This Four Seater Sports is one of the 25 Supercharged 4.5 Litre Bentleys from the second MS chassis series built in 1931, toward the end of Bentley Motors production and just before W.O. Bentley was forced to sell his company to his arch-rival, Rolls-Royce. This car, with its iconic ribbed-case supercharger hidden beneath its hand-formed steel cover, is a very rare, all-numbers-matching, original-bodied Bentley. The car has a unique sports tourer body by Vanden Plas, complete with an unusual hammered copper and black oxidized dashboard, and it retains the original Paxton inflatable cushions covering the passenger seats. It was acquired by its current owner in 2018 after it had received a detailed conservation and restoration that returned the car to its former glory.
