The Continental Mark II debuted at the 1955 Paris Motor Show. Its fashion-forward lines fit in nicely with the European Marques also on display. First available for 1956, this incredible motorcar was the product of mostly hand-built construction utilizing only the finest materials available. The interior of these exclusive vehicles was lavished with power features, full leather and instrumentation that rivaled the precision of the finest watchmakers. Power was derived from the 368 cubic inch V-8 that produced an incredible 285 horsepower. This level of performance and luxury was not without cost, considering the cost of nearly $10,000 when new. The Mark II attracted the same clientele of Rolls-Royce with numerous famous owners including Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Nelson Rockefeller, and U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower. Only 3,005 would be built between 1956 and 1957 and today the Continental Mark II remains to be one of the most sought after models by collectors across the globe.
