@ Fangio Man & Super8: Maybe someone ay Bentley could see into the future and built this car for his birthday. I think they should have waited until his 16th birthday, since that's the legal driving age in America. LOL :D BTW: 4 speed manual? I didn't even know they had 4 speed transmissions in 1931, most likely it's a column shift.

In 1930 Bentley launched a new model to take on Rolls Royce in the luxury market - the 8-Litre. In 2 years 100 units, short and long wheelbase, were built.
