Bentley MK VI Cabriolet

Understated and elegant, this 1949 Bentley Mk VI wears a very special and unique one-off cabriolet body by PininFarina, commissioned by Dr. Willi Spieler of Switzerland.

Vehicle Overview

Chassis number B435CD was cleared from chassis testing in May of 1948, before being shipped to Turin to receive its new body. Personally penned by Batista “Pinin” Farina, the MkVI was bodied under his supervision and completed in time to be unveiled at the 1949 Geneva Salon. It was then delivered to the selling dealer, and assigned its first registration, BM1949. A scant few Bentley MkVI chassis were bodied by the great Italian Carrozzeria including a Coupé version. It is believed that no other open cars were constructed in the same style as this. It is said that Battista’s son Sergio as well as his grandson Paolo felt this elegant Bentley cabriolet was one of their favorite creations from the great designer.
