I love this car, easy SZ from me. I know RRs and Bentleys aren't really made for car enthusiasts, but I love them nonetheless, and the Turbo R is one of my favorites out of all of them.

SZ. Other than at the NY Auto Show, had finally got to see one up close, parked on Gold Street in lower Manhattan, back in '93. Bentley green with beige interior and green piping. The thing was choice at the time.

Its design is purely classic. It doesn't look in any way anything imposing or scary, but it's such a classy and luxurious automobile. So my call is Cool. Anything "Meh" or worse is disrespect to it for me. Conversely, it isn't purely powerful to where I go "Sub-Zero."

The car that gave Bentley its mojo back. Cool but not SZ as the styling is rather Meh (the Continental R/T would be an easy SZ) but being the world's fastest drawing room at the time can't be ignored.
