Bentley Camargue Spotted

I do like a rare Bentley spotting.

This is certainly one. There is only one. Well kind of.

Bentley Camargue

There is only one Bentley Camargue. It is the 1985 SCBYJ000XFCH10150. The 'BYJ' indicates a Bentley Camargue.

Here it is. Sporting the standard 1200TU registration of test/press cars from Crewe. Crewe test/press cars still have this numberplate you know.

A previous article here explains that the Camargue was actually designed as a Bentley with twin circular headlights and a Bentley grill with badges. Here is a design sketch.

So what is this car on the road then?

Well it is a Rolls Royce to Bentley conversion Bentley Camargue.

And I really like it.

Registration C822 KAX is a Rolls Royce on the books, not a Bentley. But who cares, the car is great!

What is also really interesting is that the rear lights are custom! Certainly not the standard.

It is great to see a Bentley Camargue on the street.

Thanks to Maurice for the pictures.

Update. Here is the car as a Rolls Royce before it had its identity reassignment surgery.

Thanks Andy for the pre-op pic.

The rear lights are from some Ferrari of the 70's, like the 365 GTC/4.
