So earlier today, I was watching JayEmm review a Bentley Brooklands (so much want!) pillarless coupe.
Halfway through his thoughts on the ZF automatic, I started wondering what was the last Bentley to have a manual transmission.
Turns out it was the Bentley R Type/Mark VII, last produced in 1955 according to Wikipedia.
And I wasn’t expecting the transmission to be where it is.
I thought that was only a racing thing. Then again we are talking Bentley here.
