Bentley Turbo RT finished in Sherwood Green with Cream hide. A very low mileage car which has covered only 28,000 miles and is a one previous owner father and daughter. One of only 252 units produced during its production run between 1997 and 1998, RT designs are now considered rare and desirable. The Bentley RT is distinguished from lesser models by colour coded bumpers with bright mesh inserts as well as sports wheels and a radiator mesh grille. The Bentley Turbo RT engine was a 400 bhp turbo 6.75 litre V8, just like the engine of their 2-door Continental T, and it could reach speeds of up to 150 miles per hour. The engine was boosted by a Garrett TO4 turbo charger and has Zytek EMS3 engine management system, developed from Formula 1 racing technology, differing from earlier models with the ‘Motronic’ system. The Bentley Turbo RT provided a much more controlled ride as Mike Dunn, the Engineering Director, demanded a 50% increase in roll stiffness. This was achieved by making an increase of 100% on the anti-roll bar rates in the front, and 60% in the back, with more damping.The rear sub-frame was anchored using a Panhard rod, which reduced sideways movements when turning corners. The last of the real Bentleys as apposed to the later Bentley badged Volkswagen models !!! This is stunning example throughout. Recent brake work, service and new immobiliser/central locking ECU with new updated key fobs.

The Bentley Turbo RT has significantly increased in value across the last decade and looks set to continue its upward trend. Not only a sure fire investment but they’re beguilling and fun, they handle well for their size, are ferociously quick and make their owners feel like few other cars can. They can rightly be called an icon, a true Bentley and have been a poster car for more than one generation. As an investment you can do little better than a Bentley RT.
