Description

In the late 1930s, Bentley Motors produced high-performance touring cars for owners who wanted to explore the roads of continental Europe. Cars left the factory primarily as chassis, and the leading coachbuilders of the time vied for some of the most elegant bodies ever.

This example is based on one of the lesser-known coachbuilders, who at the time produced a unique body for a European owner for use on the Alpine trails of the late 30s. This is where the Racing Green Alpine label comes from. Its sporty silhouette cleverly hides the hidden hood behind the front seats.

Optimized through the use of the 8-cylinder in-line B-series engine with 6516 cc and the robust Bentley MK6 chassis, it enables today's driver to travel effortlessly, even over long distances

4 SU Type H.6 carburettors. Selectable engine driven mechanical or twin electric fuel pumps.

Clutch: Single dry plate, heavy duty or lightweight diaphragm.

Transmission: Bentley Four speed and reverse. 

Suspension: Upgraded front and rear road springs
