The Bentley 8 Litre was announced in 1930 to succeed to the 6.5 Litre model. The 8 Litre was based on the largest rolling chassis made by the British manufacturer and was the last model to be made before Bentley’s acquisition by Rolls Royce. Only 100 units of the Bentley 8 Litre were made and sales weren’t sufficient to turn the company’s finances around during the tough period of the Great Depression. The engine was a straight-six, 8-liter unit that was coupled to a four-speed gearbox. The chassis and body were isolated from vibration with the use of three rubber points. Long semi-elliptic leaf springs were used for suspension, with double acting dampers, and servo-assisted drum brakes were fitted on all four wheels.
The number of Bentley 8 Litre models available for sale nowadays is very low and finding a model that matches your requirements can be a real challenge.
