1930 Bentley 4.5 Liter Supercharged Drophead Coupe

  • Coachwork by Gurney Nutting
  • Chassis Number: SM3909
  • Engine Number: SM3910
  • Registration Number: GK 6661
This 4.5 Litre Supercharged Bentley, with drophead coupe coachwork by Gurney Nutting, was built for Bentley Motors Chairman Woolf Barnato. Barnato was part of the social set of wealthy British motorists known as the 'Bentley Boys'; his fortune came from his family's diamond and gold mining interests. He acquired his first Bentley in 1925 and a year later agreed to finance W.O. Bentley's entire company. Winning at Le Mans three time and in numerous races at Brooklands made him a significant personality at Bentley Motors, and he was directly responsible for persuading W.O. to build the supercharged cars.

The design of this drophead coupe body is typical of Barnato's taste for extravagant sporty motorcars. With its boattail back end and flowing fenders it would have looked rather stunning sitting next to his other Gurney Nutting bodied car, the famous 'Blue Train' Bentley Speed Six.
