Tourer
Coachwork: Vanden Plas
This speed Six Bentley was originally delivered to Bertie Kensington-Moir with the standard long-distance body built by Vanden Plas. It has the spare wheel partially recessed into the tail in a similar fashion to the bobbed tail design first seen on the LeMans 4.5 Liter Bentley in 1928. The standard Bentley 6.5-Litre and the high-performance Bentley Speed Six were in production from 1926 to 1930. They were designed by W.O Bentley to offer more power. This was accomplished by adding two cylinders to the engine used in the 4.5-Liter car. The Speed Six, introduced in 1928, was the most successful racing Bentley at LeMans and at other sports car races.
