1939 Bentley 4.25-Litre Embiricos Coupe – Amelia Island RM [31 Photos]

 

This Bentley really stops your eye dead on sight.  Teardrop fenders with sharp upper edges?  Pinched, gangster glasshouse?  Suicide doors and fastback tail?

What is this!

A Bentley true and true, with its bodywork a recreation to one-off Embiricos Coupe specification.

From its rounded waterfall of a grille to its sleek tail… we adore this car!

Someone else does too.  It sold for $671k at the RM Sotheby’s Amelia Island 2017 auction.
