Launched at the 1985 Geneva Motor Show, Bentley's Turbo R was based on the chassis of the Mulsanne and powered by a modified version of the engine from the Mulsanne Turbo. However, the newcomer proved to be rather more than the sum of its parts, causing the respected American magazine Motor Trend to describe it as `the first Bentley in decades deserving of the famous name'. The chassis changes were especially key to the model's success. This was to be an unashamedly sporting model, requiring tauter suspension than the Mulsanne. The Turbo R had wider tyres than the Mulsanne, which were mounted on alloy wheels - a first for the marque. The model was available with short or long wheelbase - 4,653 short and 1,211 long-wheelbase Turbo R's were produced between 1985 and 1997.
