The commissioning of a beautiful object is a singular event; an occasion to celebrate. Be it sculpted bronze, an ocean-going yacht, a contemporary furniture classic, or an architectural icon, each commission is an individual interpretation, shaped by human minds and hands. Each one the fulfilment of a vision, each one an original. This has always been the essence of each Bentley motor cars.
The designation Continental R could be traced back to the Bentley Continental of the post-war period, whose legendary fame had resulted from the combination of a most impressive powertrain and highly attractive coachwork design and features of which had been specified by customers. Such an opportunity – though altered to present time demands – was offered again, when in March 1999 the Mulliner Continental model range was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show. A Bentley driver could specify his personal motor car in direct contact with engineers and designers at the Crewe factory.
The Bentley Continental R Mulliner was equipped with the most powerful engine as hitherto only found on the Bentley Continental T. A power output of 420bhp/313kW and a maximum torque of 875Nm was more than any other manufacturer in the world did offer. The car could be pushed up to a top speed of some 170mph.
