The Original 6½-Litre Bentley racing cars were said to be W.O.'s favourite of all the cars to ware the Bentley name. These fantastic automobiles established themselves as the iconic racing car of the early '30s.

The interior is nicely appointed with an aluminium instrument panel fitted with high-quality reproductions of the original instruments, including Connelly leather and high-quality woven carpets.
