In 1931, Rolls-Royce purchased Bentley out of receivership. Their client base dwindled because the cars were so well designed and constructed they rarely needed replacement.

This 1936 Bentley is powered by a naturally aspirated 4,257-cc six-cylinder, overhead valve engine, featuring two SU carburetors and produces 125 horsepower. The front-engine designed was mated to a four-speed manual gearbox that drove the rear wheels. Its sports coachwork is by Vanden Plas.

It could achieve 60 mph in around 14 seconds with the top speed just below 100 mph. Production ran from 1936 through 1939, during which over 1,240 examples were produced. Up until this time, this was the most vehicles of a single series Bentley had ever produced.
