DESCRIPTION
Announced in May 1946, the Bentley Mark VI featured a strong channel section chassis with independent wishbone/coil spring front suspension and a live, leaf-sprung rear axle. Drum brakes were fitted all-round, with Rolls-Royce's mechanical servo assistance, the front ones for the first time on a Bentley operated hydraulically. Power was provided by the pre-war B60 4,257cc six cylinder engine – with overhead inlet/side exhaust valves and belt rather than gear-driven dynamo and water pump, both major changes from previous Rolls-Royce practice – sufficient to propel the Bentley, via twin SU carburettors, to 90mph. The only major mechanical change came in May 1951 when engine capacity was increased to 4,566cc together with a change from a by-pass oil filter system to one-using a full-flow layout. The Mark VI was joined by the R-Type with production commencing in 1952. The factory saloon coachwork was indistinguishable from that of the Bentley Mark VI up to the rear doors, but with the back featuring a one-piece boot lid and a more spacious luggage compartment. In total, 5,201 Bentley Mark VIs were produced, 4,000 with the 4.1 litre engine, and 2,320 R-Types. Production ceased in 1955. Again, in great condition, this beautiful R-Type comes in an extremely desirable colour combination and is one not to be missed. We are advised that it drives, operating as it should and effortlessly rolls down the road. A well sorted Bentley and very attractively estimated.
