History of the 1997 Bentley Turbo R LWB
The Bentley Turbo R was a high-performance model produced from 1985 to 1997 totalling 7,230 units in the 12 year production period. The ‘R’ stood for ‘Road-holding’ to set it apart from its predecessor, the Mulsanne, courtesy of substantially stiffer anti-roll bar settings, a Panhard rod system and increased damping. Wider tyres on alloy wheels were also a first for a Bentley on the Turbo R. The suspension changes transformed the soft ride of the Mulsanne into that of a real performer with motoring press proclaiming this model to be more faithful to Bentley’s racing pedigree. In 1995, a ‘new’ Turbo R was launched featuring, amongst other things, fuel injection. This contributed towards a mighty 385bhp output.
