Comments From Vintage Bentley
The mainstay of Vintage Bentley production, these 3 litre models were the genesis of the Bentley legend and proved themselves at the highest level in competition. Many of these early chassis have been subsequently converted to 4.5 litre for performance reasons, although a rebuilt replacement 3 litre engine of today can produce significantly more power than they did in period. Up until 1924 the cars had rear brakes only, although once again, many cars today have been changed to 4 wheel braking for performance and safety reasons, for use on modern roads. The short chassis models handle with alacrity, but we can make any 3 litre model perform to a high level!
Our founder has been a long term owner of the first of the 18 Supersport models made for a long time - its a model for which we have a great affinity!
