    A friend has purchased (from another friend) a 4/1996 production Turbo RL vin SCBZP14C2TCX58103.

    Wanting to know:
    • How many left hand drive cars were made and where the cars production number fits in to the run when they were produced.

    We have only been able to determine about 99 Turbo RL's were made for 95-96 but even that info was not something I could confirm. Car is black / cream, well maintained @ 40k miles.

    Thanks for any help.

    Either the Bentley Drivers' Club info@bdcl.org, or the Rolls Royce Enthusiasts' Club hello@rrec.org.uk should have the records and be able to tell you.

    Any chance of a picture? That was back in the days when Bentley still made some really nice looking automobiles! :)

    Ill look on my phone but I ran Bleachbit on it recently so if they are gone, they are really gone. I got to drive the car twice before my buyer friend bought it. My seller friend has a shop and has my F150 for brakes and gave me the Turbo RL as loaner to drive :)
    500 traffic and 400am work traffic and the car was fine. Gave my buyer friend a real, honest review since I had so much wheel time. The brakes feel weird but you do get used to them, more aircraft like than car. ( remote Hydraulic servo valve)
