Sold for $350,146 (£223,260) at 2012 Bonhams - Collectors' Motor cars and Automobilia at Goodwood.
In 1923 W.O. Bentley built the 3 Litre TT Replica, later known as the Speed Model, on a shorter 9-foot, 9.5-inch chassis. With its distinctive Red Label radiator badge, the Speed Model was the first 3 Litre to be fitted with 4-wheel Perrot-type brakes, twin SU 'sloper' carburetors, a higher compression engine and the sporty close-ratio A-type gearbox. Bentley built approximately 1,600 3 Litres, the majority bodied by Vanden Plas.

This car, however, is a rarity; not only is it one of just 513 Speed Models built, it was fitted with a 2-seater sports body by Park Ward that it still retains today. The car was owned by a single family for over 30 years before being acquired by its current owner, who drove it on the 2019 Seattle to Pebble Beach Motoring Classic Tour.
