Vehicle Description

Here is a really stunning looking Continental R finished in British Racing Green with 2-tone rich tan Connolly hides with deep green (Spruce green) accents (dash, console and steering wheel). This Continental R is in superb condition with 54,000 odd miles. Her condition is lovely throughout. The Bentley Continental R is powered by a 6.75 litre Rolls-Royce designed V8 engine with the Bosch fuel injection system and Garret Turbo-charger. Exuding in excess of 325 horsepower it pumped out over 500 foot pounds of torque. So she is quite spritely indeed and, quoting Modern Car's review upon its release; "such is the power of this 2.5 ton behemoth, when you power down streets in Sussex, she blows leaves off trees in Kent!". It has the look and a true behemoth it is! With the British Racing Green and completely colour-coded bumpers, this is indeed a handsome beast. 1992 also saw the introduction of the first new gearbox in some 24 years. Previously all Bentley and Rolls-Royces were 3 speed automatics but in this year model was introduced the GM 4L80-E four-speed automatic gearbox. This is a "real" Bentley when they were an integral part of Rolls-Royce; built side-by-side Rolls-Royces using Rolls-Royce parts, Rolls-Royce engineering, Rolls-Royce manufacturing and craftsman, all on the same factory production line which made Crewe famous for everything and anything Rolls-Royce AND Bentley. (See Wikipedia link: Crewe factory) This one is a well maintained example with a good clean Auto-Check report with no accidents or issues. She was a 2-owner, not 3 as shown in the history report. Records show very regular and uncompromised maintenance by Steve Foley Bentley. This car shows all the hallmarks of a well-cared for example in this regard. Under the bonnet, the presentation is amazing. It has not been precision detailed but simply kept clean and tidy throughout its life. The body of the car is straight and the paint deep in lustre and consistency. Upon walking around the car, it is hard to find any concerning blemishes and marks but for one small indentation in the right rear quarter-ette. This is not seriously noticeable but also an easy repair which we can do for you if your desire. The paint is very shiny without any fading, dents or dings and certainly presents beautifully for show and general driver use. Rubbers, mouldings, badges and external fittings are all in good condition. The interior on this car is simply stunning. The Connolly leather shows beautifully and is very original. It has never been re-dyed or messed with and yet remains super-soft and supple without any signs of wear. The wood throughout is excellent and all original showing virtually no marks. Carpets, seats, dash, headlining and fixtures are truly excellent and I best encourage you to look at all the photos to fully appreciate how nicely the interior presents. There are close-up photographs of the controls and these look like new. It does have an after-market stereo system which we are not fans of, but with that comes all the modern benefits of blue-tooth, hands free telephone access and auxiliary inputs. The car comes fitted with its original factory fitment lambswool moutons. Interesting, is it its "when-new" phone cradle mount in the boot. As part of Park-Ward's maintenance program, all electricals and features & functions are inspected so everything is operating as it should; windows, seats, mirrors, A/C, heater, lights, wipers, etc. Right down to every light bulb in the dash. This is a true, "take the keys and drive" example with no additional budget needed to attend to any nuances or gremlins. This is clearly a car that has been owned by conscientious (and wealthy!) private collector type owners, so it has all the signs of a well-maintained example. It is tight to drive, powerful to drive, brakes strong and rides as a Bentley should. The car is of very high standard and is an easy 10 out of 10 driver rating.
