‘1953-1955 Bentley Continental R Sport Coupe La Sarthe’ by Bensport

Introducing the ‘1953-1955 Bentley Continental R Sport Coupe La Sarthe’ by Bensport.

A bespoke build, the Bentley La Sarthe is an opportunity to own a hand built, bespoke Bentley 1953-1955 with original chassis and engine. The Bentley La Sarthe Fastback GT Coupe is a classically stylish modern interpretation of the pinnacle of Bentley design.

A new beginning; in the original spirit of coachbuilding, the Bentley Continental R Sport Coupe.

The car features carefully considered sympathetic improvements, to the car's original 1950s engineering, making La Sarthe a pleasure to drive in modern traffic. With full aluminium body hand built, using traditional techniques, by the finest British craftsmen.

A very personal creation, sitting on its carefully selected, unmodified but completely restored R-Type chassis, La Sarthe is a true 1950s grand tourer, and can be placed alongside the most elegant coach-built cars ever created.

Traditional coachbuilding techniques are employed producing the aluminium body, all panels are produced on an English wheel and checked on a traditional wooden buck. Whilst the body is being completed the chassis is disassembled & restored to brand new. The engine is rebuilt to as new & a free flow exhaust fitted considerably uprating the performance.

The rear axle is also upgraded to continental specification allowing for very relaxed cruising at modern motorway speeds.

An incredible feat of Engineering and available exclusively from JD Classics.
