1998 Bentley Continental

Story and History

1998 Bentley Continental T "Special 2 Seater Version" LHD

The remarkably beautiful Continental R, introduced in 1992, gave Bentley again motor cars that captured the true elegance of their bespoke coachbuilt touring cars of both pre and post war periods

The Continental T was an upgraded version of the R which brought to Bentley another dimension of supercar performance together with a somewhat bulldog appearance too

Best described as the Bentley version of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage of the 1980's

Just like the Aston the Bentley has a top speed in excess of 170 mph and that when the frontal area was not exactly too aerodynamic either

The Bentley by 1998 model year had 420 bhp and over 600 ft/lbs of torque so monumental performance was instantly at hand - and all this brought together in the separate production line reserved for Bentley's coachbuilt motorcars

If one was of the mind and felt that at £235.000 (remember this is nearly 20 years ago) more could be expended making your car even more personal you could visit Trevor Gaye in the Mulliner Park Ward Division

Trevor, with years of experience in this field, would lead you into arenas of individual design and bespoke appointments that would leave you astounded - by both what he offered and by the cost too

Nevertheless he ensured that you came out with something unique - a true one off - and this is what we love and indeed have here

Our friends from across the Pond are certainly not ones to shy away from having something Special and this is what led the wonderfully christened James Carter LeBlanc to have Trevor help him to specify his own unique Bentley - and didn't they do a grand job too!

No rear seats and just a special luggage deck behind the two luxurious front seats and the most outrageous Bentley Flying 'B' Mascot - straight out of the 1930's

Twin tone hides inside are complimented by Turned Aluminium throughout, adding to the sporting feel and again an acknowledgement of sporting Bentley's from another era - the 1920's this time

We knew of this car before she came to us as a good friend and customer from Holland had kept her in his collection for many years and was only the second owner since new

We have now given her to her third owner, a French nobleman and she now will reside in the beautiful area of Chantilly next to an appropriate Bentley T2
