This is the first Bentley to race at Le Mans. In fact, it raced at the very first Le Mans, held in 1923. The thought of this 24-hour endurance race did not appeal to W.O. Bentley initially; he though it was a bit crazy. Nonetheless, London Bentley agent John Duff, who had raced successfully with this 3 Litre at Brooklands, had it prepared for LeMans. Frank Clement, a works driver, was seconded to this private team to co-drive with Duff, and in the end W.O. joined the team to run the pits. The car finished in fourth place overall, beginning the legend at Bentley at Le Mans and bringing fame if not fortune to Bentley Motors.

This car was discovered in Scotland with a modified body and has since been returned to its original condition.
