224 Bentley Continental Sports Saloon black/grey + box

60 GBP

This is the model that really set the standards in 1961, with so many new features that had not been seen before. This was the first with jewelled headlamps, jewelled rear lights too, the first with chrome-plated fittings, the first with the superbly engineered steering system and even the first with a spare wheel!

There are essentially two colours available: this black and grey and very pale green and olive green. There are scarcer apple green and white versions of the pale colour to look out for. A gold edition was made for Gift Set 20.

This example has fabulous paintwork but slightly tarnished bumpers. Very close to immaculate.

It will be supplied with a reproduction box.
