  • 84364 1

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' London event, 24 October 2019. Estimate:£65,000 - £75,000 One of just 104 Continental Ts built to RHD specificationsLess than 29,000 miles from new Bentley returned to its glory days with the Continental, which revived the marque after generations of association with Rolls-Royce. Hearkening back to the era of the Bentley Boys was the uncompromising Continental T. The development team took the standard car, which had been styled by John Heffernan and Ken Greenleywhose pedigree included the Aston Martin Virageand shortened it by four inches to improve handling.The T was a brutal hand-built statement of intent, boasting a £250,000 price tag that made it the most expensive car in the world. Road & Track magazine described it as totally over the top. Among the buyers were Formula 1 world champion Nigel Mansell and an Arab crown prince. Another commissioned his own book about the car.Built between 1996 and 2002, the T featured flared wheel arches hosting 18-inch alloy wheels, twin turbos and intercooler, an uprated Zytek engine management system, and stiffened suspension. While early production cars boasted engines producing 400 bhp, Continental Ts built from 19982003 were graced with 20 additional horsepower, raising top speed to 168 mph. In total, just 322 examples were built, with only 104 of these built to RHD specifications. This example left Crewe in dark green with acres of beige leather piped black and a dual-tone dash. It has been used sparingly, with the odometer displaying just 28,807 miles, and has been with the vendor since 2012. The deep paintwork is blemish-free and the interior as new. Fastidiously maintained, it boasts a documented service history contained in the original service booklet, with recent services by Frank Dale & Stepsons. The Continental T was among the last and rarest analogue Bentleys and remains desirable today.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/lf19.
