Available from 1952 to 1955, the Bentley R Type Continental was essentially the high-performance version of the standard R Type model. Then Continental was the fastest four-seat tourer on the market when introduced, with a top speed of 120 mph. The 4.5-liter, 6-cylinder engine was matched with a four-speed gearbox with floor or column shift and an automatic transmission on option from 1953. A total of 207 units of the Bentley R Type Continental were made during its production run. The distinctive fastback design, by H.J Mulliner was used for most models, as well as Park Ward designs, except for 16 rare units. In 1955, the Bentley S Type Continental came to replace the R Type.
