Feel free to contribute, with two caveats: Nothing beyond 1933. Nothing to do with Jay Leno.
The last Bentley before its acquisition by Rolls-Royce - the 1930 8-litre inline-6:
About 78 are known to survive, many with modified or altered bodies - only a few with the original Mulliner bodies are thought to exist.
Meanwhile, the local dealership here has a 2011 Bentley Continental Flying Spur with a 6-litre 48-valve W-12 engine (~600 horses) and an 8-speed overdrive automatic:
It's in Silver Frost metallic with Palomino leather and walnut veneer panels. Sadly, it's too expensive for me to own and maintain, apart from the cost of gas for the 6-litre W-12 engine.
@siva.chander beautiful machines, both!
