This car is one of the original 50 supercharged 4.5-Litre 'Blower' Bentleys. It is also one of just three Blowers built by Tim Birkin to LeMans specifications, with extended bonnet, external LeMans fuel tank, and team car instrument panel. The car was built for Billy Fiske, the Cresta Run Bob-sleigh Champion. Fiske was also the first American to join the British RAF in 1939 and he tragically lost his life flying a Hurricane during the Battle of Britain. While in his possession, this car lapped Brooklands' outer circuit at 121.4 mph. After Fiske, the car was in single ownership for 50 years before changing hands. It has recently undergone a complete restoration by Bentley expert Graham Moss, who reunited the car with its original engine and finished the body in the period-correct Rexine fabric.
