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 (3,061 mm) or long (3,161 mm) wheelbase - 4,653 short and 1,211 long-wheelbase Turbo R's were produced between 1985 and 1997.

Manufactured in 1994, this Turbo R was supplied new via Murray Motor Co. Bentley of Glasgow, being registered new on the 23rd of November that year. Fitted with the 6750cc turbo-charged Bentley V8 engine allied to the automatic transmission, the Turbo is finished in Red with a complementing Cream and Red leather interior upholstery. ‘BIG 5728’ has covered just 67,568 miles from new at the time of consignment and has had just six former keepers, with the Turbo R residing in current ownership from 2015. Benefitting from much expenditure while in the current ownership, ‘BIG 5728’ has received replaced rear gas spheres and engine drive belts in 2016; air-conditioning re-gassing and starter motor overhaul in 2017; brake renewal in 2017-18; and additional mechanical work since. Recently shod with new tyres, the Bentley is offered with a large history file which includes the wallet and handbooks, a letter from Bentley confirming the early servicing; numerous invoices relating to servicing and parts, MOTs dating back to 1999, and a current V5C.
