This Bentley Brooklands R Mulliner came up for sale on eBay in December 2016 along with this Turbo RT Mulliner and a Turbo R plus a selection of Jaguars and Daimlers. Apparently the (now deceased) eccentric owner built up a small collection but most likely did not use them. The motor car has most likely been unused for several years. This vehicle sold on eBay for an impressive £13,760.
