1978 Bentley Corniche

Story and History

1978 Bentley Corniche II - 1 of only 7 seven produced

A really nice example of one of our very favourite cars

We have carried out much work on this Bentley, for the previous owner is a real enthusiast, who is not shy of looking after his many cars generously, and she really is a corker - refinished wood veneers, re-trimmed and re-stuffed front seats and armrests, major service work, overhauled glass sunroof with new tilt and slide mechanism so that performance now, is nigh on faultless

I have known this lovely car since the 1990's and always enjoyed using her for she sits securely on the road, with supreme elegance and whisks along in supreme silence, the engine and gearbox being of the nicest I have ever had the pleasure to use

The pinnacle of John Blatchley's many designs (he was head of design for this project) the Corniche saloon represents some of his most elegant work and the series II, of which only 7 were Bentley versions, are perhaps the most desirable

A very rare motorcar and one for the true connoisseur
