THE ESSENTIALS

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 harry@classicpromenade.com. The Bentley is available for inspection at our Phoenix showroom.

Interesting Fact: The Bentley Continental R is a luxurious vehicle that was manufactured from 1991 to 2003 by Bentley Motors in England. This model was the priciest, yet most powerful and high-performing Bentley of its day.

This is the first Bentley where the body was not shared with a Rolls-Royce model, a trend that had continued since the 1965 S3 Continental. This model was released for $271,780 or £178,000 at the time of launch, which is equal to $501,914 or £370,804 today.

A top speed of 145 mph with a 0-to-60 time of 6.6 seconds made the Bentley Continental R stand out from other vehicles. A condensed version of the Continental R known as the Continental T was released in 1996 that features an additional 15 horsepower and a sportier look by sacrificing rear passenger legroom. This model reduced the 0-to-60 time by .4 seconds and raised the top speed to 170 mph.

The EPA ended up classifying the Continental T as a subcompact car due to its shorter wheelbase and the compact interior. Another large difference between the Continental R and T was that the latter had chrome-finished instruments and aluminum trim as opposed to the wood finish on its predecessor.

Both the Bentley Continental R and T are still heavily sought-after models, and their performance holds up to cars being manufactured today!
