Peter Gunn’s 1952 Bentley R – TYPE

If you prefer your cars with patina rather than perfect paint, then make time to savour the originality of Peter Gunn's Freestone and Webb-bodied Bentley R-Type from 1952. The first of only nine examples of the 'Empress' ever produced, and exhibited at the 1952 Motor Show at Earls Court, it started life as a diplomatic car for the West German embassy, which it served for 25 years, before being bought by a Harley Street doctor who was later credited with inventing the artificial knee joint. It comes complete with original tools, handbook, a full service history, and a whiskey decanter in the door sleeve.
