Royal Brunei Bentley Turbo R Hooper For Sale has a very interesting Bentley for sale.

Here is the advertisment.

1988 BENTLEY TURBO R LWB 4dr Saloon

"Automatic, 22,000 miles, This vehicle was purchased by the Royal family of Brunei in 1988, it was taken directley to hoopers, where it was fitted with a Hooper rear window and electric sunroof. The interior was also refit to a rich wine colour, a specification required from the royal household. The Bentley was imported to the UK along with ten other vehicles from the royal household, in 1999. It was then sold through a R.R dealership in Cheshire. I purchased the car in 2002, the milage then was 15000. In 2002 the car was fitted with a new sony music system, also fitted with 17" alloys, there is a full service history, and everything on this vehicle is in good working order. I have the relevent documentation to substantiate these details. If your wanting a new Bentley, then this this is the nearest you would get for £17,500. A Beautiful Accusition. £17,500"

It is a bit over priced for a 1988 model but it certainly is a stand out.

The Hooper discrete window is a big bonus. A bit of coach building is always appropriate for a Royal car.

It has the updated light alloys from the Turbo RT 1997, so it looks like an um, 1997 model.

The twin headlights are the current fashion.

Now the interior. It is fantastic. The two tone colour combination is so well placed.

Well, after Sultan Hassanal and is brother Prince Jefri were out buying thousands of cars over a few year period, you would have thought they would know what looks good together.

That extra four inches in this long wheel base version does make a big difference for back seat drivers.

Random Royal fact, Prince Jefri has four wives, 17 children and 18 adopted children, and got into trouble for spending billions, yes billions of money on well, stuff like this Bentley.

If you want to see serious coach built Bentleys that the Royal family of Brunei commissioned read about them in a previous Bentley Spotting post here.
