Can’t settle for any ‘ol Bentley? Well, how about this 1947 Bentley Mark VI Fixed Head Coupé by Figoni et Falaschi, slated for auction in London and expected to go for a million dollars?
Why? Well, the post-war period offered a return to luxury after nearly a decade of focusing on military vehicles, and more importantly, it offered the return of civilian steel. On to of that, this is the only Mark VI that went through the hands of Parisian coach builder Figoni et Falaschi, a man known for incorporating aeroplane motifs and consulting fashion designers when creating a body. The man reportedly spent two thousand hours on this one—and the evidence is in the details.
