![CDATA[Since 1921, the Bentley name has remained synonymous with prestige, performance and luxury. The 'Continental' designation recalls the Bentley Continental of the post-war period. The 'R' resonates to the R-Type Bentleys from the 1950s as well as the Turbo R of the 1980s. Bentley's 1980s resurgence relied exclusively on models whose basic architecture was shared with other Rolls-Royce models however; the Bentley Continental R was unique to the Bentley marque. Despite the need to incorporate non-traditional features such as doors recessed into the roof, the result looked every bit a Bentley, albeit one restated for the 1990s. Needless to say, the performance was outstanding, the combination of the Turbo R engine in the new wind-cheating shape cutting the 0-60mph time to under six seconds and boosting a top speed in excess of 150mph. This regal Bentley example is offered in Mica Red with Sandstone leather and the cockpit of this Continental R is an area of beauty with walnut wood and gaugesfeaturing highly. Boasting just four owners from new, the first two were brothers and the car was reportedly driven mostly by a family chauffer. Our vendor, the fourth keeper, has owned this exquisite example since 2006 and describes the car as part of the family. Originally registered on 23rd March 1994, this Continental R has been cared for by Bentley and Rolls-Royce specialists, the comprehensively stamped service booklet shows a very good level of maintenance performed by all previous keepers, this is combined with every MoT test certificate which can be accounted for. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 28th September 2020 together with a comprehensive service history, this Bentley is a magnificent vehicle to drive and offers outstanding value for such a low mileage example in wonderful condition.]]

The decision was taken in 1950 to develop a Bentley motor car capable of producing high maximum speeds ideal for Continental touring on the long straight roads of Europe. The higher speeds were to be coupled with correspondingly high rates of acceleration and excellent handling. In order to achieve these lofty ambitions a tremendous amount of research and testing were conducted using quarter scale models in the Hucknall wind tunnel. Extensive testing and alterations allowed Ivan Evernden and John Blatchley of the Motor Car Division to design a body not only of exceptional style, but also of an aerodynamic shape that reduced drag and achieved excellent levels of stability even at speeds in excess of 100mph. By late summer of 1951 the drawings and scale models became reality with the creation of the prototype R Type Continental which in time became known as OLGA. Every weight saving opportunity was taken in the production of OLGA, with the majority of the car being crafted from lightweight aluminium.This included the body, window frames, bumpers and even the seat frames. In September of 1951 testing began in France under the supervision of Walter Sleator who was the managing director of Garage Franco-Britannique, the Rolls-Royce agent in Paris. Sleator was well qualified for such a task being an ex-racing driver. Following extensive testing and refinements production began in early 1952. The R Type Continental was at the time the fastest production four seater car in the world, capable of speeds of well in excess of 100mph. The Continental chassis shared many similarities with the Mk VI and R Type chassis, sharing suspension, steering and brake components. However the combination of the fitment of a high ratio back axle, the lightweight construction and the smaller sleeker body style resulted in performance that was far and beyond superior to any car Bentley had previously produced in the post war era. The chassis were assembled in Crewe with the vast majority of the 208 built then transportedto London by train where they were fitted with coachwork by H.J. Mulliner of Chiswick, with all but fifteen cars fitted with their fastback bodies. The A, B and C series cars were fitted with 4.5 litre engines that displaced 4,566cc and produced 158bhp. Chassis No BC3C which we are currently offering for sale was originally completed in August of 1953, finished in black with a beige leather interior. It was also ordered with six fitted suitcases, a removable centre arm rest in the front of the cabin and a compass on the nearside of the dashboard. It was supplied by H.A.Fox & Co to its first owner, Mr H.C.Coriat of England in September of 1953. Mr Coriat retained the car for a little over a year and sold it in December of 1954 to Mr Guy Moreton. It was then owned by Mr R.H.Baker from 1960 until 1975 when it was purchased by Mr Leon Shapiro of the United States. It was acquired by Mr John Harwood in January of 1976 who kept the car in New York until around 1985 when he relocated to London, bringingBC3C with him. Once back in London, Mr Harwood decided to restore BC3C to its former glory. The body was removed and the works commenced, but for reasons unknown the car was not completed and it subsequently was put into storage where it remained for many years. In around 2010 the car was sold in a partially finished state at auction following Mr Harwoods passing. At this point the restoration recommenced with coachwork, mechanical, trim, chrome and woodwork restoration. In more recent times the engine was overhauled and prior to being offered for sale Frank Dale & Stepsons have prepared the car to showroom condition. It comes mechanically prepared and tested and is complete with copy chassis cards and historical documentation. This handsome R Type Continental is perhaps the most sought after specification in its original colour scheme, with rear wheel spats, air conditioning mounted on the parcel shelf, manual transmission and bucket seats and should be seriously considered by anyone looking toacquire a superb example of this iconic Bentley Continental.

Chassis No BC11A which we are currently offering for sale is one of the very first R Type Continentals produced. It was originally completed in late 1952 and then delivered in February of 1953 to its first owner Mrs Loel Guinness. It was supplied through Franco Britannic Automobiles, the French Rolls-Royce agent, finished in Tudor grey with a maroon leather interior (VM 3186) Mrs Guinness was the third wife of British MP Thomas Loel Guinness who was a member of the famous brewing dynasty. In January 1955 the car was sold through Franco Britannic once again, to Lemaigre Dubreuil and then again in 1964 when it was sold to Mr M Rambuteau. Chassis No BC11A returned to the UK for the first time in 1967 when supplied by Jack Barclay Ltd to Mr Guy May. Thecar had three further owners between 1969 and 1977, on each occasion Jack Barclay Ltd were the selling agent. In November 1978 the car was purchased by the present owner who has retained it ever since. In late 2003 the car was improved with a bare metal re-paint, woodwork restoration, chrome re-plating and a sympathetic restoration to the interior with new carpets, headlining and a few improvements to the original leather. The car was recently prepared by ourselves for sale and is in beautiful condition, the coachwork is of a very high standard, mechanically the car is in excellent condition and the interior is charmingly patinated. The specification of manual gears, bucket seats and rear wheel spats is also one of the most attractive and desirable configurations available on the R Type Continental in our opinion. It comes complete with its original handbook, original service manual, copy chassis cards, photographs from the restoration works, tools and history file. Chassis No BC11A is a beautifulearly production, lightweight example of this iconic model which comes fully prepared for its next fortunate owners enjoyment.
