Default Derby Bentley 4 1/4 Liter

I've never been in one of these or even driven one, but they look great! BenzBoy what are these like to own? Not that I am in a position for another car, but one day perhaps.

They are highly sort-after as a swift and reliable rally and touring vehicle. A good one will cost about $90,000 upwards in Australia and for that you can expect comfortable 120kph touring with fairly good handling. So little to go wrong with them - but hideously expensive when it does. They are in essence, a scaled down Phantom Continental.
Regards,
Brian

Thanks, sound interesting. I'll have to keep an eye out to see one in the flesh at shows. Perhaps at the British car show sunday week. Are there many in Australia Brian?

There are about 35 in the RROCA and there would be a few more that are members of the Derby Bentley Society and the Vintage Sports Car Club but not members of the RROCA. You may see some at All British Day either in the Bentley section, the RROCA section or with the VSCCA.

Brian
