Truck-loads of Rolls-Royce and Bentleys

Sometimes when you are driving down the road you see simply amazing things.

And if you are a Bentley spotter - I think this is quite shocking!

Simply truck loads of Rolls-Royce and Bentleys in convoy. That is a truck convoy of truck loads of Rolls-Royce and Bentley cars. That's right truck-loads of Rolls-Royce and Bentleys.

It happened around this time last year, to be precise on 2008/10/27 at 13.43 on the A35 near Strasbourg, France.

It is kind of too much to take in.

Total sensory overload. Look, this is truck # 2!

There are too many to look at. Oooh Camargue.

My eyes are hurting. Nice T and R type.

Oh there is another truck. Truck # 3. What's that?

Look what's up there! It one of the two Rolls Royce Silver Wing Landaulette cars by Hooper.

Wow, some S and some R.


Now from the other lane angle.

There are three trucks in a row...

Now back up to truck # 2.

Look at that paint work!

Now back to Truck # 1.

Woo red Corniche.

Woo two tone Corniche.

Now it gets even better!

Amazingly enough, another person going down the opposite side of the A35 highway got to see this truck convoy and started snapping pictures!

Here is Truck # 2.

Woow - the rear of Truck # 3.

Geepers! It is a fourth truck load! Truck # 4. This time with a stretched Silver Shadow!

Oh my gosh - there is a fifth truck! Truck # 5. Just too much to look at!

After taking a deep breath, the summary is as follows:

Truck # 1
The front section has a two tone Red/Black Corniche with white roof, and a R-Type or possible Mark VI in black on top with a red Corniche under them. The rear part of the truck has a white Corniche with black roof on top with a white 2 door coachbuilt S type at the rear, and under them is a black Silver Wraith.

Truck # 2
The front section has a uniquely painted gold and black R type and a red Camargue that looks like a limited edition on top, with a silver Silver Shadow under them with UK rego XXR7. The rear of the truck has a white Silver Shadow with non original hubcaps and an unrestored silver R Type 2 door rego MLW578. Under them is a rusty white Bentley T with a black roof that has a missing the front bumper bar.

Truck # 3
This truck has the blue Rolls-Royce Silver Wing Landaulette by Hooper with unique spats, and a white/pale blue coachbuilt, I think James Young S series UK rego VUD877 with nothing under it, and at the rear there is a 1935 Bentley 4 Litre Sports Saloon UK rego HVX400 that was at auction a couple of years ago here, and under that is a black Silver Cloud.

Truck # 4
This has the white stretched limo Silver Shadow, and under that is a two tone Silver Shadow II, and at the rear I think that is the end of a black Silver Cloud, and the other cars are cut off.

Truck # 5
The front has a black Silver Shadow II, with a silver Silver Shadow behind, and under is a Silver Spirit or Turbo R. The rear of the truck has a possible silver fixed head Corniche, and a white Corniche on top, and under there is what seems to be a black Silver Shadow and another red car, presumably a Shadow as well.

Spotting them all was actually harder than it looks. Send in your emails and comments if I have got any wrong!

Someone should know which company or person would transport 5 truck loads of Rolls-Royce and Bentleys on the same day. I have not worked it out yet, but someone knows. Please do tell!

A big thank you to and S(c) for taking these amazing pictures.

Bentley HVX400 on truck No 3: This was originally a 3-1/2 litre with coachwork by Mayfair modified by Harold L Good of Essex and brought up to to 4.1/4 litre specification hence the HVX Essex registration number from 1939. Belonged to my grandfather Lawrie Sargeant from 1948 to 1954. T C S Sargeant, Goudhurst, Kent.
