Featured Asset – 1955 Bentley Continental

1955 Bentley Continental

The R Type Continental coupe was reminiscent of the fast 1930s Bentley tourers, which were lower and sleeker than the sedans, with a curved windshield, streamlined form, long swooping tail and rear fender skirts. At its introduction, it was the fastest four-seater in the world with a top speed of 120 mph. The 1955 model was the first to include a 4.9 litre engine and a four-speed gearbox that could be floor- or column-shift.
