The Bentley Mark VI was first introduced in May 1946 and produced until 1952. The Mk VI was the first model to be produced using a factory-built coachwork, made at Pressed Steel’s factory. The Standard Steel Saloon body featured a design typical of the late 1940s – early 1950s, which was influenced by other coachbuilders of the era. The chassis boasted independent suspension with coil springs in the front and semi-elliptic springs in the rear. A four-speed gearbox was linked to the 4.3-liter engine with twin SU carburetors and six cylinders in line. Brakes were servo assisted. Overall, the performance of the Bentley Mark VI was impressive and the car was well received by the public.
