1993 Bentley Continental R45k Miles, Ready to Tour or Show!
SOLD to Ontario, Canada!! This is an exceptional example of the curvaceous and high performing 1993 Bentley Continental R. The coachwork is pure Mulliner-Park Ward and has a classical elegance that looks contemporary today. When new, this was a $270,000 motorcar and this is one of only 209 examples of the LHD Continental R produced for the 1993 model year.
This Bentley is in remarkable condition, belying the fact that its 27 years old having covered a mere 45,000 miles. It has lived its life in Newport Beach, CA, Scottsdale, AZ and more recently in Cape Cod, and has been regularly serviced at Rolls-Royce and Bentley dealerships. This R comes complete with a large portfolio of service receipts for most of its life. It has been shown frequently and would likely continue to perform very well at RROC or other concours events.
The livery is striking in Arctic White, being accented tan coach stripes and 17” Bentley chrome wheels. There are only a few very small imperfections on the exterior, including a pencil tip sized chip in front, a small touched up chip on the drivers mirror and a small impression in the center of the rear bumper. None of these are noticeable without very close scrutiny (which is our job to point out).
As stunning as the exterior appears, the interior we believe to be simply gorgeous. Displayed with soft tan leather, the interior shows little to no wear. The headliner and dash pad are also matching tan leather and look fantastic. The burled walnut veneers are almost perfect. We haven’t noticed any cracks in the veneer or fading and the leather is soft and supple with almost no age related creases. This example is consistent with Bentley’s country club ambiance. We rarely ever see interiors that have been so beautifully maintained as this example. The windows are all tinted, with a small blemish in the passengers side window tint.
The true heart of the Continental R is the engine and drivetrain. The entire drivetrain is based on the Turbo R and it shared all of its components. Built with the venerable Bentley turbocharged 6.75 liter V8, the R’s had 328 bhp and incredible torque available at low RPMs. This provided the power to achieve 152 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 6.6 seconds. The power is transmitted through the tried and true GM 4L80E four-speed automatic transmission. And this performance is from a motorcar weighing more than two tons!
This Bentley comes complete with all of its books, two sets of keys, tools, safety equipment and service records. We have this priced right at the Hagerty No. 2 value, which we believe to represent this example fairly.
Everything works as it should. We completed a detailed inspection and found everything to be in proper order. We ran a CARFAX and found it to be perfect as well.
This Bentley is ready to show, drive and enjoy. For more details and information please call or text Harry Clark at +1.602.245.7200 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Bentley is available for inspection at our Phoenix showroom.
