The names H J Mulliner and Bentley go hand in hand and have a relationship spanning over 75 years. The Bentley Continental R Mulliner is the modern day version of a gentleman’s express carrying the iconic name. Acknowledged to have saved Rolls-Royce Motor Cars and formed the groundwork which led to the buyout and parting of the Rolls-Royce and Bentley brands in 1998, Bentley was once again capable of standing alone as a marque.
Our car was delivered new to one of the most senior members of the United Nations and has been cherished and delicately maintained in an exquisite collection on the continent prior to now being offered for sale here in London.
Showing just 29,226 KM/18,150 Miles from new, this fabulous example really has been sparingly used in the knowledge of its historic importance to Bentley Motors. The hand crafted 6,750cc turbo charged engine gave 420bhp and a staggering 650 Lbs/ft of torque enabling such 0-60mph times of 5.6 seconds and a top speed of over 170mph, all whilst luxuriously seating 4 adults.
The beautiful The upgraded suspension, performance brakes and 18 inch 5-spoke wheels enhance the overall performance and enjoyment of the car, whilst the wide bodied wheel arches make it striking and extremely recognisable on the road, visually this car does not disappoint.
This magnificent Continental is definitely one of the finest low mileage examples in existence today. It will surely be an extremely rewarding investment opportunity for any serious collector.
