I have a 30 year old bentley eight 109000 miles It drives like a new car it does 15 mpg( imp) on petrol
It was bought from Hanwells of London .It was presented as a bentley should be,in perfect
condition ,fully serviced .I have driven it from sept 14 to now (april15) I have covered 9000 miles.it is a pleasure to drive and gets a lot of attention in Ireland as there are not a lot of old rolls or bentleys here.If you want a fun car buy a bentley .I have my car on LPG and I get equivelant of 22/24 mpg. I also have a 4 year old e200 cdi whichi I bought new (depreciating @ 5000€ a year) but I prefer driving my Bentley 8 I use it every day & do 300 miles a week in it .
Google driving a 84 bentley 8 daily 09697 and see the details of the car.They are not that expensive to run as a regular mechanic can look after them they are old tec and easy.Plugs,filters,oil, all standard
Parts are not expensive if got on the web.Buy one from a dealer with a good history and all stamps on the book & you will be good for years ( give Hanwells a call) I even got 6 months warranty on parts.
I am sorry I did not buy one 10 years ago,NO depreciation
Cheap classic Insurance Cheap classic road tax ( in Ireland ) if I do decide to buy another one it will be from Hanwells.
The car looks & drives like a new car the leather looks new .the wood is re done.
