Bentley Turbo R 2 door by Hooper & Co for sale

Well David's Bentley Turbo R 2 door by Hooper & Co. is on the market. CX25931

And I can honestly say I have spent a lot more time looking at photos of this car than you have. Why?

Well, in 2007 David bought the car in America, and wanted to personalise it.

So I helped him out in a way I could. Playing on the computer. Photoshop precisely. When I was much better at Photoshop than I am now!

David wanted to change the colour of the car from black to Morrocan Blue, vains to a mesh grille, orange to clear blinkers and 17" chrome alloys.

Here is the car when he purchased it.



And after I had photoshopped it.



Now a side by side. Click image to enlarge.



Now to the rear, when he purchased it. The 2 door profile with small rear window is certainly impressive.



After my photoshop treatment to see if David liked how it could look. With the 17' chrome alloys David wanted to get.



Now side by side.



Well David did it. Got it painted, got a mesh grille and put on clear indicators. But he could not track down a set of 17" chrome wheels he wanted.

Here is a photo with the personalisation under way.



And the completed job.



Read more about the personalisation here.

Well here it is for sale.



What a great car!

I do like the interior with leather wrapped steering wheel.

A sunroof is definitely a Hooper addition.

From the engine you can tell it's a series 2 Turbo R, a late 20000 chassis from 1989.

Got to love a Hooper badge.

Nice shots and I know that car. I can see that it doesn't have the factory Transient Overboost kit fitted. Shame, and a surprise for such a special car.
