Bentley R-Type Continental, Bentley Continental GT: The old king meets the new prince

Bentley R-Type Continental, Bentley Continental GT
We found a very cool comparison of a 1953 Bentley R-Type Continental versus a Bentley Continental GT. A must read!

The company has produced some of the most extraordinary, most powerful cars to ever grace the planet, and the two models here represent important milestones in Bentley’s genealogy. Despite the fact that they’re separated by 54 years, they have a lot in common.

The Continental moniker is apt, stating their raisons d’etre. They were both designed and built with the ability to cover enormous distances in supreme comfort, unrivalled civility and effortless pace. Both stand out like jewels, but honors for the most beguiling belong to the old-timer. This R-Type Continental (valued at more than $500,000 ) lives in the company’s heritage collection and came out just for the day. It didn’t fail to turn a single head.
