This time in Belgium.

It is thought that around 12 Bentley Turbo R 2 doors were made by Hooper in the late 80s and early 90s.

I do like the bonnet pressings. The look cool, and provide just that little bit of functionality by providing a little bit of air to the engine to be justifiable.

This one has all the features you can ask for. The small Hooper rear window for example.

Take a look at the wood - and length of that door! It is impressive.

Also notice that the ash trays are in the door sill wood.

The interior looks great. The bent wood centre console is quite impressive.

The switches inlaid directly into the wood with no metal surround is different.

The ad says it is an 1987 car, but from the engine, this is a carbi model from 1986.

It is certainly one impressive car! If it only was a right hand drive...
