1953 Lightweight Coupé in Concours Condition For Sale

Das zweitürige Abbott Lightweight Coupé, basierend auf dem Bentley-R-Type-Chassis, repräsentiert eine besondere Episode der britischen Automobilgeschichte der 50er Jahre. Die Fahrzeuge mit der Design-Nr. 3843, gebaut zwischen Ende 1952 und Anfang 1955 in einer Auflage von 14 Exemplaren (und ein Prototyp), dokumentieren zudem den Höhepunkt in der Geschichte des 1929 gegründeten und aus der Flugzeugindustrie hervorgegangenen Unternehmens E. D. Abbott LDT. mit Sitz in Farnham, Grafschaft Surrey.

Bei Abbott of Farnham Coachbuilder & Engineers hatte man seinerzeit an einem Karosserie-Entwurf gearbeitet, mit dem Ziel, die Karosserie in grösserer Stückzahl auf das Chassis des neuen Bentley Continental zu setzen. Dies umso mehr, als man vorher in enger Abstimmung mit dem Werk einen Erfolg versprechenden Prototypen auf Basis des Bentley Mark VI mit dem Namen «Bentley Farnham» gebaut hatte. Zudem waren bereits eine Reihe Bentley Mark VI von Abbott mit sehr attraktiven Cabrio-Aufbauten versehen worden, die grossen Anklang fanden. Es war deshalb keineswegs abwegig, wenn Abbott darauf vertraute, dass in naher Zukunft auch ein Kontingent von Bentley-Continental-Chassis verfügbar würde, um als «Abbott Continental» in die Geschichte einzugehen.

Dieses Exemplar stammt aus 2. Schweizer Sammlerhand und wurde mit unbeschreiblichem Umfang perfekt in der Schweiz restauriert. Den makellosen Klassiker kann man sowohl auf lange Reisen mitnehmen und geniessen, wie auch an sämtlichen Concours d'Elégance teilnehmen. Für Besichtigungen und detaillierte Informationen bitten mir um vorherige Terminabsprache. Das Fahrzeug wird in der "Gala d'Elégance" von Goodtimer präsentiert.
