Bentley Boys’ Blowers take a grand tour

Bentley Boys’ Blowers take a grand tour
BENTLEY Motors is competing in this week’s Mille Miglia 2014 in Italy (May 15 to 18) with two of the company’s famous four-and-a-half litre supercharged “Blowers” taking on the 1,700km route.

The 1930 Le Mans “Team Car” once owned by Sir Henry “Tim” Birkin — one of the most celebrated members of a group of British gentlemen racers known as the Bentley Boys — will be joined by a former company demonstrator Blower with its original Vanden Plas open, sports four seater body for this renowned race.

Even after nine decades on the road, this second Blower continues to delight customers and guests from around the world with demonstration drives during visits to Bentley’s Crewe headquarters.

Both Bentleys have successfully completed the modern Mille Miglia challenge several times and, with their classic dark green livery and distinctive, rumbling exhaust note, they’re welcomed by the thousands of fans who line the route to support the drivers.
