1996 Bentley Continental R

Sold new by P & A Wood in 1996 for £204,000 . These rare cars where the most expensive production cars in the world when launched in 1992 . The last hand built Bentley before VW took over in 2003 with only some 1200 examples produced

Nicknamed the Crewe's Missile due to its almost inappropriate performance for such a large car approx 400bhp and 0-60 in 6 seconds

Finished in peacock blue with cream leather interior with blue piping the best colour combination , furnished with all the usual refinements to many to list here .

Purchased by myself 3 years ago as a weekend toy I had the leather treated by Leicester Auto trim and seeking reliability a compehensive service carried out by Starmans Bentley . This included a full brake overhaul and head gaskets with new radiator and a variety of other items invoices totalling £9462 .

A set of RT alloys with new tyres are currently fitted however I do have the riginal R rims to switch if you prefer them .

They offer a truly phenomenal driving experience and road presence to match .
