In this mini-series, we explore some of the limited editions you forgot existed. This week it’s the Bentley Turbo RT Olympian.
Even Rolls-Royce and Bentley sometimes feel that they could make their cars a little more special, a little more exclusive. And in 1998, the Turbo R Olympian was just that car. Fitted with an upgraded Sony sound system, a telephone, a fire extinguisher and twin Mulliner Park Ward golfing umbrellas, the Olympian’s main tweaks were cosmetic.
It featured a Hooper style reduced rear window, special Twilight Blue paint, unique Dark Grainy Blue leather with St James Red piping, and walnut veneer without inlay.
An Olympian crest on the dash and commemorative badging completed the package. And with just four made, it didn’t get much more exclusive.
