WO Bentley had launched his first model, the four-cylinder 3 Litre, in 1921, as a sporting car for the discerning driver, intending that it should provide 80mph performance, with exceptional reliability founded on the quality of its engineering and construction. All cars even came with a five-year guarantee. It quickly became the favourite of wealthy young sportsmen and, to prove a point, 3-litres won at Le Mans in 1924 and 1927. This book looks in detail at Bentley’s 1925 creation, the six-cylinder 61/2-litre, the 1928 Speed Six version and the 1931 supercar, the enormous, handsome and expensive 8-litre – one of motoring’s immortal legends. Outstanding examples of all the models have been photographed specially for this book and are featured in detail in some 150 colour shots. There are also more than 150 black-and-white photographs drawn from archive sources.
