Vehicle Description

Bentley Turbo RL 400 HP – May 1997. Peacock Blue with Magnolia main hide and Royal Blue Secondary hide. Dark blue Wilton Carpets.

Truly Exceptional. Currently, 76,000 miles but resembles a car of 20,000 miles. The most comprehensive Service History from new with all invoices present. A 3 owner car. The first owner sold the car when it was 14 months old.

2nd owner from September 1998 to November 2016. (Purchased from Jack Barclay). J.B service history to 2001 (All J.B invoices present from 14,000 miles to 34,000 miles).

From then, fully documented Service history solely with Phantom Motors from 2002 at 34,000 + miles to date (All invoices are present). Bentley Turbo RT Performance kit installed in 2002 (Engine components & Electronic Control Modules all Original Equipment supplied by Jack Barclay) and running 400 HP. Head Gaskets renewed in 2016. Rather exceptional and unique in condition and documented history (2 x A4 folders of invoices).

Always garaged from September 1998 onward. Over rugs from new so Wilton carpets are un-used. Woodwork and leather are exceptional. The 3rd (current owner) since 2017 is using de-humidified storage. Most certainly a Concours contender. New tyres and Main Service completed at the end of 2019.

A note of caution.  It is not recommended to buy any Bentley on Price only. What may appear to be inexpensive, usually turns out costing more to rectify age faults and wear than buying a better car in the first instance.  Cosmetic condition is paramount as this is often the most costly area of any refurbishment.
