1947 Bentley Mk VI with Bentley Eight Engine by Overtons of Leigh

Bentley SRH5 - Bentley Special by Overtons of Leigh.

Bentley Mk VI Special

This vehicle has been wonderfully built and crafted with no expense spared or corner cut, a truly marvellous individual motor car. It is no surprise then that it has been maintained and looked after to an equally high standard.

Bentley Mk VI Special

The vehicle was built around a 1947 Bentley Mk6 chassis (center section), with a 6.75 litre V8 engine, taken from a Bentley 8, as are it's powersteering, automatic gearbox and brake system.

It has adjustable suspension for racing and has been raced on the continent. However, driven socially it is extremely economical for the size of engine.

Bentley Mk VI Special

The body is aluminium and has been hand rolled specifically for this special Bentley. All parts on this vehicle are either genuine Bentley or hand crafted by skilled professionals. There are also 2 seats in the rear for short journeys.

Bentley Mk VI Special

It is a stunningly beautiful motor car with classic Bentley looks which is very pleasurable and rewarding to drive.

Bentley Mk VI Special

Must be seen to be truly appreciated! £95,000.00 GBP

It is surprising to see Bentley Azure wheels in a Mk VI, but you can do what you like with a special, that is the beauty of them.

Merry Christmas, and a safe holiday and festive season from Bentley Spotting.

The '47 Special by Overtons of Leigh definitely has late 1990's Turbo R/ Continental R/T alloy wheels, which I think look quite good on this special, whilst the 1947 Bentley Mk VI Special with R Type Engine by Hofmann has period steel wheels, and the 1949 Bentley Mk VI Special by Padgett has after market wheels which are not from the factory, but still look ok. The modern Turbo alloys on a 1947 Bentley Mk VI with Bentley Eight Engine by Overtons of Leigh fit with the age of the engine, and surprising look quite good and modernise this special. But really that is what is great by having a special. You can do what ever you want and tell people who don't like it to bugger off. Not that comments are not welcome, but the nature of Bentley Specials is to do what you want!
