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
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, this car would have
been £200,000 in 1993 ! 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 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.
The car is finished in
special order Emerald green which is beautiful in the metal but has proved
very difficult to photograph, our Nikon camera giving the colour a
slightly turquoise hue. 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.
