Tourer
Coachwork: Vanden Plas
Chassis #: LM1342
Sold for $862,214 (€701,500) at 2018 Bonhams : Les Grandes Marques du Monde au Grand Palais.
W.O. Bentley unveiled the 3 Litre car bearing his name on Stand 126 at the 1919 Olympia Motor Exhibition, only a few weeks after the very first prototype engine was fired up for the first time. Bentley's now famous 4-cylinder engine was fitted in a pressed-steel chassis of 9 feet, 9.5 inches for the Speed Model, which was later enlarged to 10 feet, 10 inches on the Standard Long chassis in 1923.

This 3 Litre Speed Model was assembled in October 1926 toward the end of the 3 Litre production and shortly before the introduction of the new 4.5 Litre model. The body is a standard Vanden Plas four-seater sports tourer with full-length valanced winds, and its low windscreen gives the car a very sporting profile. This Bentley has just been restored in England with all its original numbered parts and its original Vanden Plas body.
