1998 Bentley Continental T24k Miles, CA Car Since New, Perfect CARFAX, Showroom Condition!
SOLD by Private Treaty!! This is a pristine showroom condition example of the incredibly high performance 1998 Bentley Continental T. The livery is an absolutely stunning Crimson Pearl metallic, being accented with the matrix grill and chrome 18” Bentley wheels. And the Wide Body configuration built by Mulliner-Park Ward swallows the wheels and makes for an aggressive looking stance. When new, this was a $325,000 hand built motorcar and this is one of 50 LHD examples built in 1998.
This Bentley is virtually as new, belying the fact that its 20 years old having covered a mere 24,000 miles. It has lived its life in the San Diego and Orange County, CA region from new, with only one registered owner. It would likely perform very well at concours events.
As stunning as the exterior appears, the interior we believe to be gorgeous. Displayed with soft tan leather with suede bolsters and contrasted with St James Red piping, the interior shows almost no wear. We love the wood accents rather than the engine turned aluminum in most Continental T’s. The burled walnut veneers are almost perfect. We noticed one very small imperfection only noticeable upon close inspection. This example is consistent with Bentley’s country club ambiance. We would like to see the mouton sheepskin overlays added on top of the red Wilton Wool carpeting.
The true heart of the Continental T is the engine and drivetrain. Built with the venerable Bentley turbocharged 6.75 liter V8, the T’s had 420 bhp and an incredible 650 ft lbs of torque available at only 2,200 RPMs. This provided the power to achieve 170 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 5.6 seconds. And this from a motorcar weighing more than two tons.
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.
