Sports Continuation

Specifications & Information

In 1924, Woolf Barnato shortened and lightened W.O. Bentley's iconic 3 Litre to form the ultimate Bentley racer - the Super Sports. Its world-beating performance didn't go unnoticed and resulted in 18 Super Sports orders in 1925, with every one guaranteed to reach 100mph. The ultra short chassis and a lightweight body which was a key factor in the model reaching the "ton". The distinctively styled Green Label radiator, tapered at the base, is an emblem for one of the most exciting Vintage Bentley driving experiences and today the cars are highly sought after, with commensurate high values.

We know the cars well, our founder has been a long term owner of chassis number one and our expertise in the model is unrivalled. Predictably demand outstrips supply for this wonderful competition car and therefore after a thorough development process we decided to create an accurate continuation of the series. Continuing from the original production series we are now up to chassis 25.

Chassis length:

  • 9'00" with one of the 18 made to 9'9.5"

Our Super Sports Continuation delivers driving performance second to none with an incredible power-to-weight ratio, superb handling, amazing braking and stunning good looks. Our continuation series models are more or less indistiguishable from the original cars and have proved themselves as the ultimate Bentley competition car.
