Bentley MkVI: Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith, Silver Dawn & Silver Cloud; Bentley R-Series & S-Series (Classic Reprint)
The Bentley MkVI, introduced in 1946, fairly bristled with new ideas and marked a bold change of direction for a company as conservative as Rolls-Royce, owner of the Bentley marque. The most radical departure from pre-war practice was the fact that the MkVI could be bought with a standard body. Other major new features were the engine, cruciform chassis and hydraulically operated front brakes. However, none of this indicates the true historical importance of the MkVI or why the model is at the heart of this book-quite simply the MkVI’s design was the well-spring from which all the mainstream Rolls-Royce and Bentley models flowed until the advent of the Silver Shadow and Bentley T-Series in 1965. Here is the complete story of the Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith, Silver Dawn and Silver Cloud and the Bentley MkVI, R-Type and S-Type. Covering concept, design and development, production, promotion, publicity and the coachbuilt cars. There is also helpful practical advice on buying and running these cars today, together with appendices of chassis number sequences and dates, build numbers and modifications and development by chassis number. Illustrated with over 160 black and white and color photos, this book is a must have for anyone interested in automotive history.

Der Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith (dt.: Silbernes Gespenst) war der erste PKW, den Rolls-Royce nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg neu konstruierte. Er wurde in der Fabrik in Crewe von 1946 bis 1959 gebaut. Die ersten Wagen hatten ein Fahrgestell mit 3.226 mm Radstand, das auf dem des Vorgangers Wraith basierte, mit schraubengefederten, einzeln aufgehangten Vorderradern und Langsblattfedern an der hinteren, angetriebenen Starrachse. Der Motor war auch eine Weiterentwicklung des Vorkriegsmodells, hatte aber einen neuen Zylinderkopf mit gegengesteuerten Ventilen (Einlass im Kopf hangend, Auslass seitlich stehend). Der Motor besa? anfangs einen Hubraum von 4.257 cm?; 1951 stieg er auf 4.556 cm? und 1954 auf 4.887 cm? bei den Modellen mit langem Radstand. Das Bremssystem war teilhydraulisch: Die Vorderrader hatten hydraulische Bremsen, die Hinterrader waren mechanisch gebremst, wobei die Bremskraft, wie bei den Vorkriegswagen, mechanisch verstarkt wurde, ein System, das Rolls-Royce in Lizenz von Hispano-Suiza ubernommen hatte. Das Fahrgestell mit dem langen Radstand (3.378 mm) wurde 1951 angekundigt und bis 1959 genau 639 mal gefertigt. Die letzten Wagen mit kurzem Radstand entstanden 1953. Insgesamt wurden in 13 Jahren 1.883 Exemplare produziert. Anfangs gab es nur ein manuelles Vierganggetriebe, aber ab 1952 wurde wahlweise ein Automatikgetriebe von General Motors angeboten. Der Silver Wraith war der letzte Rolls-Royce, der mit einer Vielzahl von verschiedenen Aufbauten, die von unabhangigen Stellmacherbetrieben gefertigt wurden, verfugbar war. Die Zahl dieser Karosseriebauer nahm in der Zeit nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg stetig und rapide ab. wikipedia

Wraith Squadron (Star Wars: X-Wing Series #5) (Book 5)
They are the galaxy's most elite fighting force. And as the battle against the Empire rages, the X-wing fighters risk life and machine to protect the Rebel Alliance. Now they must go on a daring undercover mission--as the crew of an Imperial warship.

It is Wedge Antilles' boldest creation: a covert-action unit of X-wing fighters, its pilots drawn from the dregs of other units, castoffs and rejects given one last chance. But before the new pilots can complete their training, the squadron's base is attacked by former Imperial admiral Trigit, and Wraith Squadron is forced to swing into action--taking over an Imperial warship and impersonating its crew. The mission: to gain vital intelligence about Trigit's secret weapons, to sabotage the admiral's plans, and to lure him into an Alliance trap. But the high-stakes gamble pits Wraith Squadron's ragtag renegades against the Empire's most brilliant master of guile and deception.

Are they up to the challenge?

If not, the penalty is instant death.
