1989 Bentley Turbo R

In celebration of Wimbledon we’ll feature another British build.  Seller offering a 1989 Bentley Turbo R with 73,000 miles for $22,000.  This example is with Acrylic White exterior over Parchment leather.  Seller says the car drives well, exterior paint is beautiful, interior leather is supple and in excellent condition with no cracks or tears, and interior wood is in almost new condition.  Seller has performed a number of maintenance items in the past 24 months including new OEM thermostat, mounted and balanced new tires, new alternator, new battery, rebuilt various interior light switches, rear gas springs replaced, new window lift switches, brake pump seals renewed, and all flexible brake hoses replaced.  Seller says that the front accumulators need to be replaced and will include both accumulators and valves in the sale.

The Bentley Turbo R was produced from 1985 – 1999.   The “R” stands for “roadholding”.  If you are curious about where the Turbo R fits in the pecking order of Rolls Royce and Bentleys at the time, it initially priced at $195,000, which was above the Bentley Mulsanne S and Rolls Royce Silver spirit but below the Rolls Royce Silver Spur.  1989 was the first year of a body change which introduced twin round headlamps and a bigger front spoiler.  The 1989 model continued with the 6.75L twin turbo Bentley V8 which produced a reported 325 hp – every hp is needed to propel the over 5,000 lbs from 0-60 in 7.7 seconds.  Bentley is all about fit and finish and the exterior of this vehicle looks great.  This 1989 Bentley Turbo R is for sale in Kansas City, MO.  Check out the listing on Craigslist for more details and contact information.
