I don't think it is a Bentley Continental. Any other, better shots?

no, this is the only take, it reminds me of similar scene, with Bentley supposed to be the producer´s car,
and we never could identify coachbuilder.
first impression was that of british make with italien influence, and the grille mask looks like Bentley, think it is extreme rare, and someone wanted to have his car in his movie.

Something French coachbuilt from early 50s?? Delahaye, Talbot, Salmson???? Doesn't smell British, and is smaller than a Bentley would have been.

Delahaye :think: have to do some homework.

Rear wing here looks finned, not smooth or rounded. Other possibilities might be Delage or Hotchkiss, but I'm guessing wildly.

We could, but the shame and embarrassment would remain for a long time ......

Somehow does not look UK to me, but could be wrong. The biggest difficulty is finding anything with the dipping bodyline on the door and a single piece windscreen.

WOW! That's a Jaguar bodied by Spohn in 1957. I'm unsure of the model, I'll upload a picture in a second. Incredible find!

photo was published in Auto Motor & Sport 1957
the cluster of lights and grille made me believe in british car at first sight

the grille + jaguar mascot are the only parts spend by MK VIII
the side grille is that of MB 300SL

Spohn well known for Maybach creation, but Maybach ordered from Saoutchik as a consolation.

Nobody could really accuse Spohn of improving the post-WW2 cars he worked on from the evidence at http://www.autopuzzles.com/forum/index.php?topic=12486.0 , but some of the 1930s models look good - Link to "www.coachbuild.com" .

If 1957, we can say Mk.VIII - which tallies with the grille and windscreen. Not pretty, though ... :/
