    Bentley Turbo R

Other things got in the way too, and I eventually moved to the UK, reigniting my desire to own a classic British luxury car. My favorite pastime quickly became browsing the Internet for classic car ads, casually looking for good value options such as a Jaguar XJ12 or a Daimler Double Six, as well as some various Bentley and Rolls-Royce models.

    But when the time came to return to Sweden—after 16 years in the UK—I decided that I must bring something back. Yet despite this original warm reception, these cars are, in my opinion, hugely underrated and undervalued today. There are quite a few around, but many have suffered from not being properly looked after. The Turbo R was in production from to the Mulsanne Turbo had been introduced in and was continually updated throughout its lifespan, and was available as in normal or long-wheelbase versions.

    After some consideration, I decided that I wanted a short-wheelbase fuel injected car with the updated dashboard and active suspension that was introduced in , but I still preferred the older non-airbag steering wheel, the steering-column-mounted gear selector, and no plastic covering the engine.

    This meant that the car I was looking for would have to be made between and , a brief period in a long overall production run. Moreover, the looks of these cars tend to be rather color sensitive: And finally, since I was returning to Sweden, it would undoubtedly be more convenient if an LHD car could be located, which further narrowed the search.

On the day I arrived in the UK to pick it up, I went straight to the dealer to collect the car. My plan to drive around in triumph for a few days in the UK seeing old friends before getting on the ferry and the drive to Sweden was crushed.

    However, the dealer kindly lent me an old Audi A6 Avant so I could somewhat less triumphantly get around during my stay in the UK. I picked it up and as I drove away, it just felt glorious. The burble of the turbocharged 6. Not even the most luxurious cars are made like this these days; hand built and crafted in an era when the quality and feel of the materials were more important than all sorts of tech gadgets, although one gadget it does feature is the dual horn; one for town, one for country.

    In fact, this generation of Bentley was the last to be properly hand built in the old-fashioned British way; the model that came after the Turbo R, the Arnage, used many BMW parts including, originally the engine, until VW brought the old 6. The next day, I drove it up to Harwich where I met up with a friend who would accompany me on the journey back to Sweden.

    After the overnight crossing to the Netherlands, we set out to drive through Germany and Denmark up to the south of Sweden, where I now keep the car.
