Offering a superior mix of supreme luxury and true performance, this 1990 Bentley Turbo R is a true classic worthy of the flying B icon leading the way. So dig into all the details on this classic, but we already know youre hooked on how affordable this distinct upper-class machine is. Hand-crafted alongside the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit, these Bentleys will always be rolling opulence. And so nothing showcases the crisp affluence better that a creamy application of Acrylic White with a subtle blue pinstripe. And because this sedan has averaged less than 2,700 miles annually, it retains a nice gloss on whats believed to be the original application. But this Bentley differentiates itself from the Rolls crowd with a more aggressive blacked-out treatment on bumpers and headlight surrounds. Plus, the winged B emblem with red background is legendary for performance. But this one also cant resist some bright flair with mirrored factory alloys and the iconic chain mesh grille.

And there, youll notice features that you dont find in a Rolls, like a tachometer and a 170-mph speedometer. Under the hood is a dignified beast.

So you really get to choose between effortless cruising and freight train-like power just with the prod of the throttle. The Turbo R also received suspension upgrades so that the fully independent setup offers a sporting feeling without losing the luxury namesake. Plus, the correct power steering ratio and four-wheel disc brakes w/ABS really keeps this sedan feeling well-balanced. Rare, maintained, and dignified, the Turbo R is a terrific Bentley.
