After the war, Rolls-Royce launched the Bentley Mark VI model with the intention to export it in order to compensate for the terrible economic situation in Europe. A standard steel body was created and the model was powered by a new six-cylinder F-head engine with overhead intake and side-mounted exhaust valves. About 20% of the chassis were consigned to coachbuilders and many different versions of the four-door saloon were made. The Bentley Mark VI Franay Paris drophead coupe was introduced at the 1947 Paris show and won Best of Show at its first two concours in 1948. The model was updated and improved in 1948 at the request of its owner, with no budget limit. The larger 4.5-liter Bentley engine with dual exhaust replaced the original 4.2-liter. The Bentley Mark VI Franay Paris drophead coupe won over 50 major awards and honors and is one of the most desirable collector cars.
