“This Continental R encapsulates the two essential elements in Sir Elton’s life,” says Car & Classic Head of Editorial Chris Pollitt. “The music legend is well known for his love of interesting cars and it is befitting of such a vehicle and original owner that music would not come through any ordinary audio system: the trio of amplifiers behind a panel in the boot, driving the 14-speaker MB Quart install, won’t let it be All Quiet On The Western Front.”

Finished in dark blue over a gray leather interior with wood trim throughout the luxurious interior. Rocket Man’s Bentley was appropriately customized with a Bespoke 14-speaker MB Quart audio system that features multiple amps. This right-hand drive Bentley has 95,921 miles and MOT until December.
