Here we’ve got a car that is really a story all by itself…because what do you suppose the total costs have been on a Bentley Turbo R for the past 126,000 miles? Let’s start with depreciation, with a base price of $203,500 plus $12,000 in options in 1997, this thing lost $200,000 in value over the years (or $1.68/mile)…plus the 12,600 gallons of premium this thing consumed at a conservative 10mpg for $37,800 at $3/gal average fuel cost. Add in the cost of consumables like $275 headlights and you’ve got at LEAST $5000/year for the past 21 years for $105,000. Plus $1200 per year for license/insurance/registration for $25,200…so total WAG for cost to run is $368,000 or $2.92 dollars per mile..which is about $1/mile MORE than taking uber.
