1929 Bentley 6½-Liter

Chassis number : KF2387

Share on:

Bentley Motors chairman and 'Bentley Boy' team driver Woolf Barnato was the instigator behind the sportier 6.5 Litre Speed Six model, which was a development of the already potent Standard 6.5 Litre. The new model boasted a host of upgrades, and its performance was above and beyond its sibling by quite some margin. This 2-seater Speed Six is one of just 12 open Speed Sixes left in the world with its original coachwork still intact. It has recently been carefully restored with new Rexine covering its body, and its original interior has been preserved. It was acquired by its current owner in 2018, and 2019 was its first visit to the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
