Throughout the 1980?s, Bentley relied primarily on models whose basic design was shared with Rolls-Royce products, but to invoke the appropriate public response Bentley investigated the idea of a new, high-performance car. They developed a prototype which was to be displayed to the public which was code named ?Project 90? and this was first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 1985. However, when the real thing was unveiled six years later, the Bentley Continental R invoked a spontaneous applause from the crowd upon it?s revelation. The Continental R benefited from computer styling assistance and wind tunnel testing to devise a sleek, streamliner-ike shape. Among other non-traditional features that were added to the Continental R Coupe such as the doors being recessed into the roof, the result remained as much a Bentley, although much restated for the 1990s. The Continental R was given a new gearbox, a four-speed automatic that included an ?overdrive? top ratio, and a recreational performance. The John Heffernan Ken Greenley penned Continental R had an outstanding combination given by the 385bhp Turbo R engine that cut the 0-60mph time to 6.1 seconds and still gave a top speed of an impressive 151mph.
