1951 Bentley Mark VI

Share on:

At the end of 1946, the Mark VI Bentley appeared, bearing a new engine of 4.25-liters featuring overhead inlet and side exhaust valves. At the instigation of M. Jean Daninos of the Forges et Ateliers de Construction d'Eure et de Loire - or FACEL for short - the Italian coachbuilder Pininfarina produced the first Cresta Bentley on the Mark VI chassis, which was shown at the Paris Salon in 1947. A limited run of 16 cars were then built by the Facel-Metalon company in Paris. Facel-Metalon later produced this special coupe for M. Daninos' wife, and it became known as the 'Baby Cresta.' In 1954, the Facel Company launched its own car, the FVS and the similarity between this coupe and that first Facel Vega is very clear.
