Mark VI Sport Saloon
Coachwork: Pininfarina
This is a 1949 Bentley Mark VI Drophead Coupe with coachwork by Pinin Farina. It is believed that Pinin Farina and Facel-Metallon created 17 of these cars. Nine are believed to have been prototypes.

Frenchman Jean Daninos owned Facel-Metallon, which, among their talents, was a company that produced special bodies for major car companies. The chief designer and stylish was Jean Daninos. Their list of clients included marque's such as Simca and Ford.

Daninos commissioned Pinin Farina to create a fastback, two-door, saloon atop a Bentley Mark VI chassis The prototype carried chassis number #B323CD. Once the prototype was completed, it was put into series production by the Facel-Metallon company.
