Bentley Continental R


Stunning Bentley Continental R, with a current low mileage of 38,804 miles. Finished in Diamond Blue Silver with Light Grey hide piped Slate Grey, with matching Slate Grey dash top roll, Shale Grey carpets, fitted with matching lambswool rugs. Benefitting from only light use and regular maintenance up to 2008, the mileage at this time was just 35,643miles and the service history consistent. Fast-forward ten years and the mileage had risen only 1,072 miles.  We know that in this period the car was often started and run to temperature, had the wheels rotated, and even had fluids drained and exchanged on occasion. The car was supplied new by Reg Vardy Specialist Car Division of Houghton-Le-Spring Tyne & Wear on the 7th January 1996. Recent service history reads as follows starting with the most recent works…

Superb example of this rare model, with beautiful paint work and stunning interior, this must be one of the nicest low mileage Continentals offered at present. With only 4 keepers , low mileage and a full and extensive history this is a definite investment car as surely these cars will only climb in value. With the history there are the service books, handbooks and a large file of detailed work sheets/invoices. Both sets of keys are present as is the tool kit and jack. Current MOT April 2022.
