1997 Bentley Turbo RT news, pictures, specifications, and information

The Bentley Turbo R was introduced at the 1985 Geneva Motor Show and produced from 1985 through 1997 with 7,230 examples produced. Shortly after the Turbo R was introduced, production of the Mulsanne Turbo ceased. The Turbo R was available in either short- or long-wheelbase form. It was a sporty vehicle, with its sport-tuned suspension, wide tires, alloy wheels, and turbo-charged engine that offered plenty of performance. After a short time of production, the engine was revised with a new Bosch MK-Motronic fuel-injection system with added additional torque. This brought horsepower and torque to around 300 hp and nearly 500 foot-pounds, unofficially.

The cost to own a Turbo R was $145,000 and eventually became one of Rolls-Royce's (the company that owned Bentley) best-selling model ever.
