Today at their annual Goodwood Revival sale in Sussex, Bonhams will auction a whole array of cars. Amongst lots offered is a striking 1937 Bentley that was rebodied as a ‘Woodie’ shooting brake circa 1950.

 

Estimated at a guide of £100,000 to £125,000 ($129,000 to $162,000, €112,000 to €140,000 or درهم475,000 to درهم593,000) the 4.5-litre car has coachwork by Vincent’s of Reading – a firm described whose “clientele was the provincial upper classes and minor aristocracy who wanted a limousine or saloon that reflected their station in life” – and was bought by Roger Saul, founder of Mulberry, at Pebble Beach in the late 1990s.

Saul – who ran the Charlton House Hotel in Shepton Mallet, Somerset (now owned by Duncan Bannatyne) for 13 years from 1996 – used the Bentley to convey guests on fishing trips until selling it in 2003.

 

Completely refurbished in recent years “with no expense spared,” here is a head turner that combines both beauty and practicality.
