In 1952, Bentley introduced the R Type Continental, which was a high-performance version of the first R Type. The Continental was powered by the same F-head, 6-cylinder engine than the R Type, with a 4.5-liter capacity. Linked to a four-speed manual transmissionor automatic on option and soon standardized, the Bentley R Type Continental was very efficient, with a lightweight and a top speed of 120 mph. The interior featured a heater, a radio, leather upholstery, and fitted tools. In total, 208 units of the Bentley R Type Continental were built, including the first prototype. Except for 16 examples, the R Type Continental had the distinctive fastback. H.J. Mulliner bodied most of the models and five examples were sent to Park Ward.
