    Bentley Continental T Le Mans expert needed

    I have the opportunity to by a Bentley Continental T Le Mans , year 2002 . They have only produced 5 , so it is very rare .

    I could probably have it at an interesting price .

    Is there a market for this car ?  It this a ' nice ' model ? already a collector ?

    Any input from people who know about this kind of cars is appreciated .

    Thanks

    4 left hand drive, one right.

    It's one of my favorites from the era, a bruiser in a savile row suit.

    How interesting?

    Are there any Bentleys in the last 30 years that have done anything other than depreciate? I didn't know what this car was, so I googled it, and it just looks like a Bentley...


    Re: Bentley Continental T Le Mans expert needed

    At some stage, older cars start to appreciate again, if the model is of any interest . Look at what happen to the 911's , even the models no one wanted in the 90's have now more then doubled in value .

    This car is representative of it's time as it is the transition between RR management and the modern Continent GT's .

    The other, very important fact , is that they built only 5 Le Man ! And this car is one of these 5 . I know nothing about older cars , specially Bentleys ..... that's why I am enquiring .  

    The price I would probably pay for this car is the price for a regular Continental T , the one produced at 322 pieces

    That does sound interesting. I don't know anything about race spec Bentleys or how exactly their price behaves, but seeing as how there were only 5 of them ever (and I don't think there are many racing bentleys at all) I'd say this could end up being a good investment over time.

    But don't take my word for it, do some more research and then make your decision.

    Isn't that what Gnil is trying to do? smiley

    Exactly ! 

    I did not find very much . None for sale that is for sure . I did find out about regular continental T's . The market seems to be still a bit young for them, but special models, like a Mulliner do seem to raise some interest .

    I will see. Thursday is the day .

    I look forward to your new transportation mode. Did you already get the tweed jacket, pocket watch in a chain and the single piece eyeglass? Essential driving gear for the respectable Bentley gentleman indecision

    That's not a gentleman's car. That the car the top bruiser for the top boss in a Guy Richie movie drives. The tweed coat is to hide the gun...

    This has always been one of my "win the lotto fantasy cars" and I'd have to think if you hold on to it for a time it will appreciate. I just hope you own stock in a petrol company.

    Gentlemen, start your engines !!!! indecision   Mine will be huge

    I think in your mind you already made the choice to buy it, but since it's such a rare (risky) purchase you wanted us to agree with you. smiley

    We are fully behind you Gnil. 

    By the way, will you get a chauffeur too? Or do you plan to drive it yourself? Just curious. Smiley

    Don't be silly now. Buy the car. You want it. We want it. Deal done. Smiley

    I want to see a perfect circle drift around Paradeplatz with tons of tire smoke. Full on sideways with your left arm out the window doing the "hang loose" sign with your hand. hangloose.gif

    I pay your Scuderia entrance fee if I can snap a photo of the spectacle.

    Awesome car, if you think you can have a good price on it, I'd surely take the jump!

    Re: Bentley Continental T Le Mans expert needed

    Don't know much about Bentley, but think the Continental T is über cool, very stylish compared to the newer versions. Having a special version of this for a good price sounds like a good buy, but probably not a good investment (like any car).
