Bentley rather discretely announced the arrival of its new 4.25-liter model. The subtle announcement was merely an attempt to appease customers who had already ordered the 3.5 Litre model and whose chassis were at the contracted coachbuilders. Other than the engine, all other chassis elements were duplicates of the 3.5 Litre cars, which was the first new Bentley following the acquisition of the firm by Rolls-Royce in 1931.

Essentially a tuned twin-carbureted version of Rolls-Royce's tried-and-true 25/30, the 4.25 Litre model was introduced in March of 1936 alongside its sister car at Rolls-Royce. A total of 1,235 examples were produced through about May of 1939.

This car was first owned by the Countess of Warwick. The body was ordered by the London Bentley agent Jack Barclay Limited as an exclusive design from Vanden Plas. After several more owners the car was brought to the United Sates in 1959. Its current owner bought the car in 1970. Since then it has been the subject of a continuous restoration effort to bring the car back to its original color and condition. Two Derby Bentleys were built with this body style, but there are some differences between them so this car is unique. One rare and unusual feature on this car is the single-winged flying B on the radiator cap, this was the original mascot design by Charles Skyes and it appeared on less than 100 Derby Bentleys.
