About the Bentley Continental R Mulliner
The Bentley Continental R Mulliner range was offered in March 1999, and was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show. One of the reasons why it was made was to cater to customers who wanted the power of the Continental T, mixed with the longer wheelbase of the Continental R.
Not surprisingly, the Bentley Continental R Mulliner shares the same engine with the Continental T. It's also four inches longer than the T, which measured around 102 mm that time. It had an estimated top speed of around 274 km/h, with a 0-97 km/h (60 mph) acceleration time of 5.6 seconds.
The Bentley Continental R Mulliner is part of the the Bentley Continental R family, a luxury coupe made by British automobile manufacturer Bentley Motors from 1991 to 2003. It was the first to feature the GM 4L80-E transmission, and the first not to share the same body with a Rolls-Royce model since the 1965 S3 Continental.
During its day, the Continental R was considered the most expensive, fastest, and most powerful Bentley of its kind.
