Bentley R-type Continental: The Evolution of an Icon
The Bentley Continental is one of the most iconic cars on the road. The name first entered the company’s lexicon in 1952 with the R-Type Continental.
With just three strokes of the designer’s pen, the shape of the Continental comes to life – the striking power line, muscular rear haunches and swooping, fast roof line. These three elegant styling cues are still a fundamental part of the Continental’s DNA over six decades later.
