Profile

The substantial Bentley Turbo first appeared in the form of the Mulsanne Turbo in 1982. Handling was then improved and with the addition of fuel injection the car became the Turbo R (for 'roadholding') in 1985.

The Turbo R required a potent power source to move it's two and a quarter ton bulk, it got it in the form of a turbocharged 6.75L V8 producing over 350bhp. For a car of it's size acceleration was remarkable, 60mph arriving in just 6.7sec and onto a maximum speed of 150mph. It's handling belied its size and was further improved by the addition of an active ride system in 1989.

Turbo R's are now an incredible bargain. As little as 10,000 can buy one of these remarkable stately homes on wheels.
