The R-Type followed the successful Mk VI and was considered an interim model pending an all-new design that was to become the Bentley S-Type. Nonetheless Bernard L. King did act very well by deciding to compile an individual volume on this model. The R-Type was important in having been the first Rolls-Royce produced motor car with an automatic gearbox offered as an option and a car with very few bugs or vices. This book contains most comprehensive information on all and each and every vital detail of cars from this model series that is the essence of what can be said in this review.
