1993 'K' Bentley Continental R - 27,000 miles, stunning vehicle

An absolutely stunning low mileage example which is without question the very best available, please go and view other examples before you see this one, they will not compare.

Covered just 27,000 miles with two service books detailing previous maintenance at 398, 1035, 1950, 2433, 3510, 4511, 5544, 6647, 7786, 8527, 9564, 10280, 10901, 11727, 12311, 12726, 13491, 13958, 16930, 22068 and 25562 miles. The first 19 stamps by Jack Barclay, the last two Michael Powles and Cameron Lunt. Together with the service history we have full build and test history from the factory and full ownership history from DVLA, we also have every MOT for the vehicle, original sales brochures and press reviews and other associated documentation.

Supplied new by Jack Barclay to the Uk importer of Rolex Watches and built to his personal specification with over 20,000 of factory options including special order Emerald green paintwork which we believe to be unique. The car remained with the first owner until 2002 and was used sparingly as the service history demonstrates. The car then passed through two owners in two years before finding a home for the next ten years among the private collection of a very wealthy enthusiast, sharing garage space with some very exotic machinery indeed and covering very little mileage throughout his tenure. In 2014 the car was sold to another collector who we have dealt with previously, hence our eventual acquisition.

To say the car has been pampered is a colossal understatement, the car has the appearance of a vehicle perhaps six months old, it really is a credit to the former keepers. We went over the car with a fine toothed comb and struggled to find a single blemish, there genuinely is not a mark on the car. The collector was as keen to have his cars "as good underneath as they are on top", to this end the car has had extensive undersealing and rust proofing which has preserved the car exceptionally well with no trace of corrosion whatsoever. The interior is likewise absolutely spotless and gives the impression the car has never been sat in. Mechanically the car is quite superb, just as you would expect with such a low mileage and fastidious main dealer service history, driving beautifully and attracting admiration wherever it goes.

This car really will put to shame any other Continental you are likely to see, we have travelled extensively and seen them all.

The car is finished in special order Emerald green which the camera has failed to capture, giving the colour a turquoise hue in our photographs which is not apparent in the metal. The interior is trimmed with parchment hide with spruce top roll, parchment bottom roll, parchment leather roof lining and spruce carpets, all of which are totally unmarked and "as new". In the boot there is a full set of green lambswool over rugs. The original owner specified Bentley crests to the wood door cappings, rear picnic tables, rear reading lights, all speaker grilles and vent outlets to be colour coded to the leather surround and a Blaupunkt television and VCR. We have tested the television and it appears to be working however it will probably need converting/upgrading to receive a digital tv signal.

Specification of the period to include split level climate control air conditioning, electric seats, two stage heated seats, cruise control, modern stereo system with CD changer, remote central locking, alarm, immobiliser, electric windows front, electric mirrors, heated mirrors, 16 inch wheels with matching Avon Turbospeed tyres all round, all with plenty of tread.

Supplied with 2 original keys, 1 remote locking fob, original book pack containing owners manuals, stamped service book etc.

The vehicle will be supplied with a new MOT with no advisory notices.

Cars in this condition very rarely come to market, it is easily the best Continental we have ever seen and it will be exceptionally difficult to replace. Values steadily appreciating, offers not invited.
