Description

R1 DTX is one of the more scarce, and very desirable Bentley Brooklands R models. Announced for the 1998 model year and according to various sources, this is one just 28 RHD examples built, and one of the very last of the SZ-generation models. The Brooklands R incorporated the suspension system from the Turbo R for stiffer, more precise handling enabling owners to make the most of the cars light pressure Turbo that provided 300bhp. The Brooklands also has the same styling as the Turbo RT with various colour coding, RT steering wheel and mesh radiator grille with mesh air ducts.

Supplied new in Brewster Green with Parchment hide interior, our Bentley Brooklands R has covered 89000 miles from new and comes with an extensive service history. The car was supplied new on 29th August 1997 by Jack Barclay Ltd and the first seven services were carried out by H.R Owen Service Centre taking the mileage to 38984 miles before two services by supplying dealership Jack Barclay at 42357 and 45960 miles. Rolls Royce and Bentley specialists took over maintenance in later life with stamps at 79520, 79846, 80503, 80915, 81600 and 88570 miles. A huge file of invoices are with the car from 2015 to 2023 totalling a staggering £28,000 of expenditure, £18000 of this was between 2015 and 2016 when its ‘new owner' went right through the car with a South West based Rolls Royce and Bentley specialists rebuilding the front suspension, replacing the steering rack, rebuilding the braking system and carrying out some electrical work.




Since the major expenditure the Bentley has been gently used and very well maintained. It arrives with us in strong mechanical condition, driving beautifully in true Bentley style. The car offers performance, luxury and comfort, and presents very well with impressive Brewster Green paintwork, clean, straight body panels and a lovely Parchment leather upholstery. This is a very usable Bentley, it's very smooth and enjoyable to drive and works for both local short driving as its last owner found, but also makes a fabulous car for longer distance touring. This is a very well sorted, high quality example that is also fast coming somewhat of a collectors piece and with private plate included, this rare Brooklands R offers great value.
