Original Bentley Turbo R with Rolls Royce Phantom Snout Pegs the Question Why?

You can have a field day with all the Rolls Royce Phantom replicas we’ve shown you through the years, ranging from the typical Chrysler 300 conversions to China clones and head-scratching BMW 7-Series, Nissan Patrol, Ford Excursion and Hummer-based cars, but this one has us stumped, as it’s actually built on an original Bentley Turbo R.

Granted; the British luxury saloon with the 6.75-liter turbocharged V8 delivering an estimated 300-horses that was built from 1985 to 1997 isn’t exactly a super rare or notable piece of automotive history, but it is a Bentley, right?

Besides the Phantom face that brings to mind the Thunderbird FAB-1, the Turbo R was outfitted with a grounds kit that should give it  the aerodynamic properties of a brick and some, let’s just say, questionable wheels.

The asking price on eBay is $10,995 (€8,100).
