1947 Bentley Mark VI

bentley The Bentley Mark VI was produced from 1946 to 1952 and was the first post-war Bentley model. In 1947, the model continued largely unchanged from the previous year. The Mark VI was the first Bentley to be offered with factory-built coachwork, and it was also the first to feature a steel body instead of the traditional aluminum coachwork.

Under the hood, the Mark VI was powered by a 4.3-liter straight-six engine, which was later upgraded to a 4.6-liter engine in 1951. The engine was mated to a four-speed manual transmission, and the car was capable of reaching a top speed of around 100 mph.

The Mark VI also featured a redesigned chassis and suspension, which provided a more comfortable ride than previous Bentley models. It was also the first Bentley to feature hydraulic brakes, which provided improved stopping power.

Overall, the Bentley Mark VI was a significant step forward for the brand, as it marked the beginning of the company’s transition from pre-war designs to modern post-war cars.
