1949 Bentley Mark VI

 bentley mk vi litre special saloon  umczdThe 1949 Bentley Mark VI was a continuation of the luxury car model introduced in 1946. The Mark VI was a significant departure from its pre-war predecessor, the Mark V, featuring a new, more modern design, with a pressed-steel body and a new chassis with independent front suspension.

The car was powered by a 4.3-liter inline-six engine, with an output of 125 horsepower. It was paired with a four-speed manual transmission, with an optional overdrive. The car could reach a top speed of around 90 mph, making it one of the faster cars of its time.

Inside, the Mark VI boasted a spacious, comfortable cabin, with plenty of room for up to four passengers. The car was available in both standard and custom coachwork, with the latter often featuring luxurious materials and bespoke design elements.

The Mark VI was a commercial success for Bentley, with more than 5,200 units produced between 1946 and 1952. It proved popular with a range of customers, from wealthy private buyers to governments and other official organizations. The Mark VI was also the last Bentley model to be built entirely in-house, as the company was soon to be acquired by Rolls-Royce.
