Bentley Speed Six ‘Blue Train’ (originally named Sportsman Coupe) got its name after the famous race, however, it wasn’t the model that actually raced the Blue Train. In 1930, Woolf Bernato took part in a Blue Train Race driving his Bentley Speed Six H.J. Mulliner formal saloon which proven to be much faster than its opponent. Two months after the race, he took delivery of a new Bentley Speed Six ‘Sportsman Coupe’ coachbuilt by Gurney Nutting. In memory of his race, Bernato named his new car the ‘Blue Train Special’ and since then, the car became commonly referred to as the ‘Blue Train Bentley’. Due to such name, the Gurney Nutting-bodied car is often mistaken for the one that raced the Blue Train.
