While in development, the Bentley R Type was referred to as the Mark VII, as it succeeded to the Mark VI model. The new model was introduced in 1952 and produced until 1955, in 2,323 units. The Bentley R Type was fitted with a standardized body—although a few models were consigned to individual coachbuilders—and the whole car was assembled at the Crewe factory in England. The Mark VI and the R Type were similar in design for the front of the car, but the trunk was twice as big. The engine was an F-head, 6-cylinder, 4.5-liter unit, coupled to a four-speed manual transmission standard, with an automatic option. The chassis featured independent suspension in the front and semi-elliptical leaf springs in the rear.
