Bentley Continental R 1997. *SOLD*
Registered 9 October 1997, 44,000 miles. Royal Blue with Slate / Silverstone main hide and Royal Blue Secondary hide & carpets. The dashboard top roll and armrests are trimmed in Royal Blue. A secondary over mat set is present so the main carpets are in unused condition.
Right Hand Drive. Originally sold to Cornes of Japan and resided there until 2015 when it was repatriated back to the UK. The sales invoice when new shows the price to have been £ 140,860 without VAT. The benefit of spending most of its life in Japan is the good climate resulting in an astonishingly good car and the Japanese tend to maintain everything to a very high standard.
Since its return to the UK in 2015 there are a significant number of service and maintenance invoices on file from Frank Dale Specialists amounting to over £ 25,000. The original Build Order and Sign-off sheets are on file. All keys and handbooks are present.
The car has also just benefited from recent works by Phantom Motors amounting to just about £10,000 to bring the car right up to an extremely high level of presentation and mechanical condition for sale. It will be very difficult to better this car
