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.

Bentley with grey tires...!

Just received the Bentley model today nicely packed in perfect condition. It even came with the grey tires like the original...! That was a surprise...

Boot contents

I love that there is to be a re-issue of the Bentley Continental. I have an original one and in the boot there is a scaled down suitcase and briefcase. Tiz a shame that costs prevent the issue to mirror the original

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.
