For nearly £850,000, a rare post-war Bentley in “impeccable condition” is available.
CLASSIC CAR ENTHUSIASTS might get their hands on an ultra-rare 1950s Bentley for more than £850,000, making it a superb addition to collectors’ collections.
Despite being nearly 65 years old, the historic Bentley R Type Continental Fastback is stated to be in “impeccable condition.” The vehicle is stated to be in “first-rate condition” and “drives as well as it looks.”
The seller, Vintage and Prestige Fine Motorcars, claims the automobile has traveled just over 101,000 kilometers in its lifetime.
Prospective purchasers can see the model up close by appointment only at the Northampton location.
The car had been completely maintained by its “current long-term owner,” according to the sellers.
The Bentley was claimed to be in “excellent order throughout,” indicating that it had been well cared for all these years.
The model comes with a “huge history file” in addition to the car.
This includes information about the car’s excellent condition, such as service records and ownership information.
”This automobile is in immaculate condition, having been maintained by the present long-term owner without regard for expense.
“The car comes with a big history dossier, which we will photograph once it arrives with us in a few weeks.
“Throughout, the car is in excellent condition, with superb Maroon paintwork on the exterior and unmarked brown leather on the interior.
“This car drives as wonderfully as it looks and is in immaculate condition throughout.
“We also have an unrestored example in green and a brand new freshly restored example in black in mint condition in addition to this car.”
A coachbuilt version from H.J Mulliner is available for purchase.
Back in the day, the company was a well-known builder of R Type models, with other well-known names like Radford, Freestone, and Webb.
Because of its superb condition, the model is more expensive than similar models.
Other R Type cars, according to Classic Trader, are available for less than £800,000.
Bentley’s postwar car collection included the R Type as the second series.
Before the debut of Bentley’s S Series in 1955, the car was frequently seen as a stopgap.
Bentley R Type cars are said to have a top speed of roughly 101.7mph and a 0-60mph time of little over 13 seconds.
Fuel usage is around 15.5 miles per imperial pound. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
