BENTLEY CONTINENTAL R

2-door saloon.

Superb RR-styled aerotested fastback, built in alloy by H.J. Mulliner; the ultimate in post-war Bentleys. Three figure cruising with minimal wind noise, plus 20mpg. 4.9-litre engine on late cars, manual fancied more than automatic, but LHD means column shift or centre change. Pay an arm and a leg for a good one.
