Bentley 1948-2006

Tradition runs deep and Bentley values aren’t prone to rapid movement in any direction. That is not to say that desirable models don’t generate exceptional money, as evident from the A$1.6 million asked recently by a UK vendor for an R Type Continental.

Standard Steel Mark 6 and R Type saloons hover around $50,000 as do S1-S2 four doors. The S3 makes 30 per cent more but is scarce.

Outlaying $25-40,000 will put various Bentleys on your list including decent examples of the very muscular Turbo R.

Continental R coupes from 12-15 years ago were around $400K when new and now sell in the $65-90,000 range. Ask about servicing costs first.

Mark VI/R Type $46,575 [11] 

S1-S2 Saloon $51,230 [10]

T/T2 Saloon $31,370 [6] 

Eight/Mulsanne 1981-89 $30,860 [11]

Turbo R 1984-90 $45,920 [6] 

Arnage 2001-03 $100,580 [9]

Continental GT 2004-06 $83,215 [16]
