1931 Bentley 8-Litre Special

The Bentley 8-Litre, an advancement of the successful Speed Six, was a remarkable accomplishment for the Cricklewood-based car manufacturer. This sophisticated six-cylinder car embodied the vision of company founder W.O. Bentley, who aimed to combine high-performance racing and exclusive luxury.

Nevertheless, producing the 8-Litre came with significant expenses for both potential buyers and the automaker itself, and after Rolls-Royce acquired Bentley, production was discontinued, with only 100 chassis ever manufactured.
