Bentley 1948-2004 - 2018 Market Review
Bentley Turbo R

There just seems to be no stopping MarkVI Bentleys from popping up in a markets where quality 1940s UK cars aren’t common.

Prices around $40,000 for decent MarkVI or R Series are reasonable, as is the $55-65,000 being sought for later S2 V8s.

The Turbo R comes [or should] with warning stickers because these complex cars need even more intensive maintenance than the similarly-priced Mulsanne or Eight.

Jumping to more modern designs and with $100K in your budget, the choice is between the elegant but conservative Arnage or a Continental GT that looks like it should be lapping Le Mans.

Bentleys in this price bracket were often sold new outside Australia so thorough checking is essential.

MarkVI/R Type $37,700 [7]

S1-S3 Saloon $61,250 [9]

EIGHT/Mulsanne 1981-89 $29,630 [9]

Turbo R 1984-90 $36,835 [5]

Arnage 2001-03 $91,140 [6]

Continental R/GT 1998-03 $95,270 [19]
