Bentley came out of the WW2 starting blocks with a bang.
The MkVI was effectively an all-new car, and had plenty of new technology to boast about. It was the first Bentley with a steel body as standard, although many buyers still took the coachbuilding route - and rightly so, as so many of the convertibles, tourers and shooting brakes were so attractive looking.
Its chassis was quite advanced for the time, with independent front suspension, servo brakes, a four-speed gearbox and the very useful centralised chassis lubrication system.
