2011 Bentley Mulsanne – Click above for high-res image gallery

According to Auto Express, Bentley may be working on a new version of its legendary Turbo R coupe. Word is 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.

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

At this point, the Turbo R is still purely theoretical; 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.

      Oooh that would be real nice.

      Red label or green? :)

      Pissant big boat needs 750hp. Fer cryin' out loud...it's almost a 7liter boat anchor for an engine!!

      And it's not like 750hp is difficult to achieve. I suspect it's a transmission and brake issue to go that high.

      Turbo R's were sedans.

      If It's to be a coupe why not Continental R?

      The ultimate bad ass sedan, case closed!

      Requirements:

      carbon fibre body
      aluminum frame
      keep luxuriously appointed interior

      and you're halfway there.

      Real Bentleys are monster machines like this new Mulsanne. A Turbo R version of the new Mulsanne would be freaking perfect. The smaller V-Dub Bentley Continentals and Flying Spurs are too generic and haven't the presence of a true Bentley.

      Seeing one of these in person really leaves a great impression...they have a real tank like feel to them, with those squared shoulders.

      This and the recent Brooklands are a couple of my favorite Bentleys...watch them depreciate like most exotics anyway =)
