The Bentley R Type Continental was available from 1952 to 1955 and was essentially the high-performance version of the standard R Type model. When introduced, the Continental was the fastest four-seat tourer on the market, with a top speed of 120 mph. The 4.5-liter, 6-cylinder engine was coupled to a four-speed gearbox with floor or column shift and an automatic transmission on option from 1953. 207 units of the Bentley R Type Continental were made during its production run. Most models featured the distinctive fastback design, by H.J Mulliner or Park Ward except for 16 rare units. The Bentley S Type Continental came to replace the R Type in 1955.
