1929 Bentley 4.5 Litre / HB3402 Chassis Information

Offset Single Seater
Designer: Reid Railton
Chassis Num: HB3402
Sold for $7,906,745 (£5,041,500) at 2012 Bonhams.
Reid Railton designed this offset single seater for its owner, Bentley Boy Tim Birkin. The engine was modified to cope with the stress of the supercharger. This Blower Bentley recorded its first victory at its first race at Brooklands. The next target for Birkin was the Brooklands outer-circuit lap record, which he broke at 135.33 mph. Birkin then improved the car for the 1932 season and set a new record at 137.58 mph. The car retired from racing soon after. After the war, the car was fitted with a conventional two-seater body and was raced in club events. Fortunately the Monoposto body was preserved and was eventually refitted on the car.
