Todays car is a Bentley Mark IV, Standard Steel Sports Saloon, from 1949. Just like all other cars of which I posted HDR-pictures this week, this British beauty was spotted in Mariefred on the Day of Steam. The Bentley Motors Limited was founded in 1919 by the British engineer Walter Owen Bentley. In 1931 Bently was bought by Rolls-Royce and since 1998 it’s a part of the Volkswagen Group. But Bentley still have their business based in Crewe, England. The Mark IV model was the first post-war luxury car from Bentley. It was also the first Bentley from Rolls-Royce with design based on the Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith of 1946 and Silver Dawn of 1949. A total of 5 202 Mark IV was produced between 1946 to 1952.
