1936 Derby Bentley 4 1/4 Liter Pillarless Sports Saloon by Vanden Plas
This very special 1936 Bentley 4 1/4 Liter Pillarless Sports Saloon was delivered new with the handsome pillarless Vanden Plas coachwork that it retains to this day. Details on the original factory order include note of the louvers stretched back through the scuttle. It wears an older restoration and would benefit from straightforward recommissioning. By the end of the 1930s the Derby Bentley, introduced towards the beginning of that decade following the firm's takeover by Rolls-Royce, had undergone a number of significant developments. Thus, the new 4 1/4 -Liter model offered more power than before while retaining the well-proven chassis with its faultless gear-change and servo-assisted brakes. It was the construction of modern highways in Continental Europe, where the car had been extensively tested by W.O. Bentley, that enabled him to suggest multiple improvements. This unlikely synergy gave birth to 'The Silent Sports Car', a car with unique qualities of precision construction and exceptional handling in a package which represented a true pinnacle of elegance.
