Estimate:
$150,000 - $175,000

  • One of just 34 examples built
  • Less than 5,250 miles from new
  • Arguably the most desirable variant of the Continental R


Bentley made a triumphant return to Le Mans in 2001 with its EXP Speed 8 sports prototype, returning the legendary marque to the Circuit de la Sarthe for the first time in 71 years. Finishing a very impressive 3rd overall, Bentley had greater aspirations and was able to secure an overall win at Le Mans two years later. That victory in 2003 would be the marques sixth, placing Bentley fifth in overall wins at motor racings most grueling endurance event.

The Continental R Le Mans Series was launched to celebrate Bentleys return to Le Mans. These cars are easily recognizable by their Le Mans Series badging on the front three-quarter panels, quad tailpipes, wider wheel arches, and five-spoke wheels with red brake calipers. Inside, each car was outfitted with straight-grain walnut trim, two-tone upholstery with winged B motifs, drilled pedals, unique treadplate plaques, and unique instruments finished in dark green.

This stunning example presents exceptionally well throughout. Buyers could choose from three different colors: Silver Storm, Black Oriole, and the sporty shade seen here, Le Mans Racing Green. Coupled with a two-tone Green and Beige interior, it exudes British sophistication. Within the realm of the 34 Continental R Le Mans Series built, this example is one of just 19 LHD cars produced in the final year of production and the sixth-from-last Le Mans Series built.

A US-delivery example, this car was first registered in Virginia in February 2002, according to the accompanying CARFAX. It remained there until 2013, when it was sold to Pennsylvania. Having been driven approximately 5,000 miles by 2016, the car was purchased by its current owner and exported to Switzerland. Today it shows less than 5,250 miles from new and is surely among the lowest-mileage Le Mans Series Continentals in existence.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/am20.
