The Bentley MK VI was a luxury sports sedan, built by Rolls-Royce, between 1946-1952. It was the first all-steel coachwork and the first complete car assembled and finished at the Rolls-Royce factory. They also sent chassis to independent coach builders who put their own unique touches on the MK VI.
Bentley Mark VI Four-Door Sports Saloons used a 4.5 liter engine with displacement of 4566 cm3 or 278.7 cubic inches. It was rear-wheel drive and its power was transferred to the wheels by a 4-speed manual transmission. The top speed was 165 km/h (103 mph) as declared by the factory.
The Motor magazine tested the car in 1951 and found it could could accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 15.0 seconds. A tested fuel consumption of 16.5 miles per imperial gallon (17.1 L/100 km; 13.7 mpg‑US) was noted. The price of the test car was £4,473 including taxes.
The Mark VI chassis was used to revive the Bentley Corniche project, which was abandoned when their test car was destroyed in WW2 bombing. They were the most expensive production cars in the world and the world’s fastest 4/5-seater saloons.
