Bentley S3 Continental Two Door Saloon with bodywork by H J Mulliner
Bentley Continental GT Speed
BC100XA is the ninth of just eleven cars built by H J Mulliner before the Vilhelm Koren designed S3 Continental “Chinese Eye” was introduced.
Eight were Right Hand Drive, with the other three Left Hand Drive cars going to America (BC6LXA), Switzerland (BC52LXA) and Belgium (BC104LXA).
I am the ninth, tenth or eleventh owner (research is ongoing!) having bought the car from The Real Car Company Ltd in October 2018.
