1951 Bentley Mk VI Aluminium
1951 Bentley Mk VI finished in Old English White over Black with Light tan hide interior. Chassis number B161KL is one of only 6 Mk Vi's to be fitted with this beautifully rakish and elegant aluminium Mulliner body. The coachbuilt cars were considerably lighter and stiffer than the Standard Steel Saloon: they benefited from the aircraft construction techniques that Mulliner had perfected during the war years, with much of the framework in cast aluminium and most of the outer panels in aluminium sheet. This example has had only five former keepers, the last kept her for over 18 years. There is an impressive history file with many invoices from specialists as well as past MOT test certificates and the original build sheets from the Mulliner factory. Presented in wonderfully original condition throughout, the car retains all its original tools both in the small tool kit and in the boot. This Mk VI drives beautifully with a silent engine and very smooth transmission, perfect for events and touring. A fine example of an extremely scarce model.
