1950 Bentley MkVI

The Bentley Mark VI was produced from 1946 to 1952. The Mark VI four-door standard steel sports saloon was the first post-war luxury car from Bentley. Announced in May 1946 and produced from 1946 to 1952, it was also both the first car from Rolls-Royce with all-steel coachwork and the first complete car assembled and finished at their factory.
