Sedanca Coupe
Coachwork: Gurney Nutting
In 1936, Madame Yvonne Cahen d'Anvers de Rothschild wanted a fast, luxurious, compact car that had all the style of her banker husband's pair of French-bodied Hispano-Suizas. H.R. Owen, London supplier of motorcars to the nobility and gentry, commissioned Gurney Nutting to build her a one-off sedanca coupe on a Derby Bentley chassis. Designer John Blatchley drew a sweeping design in black and white, with complex swaging across bonnet and scuttle and it was approved by Mme de Rothschild. Seven months later the car was unfinished, and the impatient lady cancelled her order. When finally completed in 1937 the car was sold to a jam millionaire. Only one similar body was ever built.
