Lot details Registration No: YSU 281 Chassis No: B116ZY Mot Expiry: Exempt
- Notably late `ZY' series R-Type dating from the final months of production
- Nicely patinated Red leather upholstery, 4-speed automatic transmission
- Part of a European collection for many years and recently treated to some light recommissioning
A notably late R-Type hailing from the model's final and most evolved `ZY' chassis series, this handsome Standard Steel Saloon is understood to have formed part of an Italian collection for over twenty years. Formerly UK road registered as `YSU 281' - a number plate which has not been re-allocated by the DVLA to another vehicle - the Bentley has been NOVA declared since its repatriation and is accompanied by the associated certificate. Starting readily upon inspection and driven a short distance for photography purposes, chassis B116ZY presents as an older, partial restoration. Showing an unwarranted 81,000 miles to its odometer and sporting nicely patinated Red leather upholstery, the R-Type also boasts a sunroof, carpeted boot (complete with spare wheel and jack etc), four-speed automatic transmission and benefits from being recently serviced by a marque specialist. An inexpensive entry to `proper' Bentley ownership during the marque's centenary year.
