1994 Bentley Turbo R

This Bentley’s front quarter panel and driver’s door were refinished in British Racing Green in 2022 under current ownership following damage in transport; this and a 2007 incident are noted on the Carfax (linked in “CCC Vital Info”).  It features red-accented badging (distinct from the green in 1993), bright trim, a power antenna, and polished double exhaust outlets.  Bentley made comprehensive updates and improvements for the model year on the Turbo R to rationalize the $286,000 MSRP:  driver and passenger air bags; chrome moulding along the bonnet centre line was deleted; new style 16-inch alloy wheels with a wider rim section and black background trim centres; Electronic Boost Control, designed to override the normal turbo control system during full throttle manoeuvres; Shift Energy Management (SEM), which momentarily reduces engine torque before a gear shift, achieving an almost undetectable change; steering; and Adaptive Shift Control (ASC), designed to adapt the transmission pattern in accordance with the manner in which the car is being driven.  It does show three instances of surface rust, please see the gallery photos.

The turbocharged 6.75-liter V8 sends power to the rear wheels through a four-speed automatic transmission.  Factory ratings were 360 HP @ 4300 RPM and 460 lb-ft of torque @ 3000 RPM.  In original testing, these could combine to get this substantial 5300 lb. Turbo R from 0-60 in 6.4 seconds, 1/4 mile in under 15 seconds.  Most recent repairs were driver and passenger memory seat batteries as well as an indicator relay, all replaced March 2024.  Select maintenance and repair listing appears at the base of this listing, seller notes that he has documentation for all of it.  Seller suggests that if he were keeping the car, he would address a small power steering fluid leak and change the front coil springs.  Photos of the engine bay and underside appear in the gallery.

Hi Everyone, My name is Nick, owner of the Bentley. If you have any questions, or need any extra photographs please just send me a message. I work away from home, but my wife Liz is more than happy to take photographs, or give you a viewing if you want to come and look at the car. I have just calculated the total maintenance costs for the two years I have owned the vehicle. I have spent $12,000 during this time. She is still not perfect, but I have made her a lot better than she was when I bought her and I had a great summer going on local drives with my family. My daughter needs her own car in a few months time. I offered her the Bentley, but she told me that it was an old man’s car lol, so its time for someone else to keep her going while I try and figure out what a young person’s car looks like. Thank you all for your interest. Nick.
