Shine Motafrenz Show - 2011 - Best in Show

Best 1950 - 1979 AND Best in Show

Bentley - 1954 - Model R Bentley

4.5 litre 6 cylinder

In line F head engine (inlet valves in the head, exhaust valves in the block).

This is the first "Automatic" Bentley or Rolls Royce model ever produced.

Denis writes about his car:-

What I have done to it etc:

The car is original but maintained, but all mechanicals are still as they left the factory.

Why I love it:

I have been fanatical about Rolls Royce/Bentley Cars since I was a small boy. To me, these cars represented the pinnacle of automotive excellence, all done with Elegance and Style. I chose a Bentley because there is some truth in the old saying:


Provenance/How I got it:

In 2008 I purchased my Bentley in Adelaide, as this seems to be the last place on earth, where you can still buy an unrestored original.

I made the purchase after my partner pointed out that this was one of my "Life Ambitions" and that perhaps it might be a good idea to buy one before I became too old to drive/enjoy it properly.

How I use him:

I drive him 2 or 3 days a week, as I believe a car should be driven.

How I feel about owning this car:

I feel very privileged to be the custodian of such a fine "Proper Motor Car".
