Bentley Six-Cylinder Models in Detail
Bentley Six-Cylinder Models in Detail: 6 1/2-Litre, Speed Six, 8-Litre & 4-Litre, 1926-31 WO Bentley had launched his first model, the four-cylinder 3 Litre, in 1921, as a sporting car for the discerning driver, intending that it should provide 80mph performance, with exceptional reliability founded on the quality of its engineering and construction.
All cars even came with a five-year guarantee. It quickly became the favourite of wealthy young sportsmen and, to prove a point, 3-litres won at Le Mans in 1924 and 1927.
This book looks in detail at Bentley's 1925 creation, the six-cylinder 61/2-litre, the 1928 Speed Six version and the 1931 supercar, the enormous, handsome and expensive 8-litre - one of motoring's immortal legends. Outstanding examples of all the models have been photographed specially for this book and are featured in detail in some 150 colour shots.
