1955 Bentley R Type

The Bentley R Type was introduced in 1952 and only produced until 1955. It was the second Bentley model made after the war and was heavily based on its predecessor, the Bentley Mk VI. The R Type also came with a standard steel body while a few models were consigned with independent coachbuilders who made unique examples. Different carburation and radiator grilles were the main differences between the Mark VI and the R Type, along with the trunk that was almost twice as large to make the model more convenient. The interior was comfortable and luxurious, equipped with a radio, leather upholstery, a sunroof and fitted tools. The F-head, 6-cylinder engine had a capacity of 4.5 liters and gave the car satisfying power. The engine was coupled to a four-speed automatic gearbox and the 1955 Bentley R Type could reach top speeds above 100 mph and accelerate to 60 mph from still in about 13 seconds.
