According to Auto Express, Bentley is toying with the idea of working on a new version of its legendary Turbo R coupe. Rumor has it that the new Turbo R would be a luxury super coupe based on the Mulsanne, packing close to 600 horsepower from a tuned version of the sedan's twin-turbo 6.75-liter V8. Basically, it'll be a boxy Bentley, like the Mulsanne below.


If Bentley goes forth and builds the car, we could see it as early as 2013, possibly designed very close to what you'd imagine a two-door Mulsanne would look like. Bentley is still hush hush on whether the car will be built, but if it is, it could serve as a fitting replacement for the Brooklands.

At this point, the idea of the Turbo R is just that, an idea with no confirmation about its existence, it's hard to say for sure when it will debut or what it will actually look like. Look for more updates as they arrive.


Either way, I'm not going to wet my pants over it. I'm not a fan of those boxy, luxury cars- think Rolls Royce Phantom, Bentley Brooklands, Bentley Azure, etc. I like my cars built like I am... with curves.

Some people love the performance aspect of cars, I love the design aspect of cars. To each it's own. But if I was presented with a Bentley Mulsanne, I would take it... and trade it for the Bentley Continental Supersports. Keep in mind that I was extremely close to owning my own Bentley Continental GT without Grand Theft Auto having to do with it.
