Bentley won back-to-back Le Mans titles in 1929 and 1930 with the legendary Speed Six, one of the most successful racing cars of its era. Following its “Blower” continuation series, Bentley will be constructing 12 Speed Six cars, identical to the originals that raced at Le Mans. The team of specialists at Bentley’s Mulliner division will develop and build the Speed Six series, assisted by an array of companies across the UK. The continuation models start with a full 3D scan of the original car, along with blueprints and analysis of two surviving cars. The Speed Six is powered by a 6.5-liter inline-six making 200 horsepower in a chassis with an 11-foot wheelbase. All 12 examples have already been sold.
