History of the Bentley Continental R
The Bentley Continental R was a premium coupé produced by Bentley Motors in the United Kingdom from 1991 until 2003. The first Bentley to bear the Continental name since 1966 as well as being individually styled, it also bore the R suffix in homage to the well-remembered Bentley R-Type. It came with an impressively boosted V8 engine and was available in both Continental S and Continental T versions, plus from 1995 a convertible called the Azure. The Continental R was the first Bentley to employ the GM 4L80-E gearbox and the first to have a body that was not shared with a Rolls-Royce vehicle since the 1965 S3 Continental. The Continental R was the quickest, most costly, and most powerful Bentley vehicle available at the time. At the time of its release, it was also the most expensive production automobile in the world!
