2000 Bentley Continental R Mulliner Widebody £59,000
The Continental R Mulliner model range, offered from March 1999, was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show. The Bentley Continental R Mulliner was equipped with the most powerful engine after the Continental T. This engine had a power output of 420 hp (313 kW) and a maximum torque of 650 lb·ft (881 N·m). The car could be pushed to a top speed of some 170 mph (274 km/h). 0-60 mph (97 km/h) times dropped to 5.6 seconds, Not that you would ever drive this Gentleman Carriage that way because not only is this a Mulliner but also a widebody specification which makes it super rare, the Continental R Mulliner was born out some some customers(wanting the T) need for the longer leg room space offered in the R. The T was 4 inches shorter and this one with the widebody spec gives it such a road presence and with its elegant lines and Black Sapphire interior which is a deep Royal Blue really, dash finished off in stunning Aluminuim.
Between 1999 and the end of production in 2003, Bentley indulged customers in a variety of special customised cars under their Personal Commission programme with a number of cars fitted with the 420 hp engine including the Le Mans, Continental R,420 and Millennium. A total of 194 Continental R motor cars had the 420 engine — some of which were also wide body cars.
The car we have for sale for our client has been well cared for and has an extensive file and great opportunity to own a piece of Bentley History to be driven and enjoyed as it should be.
