1930 4.5-Litre Bentley

This 1930 Bentley is a classic example of the winning cars of Le Mans from 1927 to 1930. Needing a little extra speed because of their large bodies, Bentley put 4.5-litre engines under the hood. Later, they increased the power even more with the "Blower" Bentleys, but these were the cars which were most race worthy.
These cars dominated the race track for a number of years. This car has a lot of race history through the 1930s and is currently available at Fiskens.
