior.
Accordingly, this car is offered with a genuine 53,000 miles as documented in the full Bentley service history as well as a 12 months MoT test certificate. Interestingly, this was previously owned by a world champion farrier and has been immaculately looked after throughout its entire life. With just three owners to date, this represents an outstanding example of a highly accomplished motorcar.
