1997 Bentley Continental R

Chassis number: SCBZB15C8 VCH53412

Registration Number: D7CGN

Finished in very dark blue metallic, we previouslyy sold this car 13 years ago to an Italian antiques dealer who recently passed away.  He kept it in Milan at his home there but always on UK plates & used it to drive back & forth from London a few times each year.  Thus the Majority of 112,000 miles are motorway miles between Milan & London.

We collected the car from the late owners house in Milan & drove it back to the UK.  It perfomed absolutley flawlessly exemplifying the moniker "Continental."  The late owner had the car serviced regularly in Milan & had MOT's done when back in the UK.  The car came to us from the late owners house with not a shred of paperwork however so we have had to apply for a new log book for the car.  If paper work turns up when the house is cleared out we will photograph it & add it to the gallery.

The car is currently having a fresh MOT certificate perfomed upon it & also a service done prior to sale.  I have to emphasize how well this car drives.  It was always well looked after & maintenance performed upon it as & when required & was always garaged when not in use.

The interior of the car is parchment hide piped in dark blue along with blue carpets which extend also the the boot.  The leather is in very fine order with light patiantion & has stood the test of time well.  The steering wheel has some wear on the leather portions commensurate with the mileage.  The Burr elm on the dashboard is quite light in colour & particularly striking making the cabin a pleasant opulent feeling place to be.
