Introduced in 1930 at the London Olympia Motor Show, the Bentley 8 Litre was produced until 1932 in only 100 units. The Great Depression and the financial difficulties of Bentley lead to Rolls-Royce acquisition and the Bentley 8 Litre was the last model built completely by Bentley. The chassis used on the 8 Litre model was the largest made by the manufacturer and used semi-elliptic leaf springs controlled by double acting dampers for the suspension. Two lengths of wheelbase were available: either 144 or 156 in, with three rare units built on a 138-in wheelbase. The engine was a SOHC, 8-liter, straight-six unit with four valves per cylinder and twin-spark ignition. The unit was connected to a four-speed gearbox and both were well isolated from the chassis using rubber to avoid vibration.
