Coupe
Coachwork: Mulliner
Registration #: LGH 995
This is one of three lightweight prototypes built by H.J. Mulliner on the Mark VI chassis. The Mark VI was the first postwar Bentley built by Rolls-Royce, and the first model available with either a standard factory-built body or in bare chassis form for bespoke coachwork to be added. Mulliner was chosen for the coachwork on this chassis as it had perfected a lightweight method of coachbuilding, much needed for this postwar engine and chassis combination. The coupe body was designed by Mulliner's chief designer Stanley Watts, who had tested the design in the Rolls-Royce wind tunnel. This prototype is recognizable as the predecessor of the R-Type Continental prototype named 'Olga,' with its large split windshield and sloping rear window, a radical departure from Bentley's previous models.
