Up for grabs is a unique opportunity to own a celebrity car, a 1989 Bentley Turbo R owned by Ryan O' Neal who was also Farrah Fawcett's boyfriend until her last days. Originally priced new in 1989 at 156,000 dollars, this is a timeless classic that will always turn heads. Calculating inflation that is 300,222 dollars today! The Bentley Turbo R has many high-profile followers and remains one of the few new cars Jay Leno has ever purchased! The Bentley was full of cutting edge technology paired with classic styling. Features like hydraulic self-leveling system and enlarged anti-roll bars make this luxury car a hybrid sports car. The Turbo R model offered a 6.75L V8 engine, paired with a turbo produced 487ft-lb of torque! Yes it is heavy but it's also fast. Over 6000 lbs, this car is capable of reaching speeds up to 137 mph. The Turbo R received anti-lock brakes and new Bosch MK-Motronic fuel injection to replace the Solex carburetors. It made a large difference in year round performance and reliability. This Bentley is painted in classic Tuxedo Black and offers rich black leather interior with natural wood accents. The handcrafted wood accents are nothing to shake a stick at. It takes about two weeks to prep the luxury wood for use, during which time the veneers are given five coats of lacquer and three days to cure prior to being wax polished by hand. The veneers retain their natural rich coloring, as Bentley uses no bleaching on the rare woods. Opening the rear door of this sedan you'd swear it was a new Bentley. When you close the door is sounds and feels as solid as a British tank. The car also offers alloy wheels for added performance. They are chrome plated of course. We have a picture showing Ryan and Farrah, enjoying this vehicle.
