Description

1953 Bentley R type Fastback Coupe
Chassis number: B44ZY
Registration Number: PXL965
A physical car ready for immediate delivery.
Just completed with 30 miles covered. This car is absolutely as brand new & in simply perfect condition. The car is finished in the darkest shade of metallic blue: Bentley Black Sapphire which appears almost black in some lights. To the interior has cream/mushroom Muirhead Savannah leather to the seats & door cars along with traditional burr walnut to the dash board & door tops. This car is a 4 speed automatic example with a long continental rear axle giving very long legged performance.
A set of bespoke luggage is currently being made for the car. The headling is a mid blue alcantara.
Constructed & coachbuilt as a bespoke body & options on an original Bentley R type chassis used as a donor car; This modern interpretation is in effect a brand new Bentley Fastback being delivered 65 years late. Every nut bolt bearing & component has been remanufactured to as new.
Traditional coachbuilding techniques are employed producing the aluminium body, all panels are produced on an English wheel and checked on a traditional buck. Whilst the body is being completed the chassis is disassembled & rebuilt to brand new. The engine is rebuilt to as new & a free flow exhaust fitted considerably uprating the perfomance. The rear axle is also upgraded to continental specification allowing for very relaxed cruising at modern motorway speeds.
