Extremely rare car in left-hand-drive with only 30 cars produced.
The Bentley has been delivered new to the Greek shipping Magnate George Embiricos ( 1920-2011 ) for his residence of Lausanne ( Switzerland ) in march 1964 .
Mister Embiricos was a big Art collector who owned several Masterpieces by El Greco , Goya , Cézanne , Picasso , Van Gogh and Bacon in his home in Lausanne .
Surely a man of taste !
He sold the Paul Cézanne painting « The card Players » for somewhere beteween 260 and 320 million dollars reportedly to Royal family of Qatar in 2011.
It was the most expensive painting sold up to that time.
After his death in 2011 , the magnificent Bentley was sold to a collector of Switzerland who use it very little and sparingly.
The car has a low mileage and is in exceptional original condition ; the superb color combination chosen by its glorious owner has fortunately never been changed !
This prestigious Coupe Bentley has been kept always in Switzerland from 1964 to 2016 , year in which it was imported into Belgium .


Véhicule extrêmement rare en conduite à gauche et construit à 30 exemplaires seulement .
Elle fût livrée neuve au richissime armateur Grec George Embiricos  ( 1920-2011 ), pour sa demeure de Lausanne ( Suisse ) en mars 1964 .
Grand collectionneur d’art , George Embiricos possédait des œuvres exceptionnelles de El Greco , Goya , Cézanne , Picasso , Van Gogh et Bacon dans sa maison de Lausanne.
Assurément un homme de goût !
Il vendit en 2011 la peinture de Paul Cezanne « les joueurs de cartes » à la famille Royale du Qatar pour un montant estimé entre 260 et 320 millions de dollars ce qui en faisait à cette époque la peinture la plus chère de tous les temps…
Après son décès en 2011 , sa superbe Bentley fut acquise par un collectionneur Suisse qui l’utilisa rarement et avec parcimonie.
La voiture a peu roulé et est dans un état exceptionnel d’origine ; la superbe combinaison de couleur choisie par son glorieux propriétaire n’a heureusement jamais été modifiée !
Cette prestigieuse Bentley coupé n’a jamais quitté la Suisse de 1964 à 2016 , année où elle fut importée en Belgique.
