Bentley Speed 8

Bentley Speed 8

Beautiful Bentley Speed 8 in exceptional condition.

 

Built by the world-famous “Vintage Green Engineering” in 2013, the donor car is a Bentley MKVI from 1952. The vehicle is constructed from its original components, all of which are over 45 years old. The car is fitted with an ash framed tourer body and often called a ‘Sports Saloon’ car.

The coachwork of the Speed 8 follows the construction of the original Le Mans cars with an ash frame panelled with aluminium and fabric. A new aluminium instrument panel is fitted incorporating high-quality reproductions of the original instruments. The interior is finished in Connelly leather and leather-bound carpets. The fold-flat windscreen has aero screens of the type that can be used in the normal scuttle position or as draught deflectors alongside the windscreen. It is fitted with hood tonneau cover and hood bag.
