1931 Bentley 4 Litre For Sale

Chassis No. VA 4100 was the last 4-litre chassis built by Bentley Motors and possibly the last WO Bentley built by the old company. A total of 50 4 Litre Bentleys were produced and this is one of the 39 short chassis cars produced.

The car carries its original coachwork built by Freestone & Webb Ltd and is a highly attractive 3 position DHC. VA 4100 is in outstanding original condition and is a car for the connoisseur.

The 4 Litre was introduced as a last ditched attempt to save the old Bentley company and was a rationalisation of the existing 6 cylinder cars. The new model had a 6 cylinder engine of 4 Litre capacity with a cylinder head designed by Ricardo. It shared the shorter 8-litre Bentley chassis and was not well received among the Bentley traditionalists.

Personally, having limited experience with 4 Litre Bentleys, I was very pleasantly surprised by the car’s performance, which is comparable to a Derby 3½ Litre Bentley but with the added pleasure of a vintage Bentley exhaust notes.

This is an exciting opportunity to acquire a highly original, attractive and significant WO Bentley at a fraction of the price of its 8 Litre relative.
