224 - Bentley Continental Sports Saloon


$42.99

Released in 1961, originally in two variations – either black/silver or two-tone green – this lavishly featured model was given jewelled lights, an opening boot (that housed a spare wheel), ‘Glidamatic’ suspension and innovative fingertip ‘self-centering’ steering. The look was completed by silver plated bumpers and a radiator capped with Bentley’s iconic ‘Flying B’ mascot – simplified somewhat due to the model’s 1:50 scale.

This extensive tooling was rumoured to have have been too expensive for the Corgi factory to maintain, hence its deletion in 1965 despite sales of over 960,000. In typically idiosyncratic Corgi fashion, the box depicted an all-green Bentley – a colour the model was never available in.

Scratched model

While the model was very nice I was disappointed to find it with a surface scratch in the passenger door. The scratch did not go through to the metal surface but it’s in the surface finish. All of my Corgi models are usually first rate, but I was let down with this model.

Terrific Miniature Engineering

This beautiful little model is loaded with features: opening trunk, windshield glass, steering wheel, suspension. I'm mainly a Dinky collector, but this Corgi makes Dinky autos look a bit primitive. I look forward to expanding my Corgi collection.
