This beautiful example was created in 1936 by combining the chassis of a 1927 standard wheelbase Weymann fabric saloon by Gurney Nutting, shortened wheelbase, with the engine from a 1930 Speed Six saloon. Apart from the shortened wheelbase and Speed six engine, the changes to the Bentley included lowering the radiator and bonnet, 18-inch front wheels and a 3:1 final drive ratio. The car has proved to be perfectly stable at over 100mph and the burst to 120-plus leaves a good deal of pedal to the imagination. Markham of Reading, England built the light sporty two-seater body.
This car was offered for sale at the 2007 Blackhawk Collection Exhibit held in Pebble Beach where it carried a price tag of $1,100,000.
