BENTLEY R-TYPE

4-door saloon, various customs.

Bigger boot and 4.6-litre engine, plus a four-speed automatic option standardised on late cars. Specials rarer than on Mk VI, which is why you must pay handsomely for a good drophead. Straight Standard Steels come cheaper, though Mk VI corrosion problems apply.
