Bentley MkVI
Bentley entered the luxury car market in 1946 with the MkVI. This was a development of the MkV which had been launched on the eve of the war and few produced. Mechanically the MkVI was all Rolls-Royce with a 6-cylinder 4257cc (4┬╝litre) engine and it shared much with the Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith. Although many Bentley MkVI carried coachbuilt bodies, the most common body was the standard steel saloon. In 1951 the engine was upgraded to 4566cc, and in 1952 the very similar R-type replaced the MkVI.
