At a recent Bonhams auction in England, the high-dollar sales were both Bentleys — a 1927 3-Litre Speed tourer sold for $379,197 and a 1956 S-Series Continental sports saloon brought $426,282.

But what we’re curious about is your opinion of the respective interiors of those two cars. Do you prefer the raw simplicity of the ’27 model or the green-carpeted elegance of the Continental?

  1. WHAT? The nod went to the ’56?? I’m stunned. The ’27 is obviously not a “shee-shee” car, yet most voted for the ’56. Guess I’m getting too old.
