Description

A beautifully constructed replica of the famous Bentley Speed Six by Gurney Nutting owned by Woolf Barnarto, known commonly as the Blue Train Bentley after the infamous race that took place between Cannes and Calais. It is built on an R Type Chassis (B247UL) with an ash frame and aluminium panels covered by wadding and rexine. It has a full length webasto sunroof and is completed with nickel plated bright work. The interior is beautifully trimmed in dark blue leather and is complete with a sideways facing rear seat and three cocktail cabinets. The spacious rear trunk contains a small tool kit on a drop down tray. It is a beautifully engineered and constructed motor car and tremendous fun to drive.
