224 - Bentley Continental Sports Saloon


£25.99

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.

What a fabulous little model, like the rest of this series, bringing back memories of childhood. Can't fault the quality and at a reasonable price.

Replica Bentley vs original

Love the new model, just like my original but shinier! Cannot fault it.

Sophisticated Stunner

This one really brings back my childhood. The steering, the jewelled lights, if only the doors opened and the bonnet displayed an engine. Nevertheless a well crafted stunner.
