Description
 
The Bentley Continental R was an ultra-exclusive limited production coupé which was the first model not shared with a Rolls-Royce derivative since the S3 standard steel saloon of 1965. At its launch in Geneva in 1991 the car was the fastest, most expensive, and most powerful Bentley ever produced by the factory at Crewe. It was also the most expensive production motor car in the world when launched. The 1996 model year specification included an intercooler as standard equipment, along with the improved Zytek EMS 3 engine management system, which gave improvements in throttle response, fuel efficiency and incorporated a digitally controlled turbo over-boost system. It produced an increase in power output which for the first time Bentley Motor Cars officially quoted “as 385bhp and torque at 550lbft at 2000rpm. With a 0-60mph now stated as sub 6 seconds" and a top speed of 155mph. Further upgrades to the 1996 model year also saw revised 17" alloy wheels and steering wheel tilt adjustment for the first time. This was electrically adjustable and so could now be set as part of the seat and wing mirror memory positions.
