Buying or Selling a 1954 Bentley R Type?
The Bentley R Type was introduced in 1952 to succeed to the Bentley Mark VI and was a more spacious and more advanced model. In order to create a trunk almost twice as big as on the Mk VI, the overall length of the car was extended by eight inches. In the front, the chassis used independent suspension with coil springs and semi-elliptical leaf springs in the rear. The brakes were drums all around, operating hydraulically in the front and mechanically in the rear through a gearbox driven servo. An F-head, 6-cylinder, 4.5-liter engine powered the R Type—and the last models of Mk VI—and was coupled to a four-speed manual transmission with an automatic option. 0-to-60 mph timed at approximately 13 seconds and top speeds were recorded above 100 mph. The interior of the R Type featured leather upholstery, a sunroof, fitted tools, a radio and a heater.
