1992 Bentley Continental R

 

 

This 1992 Bentley Continental R is an ex-Lindsay Fox collector car and is just one of 20 examples brought into Australia from new. Under the bonnet is a turbocharged 6.75-litre V8 engine which sends 242kW (325hp) to the rear wheels. The transmission is a four-speed automatic. The odometer of this car currently shows 141,423km.

 

 

Introduced in 1991 as Bentley’s premiere luxury coupe, the Continental R is a collection of superlatives. It was the first Bentley to feature a body not shared with Rolls-Royce since the 1960s, it was the fastest, most expensive Bentley to date, and it was also the most expensive car in the world at its launch. It pays homage to the post-war Continental, but adds the important “R” which is said to stand for “roadholding”. At the time of its unveil Bentley was still tied-up with Rolls-Royce, so its surprise debut at the 1991 Geneva Motor Show took the world by storm. High-profile customers such as the Sultan of Brunei bought examples on the spot. The Mulsanne Turbo and Continental R are widely-accepted to have revived the Bentley name, and paved way for a Volkswagen buyout in the late 1990s.

 

 

This Bentley Continental R features a red metallic exterior and features a cream interior with red carpeting. The car has been repainted from its original green colour it was delivered in. There are no aftermarket modifications listed alongside this car. It rides on a set of 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli tyres.

 

 

Built new in England, this Continental R was delivered new to Lindsay Fox who embarked on a European delivery with the car. After driving the car around Europe it was shipped to Australia. It has since passed through the hands of several custodians, with the last owner respraying it to its current shade of red. All servicing appears to have been completed by Bentley workshops and specialised independents. The last recorded maintenance took place in April 2020, where a major service was performed by Neil McLean Automotives.

 

 

Exterior presentation of this Bentley is clean for its age and mileage. The red paintwork glosses nicely in the sunlight, while no marks of paint aberrations are seen. Minor paint cracking is observed around the driver’s side door lock and some chips are identified where the front bumper meets the front quarter. Both front and rear bumpers could be realigned to improve this car’s presentation. Paint chipping is seen around the fuel door. All four wheels show without kerb rash and the Pirelli tyres appear with good tread.

 

 

Inside the cabin this Bentley’s cream leather shows no stains or tears. Light crease marks are seen in the driver’s seat leather, as can be expected for a car of its age. Elements such as the woodgrain trim inserts, red carpeting, and chrome highlights all show in fine condition. Minor scuff scratches are identified on the door sills and touch points such as the seat controls, gear selector, and on the leather surrounding the aftermarket head unit.

 

 

All accompanying documents will be supplied with this car.
