The Bentley Motor Company was founded in 1919 and located in
Northern London. They would go on to be one of the top of the line
Luxury automobiles ever produced. Thanks to the Bentley Boys who
favored Bentley vehicles the Bentley also left a legacy of winning
the 24 hours Lemans race for 4 consecutive years between 1927 and
1930. Bentley went through a lot of evolution over time at one
point joining forces and then separating from Rolls Royce until
they were ultimately acquired by the Volkswagen Group in 1998. When
the 80's arrived Bentley decided it wanted to rekindle its high
performance heritage which resulted in their popularity and
desirability returning in full force. In 1995 the Bentley Azure
Continental R convertible was introduced and was Bentley's flagship
2 door convertible Grand Tourer model. MSRP was $347,645 new and
these were released in limited production with only 209 put out in
1998. This 1998 has been extremely well cared for since new and has
70,932 original miles. The car spent a majority of its life in
Southern California, Oklahoma and Texas. In the last 5 years it has
only been driven approximately 5,000 miles. The body is in great
shape and painted in a very nice White paint with a very slick
finish. That is combined with a nice Tan power convertible top that
raises and lowers with ease. The car rides on its original 17 inch
wheels which are in great shape as well.
The car runs down the road thanks to the powerful Stalwart 6.75
liter Turbo V8 motor. It utilizes a single intercooled Garrett
turbo charger and the car runs great, plus is very quick for a
vehicle of its size. It always receives all needed maintenance and
tune-ups. It is combined with a 4L80E automatic transmission that
shifts smoothly. These cars just glide down the road, as you would
expect from one of the worlds highest level luxury cars, while also
offering a high performance response when you put your foot into
it. It is packed with all the power luxury options you could ask
for and all are working properly.
The interior of the car is remarkably clean with very high quality
Tan leather throughout. Everything is in great condition including
the front and rear bucket seats. It is all stock except for the
addition of an Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo with Aux, USB, and Bluetooth
connections. It even has all of its original woodgrain trim which
looks just as good as the rest. From the stitching on the seats to
the chrome accents everything is of the highest quality. The trunk
appears to rarely have been used and is fully carpeted.
These Bentleys continue to be king of the road when it comes to
luxury and this one is being offered up at a fraction of what it
would have cost you to purchase originally. It is a beautiful
example of one of these cars and with how well it has been
maintained it is sure to have a long life ahead of it.
This is a lot of car with a ton of features for only
NOW REDUCED DOWN TO $59,950.00!
