The Bentley 4 Liter was introduced on May 15, 1931 to compete with the successful Rolls-Royce 20/25 models. Equipped with a Ricardo-designed 120 hp six-cylinder engine and a four-speed transmission in what was basically a shortened and modified 8 Liter chassis, the 4 Liter provided many W.O. Bentley virtues in an altogether lighter and more economical package than the big 6½ and 8 Liter cars. Only 50 of this pretty model were made, as Bentley was put into liquidation a few months after its introduction. Only 12 are believed to exist today as quite a few 4 Liter chassis have been converted to 6½ or 8 Liter specification and encumbered with replica Le Mans bodies. Fitted with its charming and original Vanden Plas convertible body, VF4019 presents a very rare opportunity for the informed W.O. Bentley connoisseur to complete his collection with what is very likely the best of the very few remaining 4 Liter cars.
