Please note that experience shows us that the photobucket of over 100 large pixel pictures posted here are in most cases best viewed and downloaded using the very latest and most updated version of the 'Firefox' browser as some other browsers and especially older browser versions are not capable of accommodating the size of the download. Over the years our clients have overwhelmingly been appreciative of our many unaltered large pixel photos posted in our ads and our feedback has been that it is very rare that a dealer will post all but the most flattering of professionally finished photographs. We prefer to post the many photos taken of the car. in sometimes unflattering but natural sunlight. in order for our prospective buyers to be able to see true and reliable images of the car advertised and that is the reason for some seemingly duplicated shots. We trust you will agree. West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely stunning and exceptional example of this gorgeous 1990 Bentley Turbo R with only 47K original miles (76K kms) and in the striking color combination of 'Dark Oyster Metallic' factory color paint and 'Mushroom' Connolly hides! Built specifically to order for a renown Canadian businessman and purchased new in Toronto. Ontario. Canada in 1990 and only brought to the US in recent years with mileage still obviously registering and showing in kilometers. The car was recently serviced at the renown 'Frank McLain & Sons'. renown independent Rolls Royce specialists of Encino. California and it has a clean bill of health for its proud new owner!This beautiful example has a highly desirable color combination of original factory 'Dark Oyster Metallic' color exterior paint with painted pin stripes. original Bentley alloy wheels and with gorgeous 'Mushroom' Connolly leather hides and carpeting which is in virtually flawless condition throughout. The original color paint reflects like glass with only very minor imperfections. if any only noticeable upon very close inspection. All the chrome work including the front grille and bumpers is absolutely outstanding. The leather seats and dashboard show virtually no signs of any wear whatsoever. Obviously always garaged with no signs of any accident history and owned by only very careful and meticulous drivers since new - never abused! The car drives exactly like a well maintained and serviced Bentley Turbo R should and must be driven to be fully appreciated and seen to be believed! The engine is extremely strong with no oil leaks. the transmission is very smooth with Rolls Royce/Bentley's legendary almost imperceptible shift and the engine temperature always remains cool. Turn-key ready. this particular model drives exactly as it must have when it left the showroom floor almost twenty years ago. you could not possible tell the difference! Bentley's history is associated with luxury and grace but another attribute is of course high performance. Until 1982. the company. along with Rolls Royce. had been more concerned with building the best car money could buy . and then it turbo-charged the Mulsanne. The car was a phenomenal performer for such a heavyweight and the Turbo R (R standing for Roadholding) continued that tradition with a completely reworked chassis with upgraded steering and brakes and was aimed at the owner who preferred to drive themselves rather then be driven! To make such a large luxurious and heavy car go so fast (Bentley and Rolls Royce traditionally never published official figures but the output was conservatively estimated at 0-60 in 6. 7 seconds with a top speed in excess of 170 mph) a V8 with a single in block cam and two overhead valves per cylinder displacing close to 427ci (7 liters) and breathed by a Garret turbo gave the Turbo R the pace of a low-slung super-car! This gave the car dramatic acceleration and earned it a following amongst enthusiastic and obviously well-heeled (original cost of this car was over $195K) driver's! Unrestricted versions. with low profile tires have been tested at speeds in excess of 170 mph proving the turbo-charger turned the already potent engine into a powerhouse! Stiff suspension. front and rear anti-roll bars and electronically (computer) controlled variable rate self-leveling shocks for any driving condition kept the ride smooth despite the beefed up suspension and the road handling was absolutely world class exceptional too! Big 18" rims went against tradition but run on 265/45 ZR tires in the turbo R's sporting theme. This should prove the most collectible of it's generation being the quickest and most distinctive Bentley since the S-Type Continental with the Turbo R having the edge in esteem thanks to it's more capable handling. The renown 'Motor Trend' called the Turbo R "the first Bentley in decades deserving of the famous name. in their review of the car on its introduction to the United States in 1989. an extremely high compliment indeed! You will surely look long and hard to find a finer example of this low 47K miles (76K kms) 1990 Bentley Turbo R with a clean CARFAX report! For those who are unfamiliar. Rolls Royce and Bentley no longer exist as they had for over one hundred years - this is one of the last in the original line of cars built in the legendary Rolls Royce/Bentley factory in Crewe. England with a quality and craftsmanship that far surpasses that of today's mass produced models with many BMW parts - this is a rare opportunity to own a piece of automobile history. from a time when Rolls Royce and Bentley were truly building the world's finest motor cars. This increasingly collectible model is becoming harder to find in such exemplary condition. with only very limited numbers ever built. this must certainly be one of the finest examples available anywhere - so bid with confidence. this will no doubt prove a fabulous investment for the Rolls Royce or Bentley enthusiast or collector or simply a great daily driver or weekend toy for the discerning luxury classic car owner!For further information contact West Coast Classics through EBay or on 310-399-3990 during regular California business hours.
