224 - Bentley Continental Sports Saloon


€40,95

Released in 1961, originally in two variations – either black/silver or two-tone green – this lavishly featured model was given jewelled lights, an opening boot (that housed a spare wheel), ‘Glidamatic’ suspension and innovative fingertip ‘self-centering’ steering. The look was completed by silver plated bumpers and a radiator capped with Bentley’s iconic ‘Flying B’ mascot – simplified somewhat due to the model’s 1:50 scale.

This extensive tooling was rumoured to have have been too expensive for the Corgi factory to maintain, hence its deletion in 1965 despite sales of over 960,000. In typically idiosyncratic Corgi fashion, the box depicted an all-green Bentley – a colour the model was never available in.

An absolutely impressive model!

This is a very nice re-issue of an impressive model considering the year it was originally designed. I was delighted to see that it now comes with grey tyres.

One of my favorites

Love the Corgi Bentley. This replica is very well done. Maybe my favorite from the CMC so far. This model is such a beauty, that for me it is difficult to put it away in the vitrine, just holding it and driving it around a bit on my desk is too much fun :) The boot closes with just the right amount of 'snap', the self- steering is supercool, the jewel head- and taillights are perfect and the paint job is flawless. Well done CMC!

The quality of this Bentley is superb

Although this model would have been originally made in 1961 a little before I started collecting Corgi toy cars. The quality of this Bentley is superb, as are the other cars in this series. I am happy to add this to my collection of new and original Corgi Toys.
