This Bentley Racing Special is a recreation of the race cars created in the early and mid 30’s. This Bentley Special 3/8 Racer is a Bentley for everyday use, rallies, or a blast around the track, easy to drive and great fun.
The heart of this unique classic is the 8 cylinder B series engine, often maligned as commercial engines but married to 4 SU carburettors and the 8 pipes exiting the bonnet in a Spitfire-esque manner brings out the potency of this power plant. The noise is like music to the driver, and once the right foot is to the floor, the Bentley disappears down the road in a cloud of black rubber smoke.
