The Bentley Turbo RT was the last, rarest, most powerful and most expensive of the Turbo R line. The Bentley RT came with the 400 bhp twin-turbo 6.75 L V8 engine of the two-door Continental T installed. It differed from other Bentley Turbo R models with its sport wheels, radiator mesh grille, colour coded bumpers with bright mesh inserts. Performance was huge, with a top speed limited to 150 mph, the ultra-luxurious Turbo RT as fast as any of the sporting luxury saloons of the time. The Turbo RT was produced during 1997 and 1998 only, with 252 units produced.
In 1998, London dealer Jack Barclay agreed to have a small number of cars built to incorporate many special features. These are probably the rarest version of the RT, although not officially recognised as such. These were sold as the Bentley Turbo RT Olympian. They can be identified by the five-spoke alloy wheels, and the Olympian boot badge. It is estimated that only four examples of this version were ever built.
The vendor states that this ultra rare Bentley has had only 3 previous owners. It comes with Documented Service History and a  large repair History File. The vendor has owned the car for 5 years, having had the car completely checked over with Full Major Service and considerable work done, by Bentley Birmingham. Since then the car has been looked after by N. Sandell, Independent Bentley Specialists. The vendor advises that the car has been kept in excellent condition and is one of only 4 made.
