After being purchased by Rolls-Royce in 1931, Bentley production was moved from London to Derby and later to Crewe. Following on from the hugely successful series of T-Series models, the next generation of cars also proved extremely capable. The Bentley Eight offered slight handling improvements and was so popular that sales expanded from the original UK market to Europe and the United States. Fuel injection and anti-lock brakes were added in 1986 with leather upholstery and power memory seats becoming standard in 1987.
This lovely left hand drive example from Japan, is presented in metallic grey with the rare Claret leather interior which looks superb. Despite being a more affordable Bentley, the 1990 Bentley Eight still offers a level of luxury and prestige that is unmatched by most other cars on the market. Today, the Bentley Eight remains a sought-after classic among collectors and enthusiasts alike.
