Description

Model year: 2020
Registration number: BE55WG

We have a very nice Bentley R-Type. It was supplied from new in May 1954 to the Charles Attwood & Sons Ltd dealer organisation. In May 2003 the car landed up with the last owner. A month later the engine was completely overhauled. From late 2003 to mid 2005 a substantive restoration was undertaken. Cost nor effort was spared during this restoration, that took place in Germany. Everything has been documented including invoices as well as hundreds of photos. Documentation from the previous owner dating back to 1988 is also present. This Bentley has been restored using the same production process to the exact 1954 specifications. It has the original Two-Tone ’Tudor Grey over Shell Grey’ finish. Completing the picture is the original, matching numbers’ engine. The beautiful bodywork has straight and excellently aligned body panels. The many chrome embellishments are as good s new. A Bentley R-Type of this top quality is a real rarity. We believe that this is, without doubt, one of the very best currently available!
