Bentley (3 - 4 ½)

The chassis of this classic 1924 Bentley sports car is that of the 3 liter Bentley built between 1921 and 1929. To give the car more performance the original engine was later replaced by the engine of the 4 ½ liter Bentley built from 1927 on, since the output of the 3 liter engine could not be enhanced very much.

Such modifications were quite common in the 1920s. With the racing versions of its 3 liter and 4 ½ liter sports cars Bentley achieved numerous racing victories, amongst them three titles at the 24 Hours of Le Mans (1924, 1927 and 1928).
