1948 Bentley Mk.VI Special Roadster

Introduced in 1946, the Mk. VI was Bentley's first post-war model. Aimed at the emerging 'owner-driver' luxury car market, the newcomer was closely based on the 1939 Mk. V (of which only fifteen were produced). Built around a massive cruciform-braced chassis with independent front suspension and a leaf-sprung 'live' rear axle, it was capable of over 100mph when clad in the factory's understated 'standard steel saloon' coachwork. The Mk. VI quickly developed a reputation for being a refined yet responsive driving car. It is our opinion that this is probably one of finest post-war Bentley specials that has ever been built, The Chelsea Workshop took twelve years to complete this car at cost in excess of £250,000. The chassis, suspension, steering etc. are from a 1948 Bentley Mk. VI. All of which have been fully overhauled and restored, 24 inches has been removed from the centre of the chassis and inserted towards the front thus keeping the ten foot wheel base. The old 4¼ litre engine and manual gearbox were removed and a fully rebuilt and restored 4.9 litre engine and automatic gearbox, which came from a late 1950's Bentley S1, fitted in a lowered position in the restored chassis. Clothed with a beautiful two seater speedster body, constructed with an ash framed and then skinned in aluminium is now painted in a lustrous maroon with a tan leather interior. Only the best and most traditional materials have been used. The windscreen frame was made from brass and then chrome plated. Front and rear wings have been made from steel and was done for strength to reduce the amount of support required. The dashboard, veneered in walnut, complements the white faced instruments and switch box. Even the black mohair hood, with its metal frame, has been engineered to be in keeping with the 1930's styling of this car. Built by The Chelsea Workshop to showcase their workmanship has resulted in having cars sent to them for restoration from all parts of the world. This is a unique opportunity to acquire a very special car that can be driven and used for rallying or as a worthy competitor in any of the many Concours D'elegance events around the world.
