Since 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' resonates to the R-Type Bentleys from the 1950s as well as the Turbo R of the 1980s.
This stunning 1994 Bentley Continental R was first registered on 9th August 1994. The 6.75 litre V8 turbo is truly something to behold and brings a smile to your face. The car has been cared for with no expense spared by every owner throughout its life. Mainly serviced at Rolls-Royce & Bentley specialists, Cars South West, it has only covered 1,000 miles since its last service in 2016. Major work carried out on the car includes a new heater matrix replaced in 2001, front dampers replaced in 2009, front bumper repaired and resprayed in 2009, condenser ACU replaced in 2013, bank A gaskets and supporting seals as well as new lambs-wool rugs in 2009. The car has been serviced pretty much every year of its life with a couple of exceptions. Supplied with the registration number 173 2R; thought to be worth over £3,500 alone, this car is a pleasure to drive, and be driven in.
