1953 Bentley R-TYPE

Description:

1953 Bentley R-Type Continental Fastback with Ties to "James Bond" Creator Ian Fleming: One of 41 Left-Hand Drive Examples ProducedThis 1953 Bentley R-Type Continental l Fastback LHD by H.J. Mulliner is an undisputed icon of British motoring and one of the all-time great Bentley models. Built in extremely limited numbers, these high-performance grand touring cars attracted an elite clientele that included royalty, celebrities, and captains of industry. This car, BC10LB, is certainly no exception, as Ian Fleming, creator of the James Bond series, ordered this Bentley for his friend and collaborator Ivar Bryce. Bryce, a fascinating figure in his own right, worked for the British Security Coordination during World War II and was the inspiration for Flemings character Felix Leiter. Originally finished in Deep Grey and specified as a left-hand drive, manual gearbox car with fender spats and lightweight seats, Bryces R-Type Continental was equipped with bespoke features such as fitted luggage and a racehorse mascot. Mechanically sound, the car currently runs and drives well. A black-plate California car with exceptional provenance. Retaining its original interior and matching numbers engine. One of only 41 left-hand drive examples produced and a 1971 Pebble Beach Class Winner. This significant Bentley discovery represents an extremely exciting once in a lifetime opportunity that should not be missed. Coachwork by H.J.
