Bentley Sports estate car for Brunei

Here is a very special Bentley. A Bentley special. Coachbuilt that is. Modern coachbuilding. Amazing.

Maurice sent in these images from the "design registration office" in the UK.



This is a special order vehicle for the Royal Family of Brunei, part of their amazing collection of vehicles, semi-explained via The Sultan of Brunei Darussalam's Different Bentleys and The Sultan of Brunei Darussalam's Different Rolls Royces.



The car is an estate version of the Bentley Continental R. It is thought to be called the Bentley Spectre Estate, but it could very well be called the Bentley Sports estate car, I am not sure. It is the joys of finding out information about secret projects of foreign kings. One is never quite sure if the information or speculation is quite right.

Here is the final design diagram. It does look good! Ill take one to the shops.



If the car is a Bentley Spectre, six were made and here are their chassis numbers, name and Brunei registration number plate:

SCBZH04A1SCH00121 Bentley Spectre KF 8787
SCBZH04A3SCH00122 Bentley Spectre KF 8833
SCBZH04A5SCH00123 Bentley Spectre BN 98
SCBZH04A7SCH00124 Bentley Spectre BN 3399
SCBZH04A9SCH00125 Bentley Spectre
SCBZH04A0SCH00126 Bentley Spectre BN 3322

If it is the Bentley Sports estate car a total of 14 were made and here are their chassis numbers, name and Brunei registration number plate:

SCBZH04D8PCH00201 Bentley Sports estate car DPD
SCBZH04DXPCH00202 Bentley Sports estate car BM 9977
SCBZH04D3PCH00204 Bentley Sports estate car KF 1973
SCBZH04D5PCH00205 Bentley Sports estate car BN 1968
SCBZH04D7PCH00206 Bentley Sports estate car KF 1954

SCBZH04D2PCH00209 Bentley Sports estate car BN 1338
SCBZH04A0SCH00210 Bentley Sports estate car KF 9966
SCZBH04A2SCH00211 Bentley Sports estate car KF 8866
SCBZH04A4SCH00212 Bentley Sports estate car
SCBZH04A6SCH00213 Bentley Sports estate car BN 8999
SCBZH04A8SCH00214 Bentley Sports estate car BP 1954
SCBZH04AXSCH00215 Bentley Sports estate car BN 3000
SCBZH04A1SCH00216 Bentley Sports estate car KF 9955
SCBZH04C1SCH00217 Bentley Sports estate car BP 3999

Two cars are missing from this build sequence of chassis numbers, they are:

SCBZB04D7PCH00207 Bentley Continental R JB3
SCBZH04D0PCH00208 Bentley Continental R 1 H

Both these cars had UK registration number plates of JB3 and 1H. The numberplate JB3 is now on another coachbuilt Bentley in the UK thought to be called the Bentley Rapier. The Bentley Rapier has been spotted at Prince Jefri's London house here.

Here is a photo of the Bentley Sports estate car or the Bentley Spectre in real life.



Quite an amazing vehicle! Please send in more photos or the like if anyone has them!

Furthermore, I would love to get the source link to these diagrams, to find out any more information about this estate design based on the Bentley Continental R, so if someone knows, please send it in!

Come on "design registration office" insiders, I want to look up these design diagrams:

Bentley Phoenix
Bentley Spectre
Bentley Silverstone
Bentley Montecarlo
Bentley Imperial
Bentley Grandprix
Bentley Camelot
Bentley Rapier
