Brooklands green with beige interior, 28,000 miles
one previous owner, i have owned it for 9 years,as an ex formula 1 mechanic i have done all the regular servicing and any other work required to a high standard. new front springs and refurbing the auto ride electrics has also been done.
the underneath was professionally stripped and re-undersealed 3 years ago, including the insides of the doors,wings, boot and bonnet.
it's paintwork and overall condition is excellent.
it also has £3000 worth of top quality stereo discreetly fitted (tuning the sound processor is a hobby of it's own)
based in Northamptonshire
further info and photo's are avaliable via email.

I hope I'm not out of line here but that seems WAY to cheap! Turbo 'R's are on the up and a low mileage one like that must be worth rather more than that surely?
Obviously, if I was in the market for one, my story would be rather different

Has anyone bought in UK and imported car back to Australia?

Wow ... 9 years !! Where do all the years go
Importing to Australia can be expensive, but as an ex UK resident a friend pre-registers any 30+ year old cars so he's 'owned' them for more than 6 months before he takes them over.
Not sure if this loophole applies to Australian only residents though.

Hi Phil, There's a long standing RREC member in France (handle: Jean7) who is interested in your Bentley Turbo R, unfortunately he's not a member of RROCA so can't contact you directly and he's asked me to pass on his email address to you so that ye can discuss it farther. His email address is JaenReymond@Aol.com. I would appreciate if you would make direct contact with him or pass your email address to me so that I can forward it to him and he can take it from there. He's a genuine enthusiast and is very familiar with the Turbo R. Regards, Larry.Kavanagh@hotmail.com

For the benefit of other prospective purchasers Jean Reymond was enquiring on behalf of a friend who did not pursue the deal simply because the car is right hand drive and he preferred LHD as he lives in France. I've seen photos of this car and it looks absolutely immaculate and has an excellent MOT history record. I have absolutely no connection to the seller but was concerned that I might have interfered with the prospects of a sale as a result of my earlier enquiry. If I had the garage space I would seriously consider buying this Bentley TurboR but unfortunately my storage facility is limited. I would recommend that any interested parties should definitely follow up this car.
