Sports Coupe
Coachwork: Mulliner
The R-Type was an improvement on Bentley's popular MK VI standard saloon, and was produced from 1952 until 1955. It has an elongated trunk which allowed for more sweeping lines. This car was originally supplied to the 14th Duke of Hamilton, and remained in his possession until 1973.
