63. Bentley 4.5 litre

63. Bentley 4.5 litre

created by the founder of Bentley, Walter Owen Bentley. Bentley sought to produce a more powerful racecar by increasing engine displacement. At that time, noted car manufacturers like Bugatti and Lorraine-Dietrich focused on designing cars to compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, a popular automotive endurance course established only a few years earlier. A victory in this competition quickly elevated any car maker’s reputation.

A total of 720 4.5 litre were produced between 1927 and 1931, including 55 models with a supercharged engine known as the Blower Bentley. A 4.5 litre Bentley won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1928. Though the 4.5 litre Bentley’s competitive performance was not outstanding, it set several speed records, most famously in1932 at Brooklands with a recorded speed of 222 km (138 mph)
