Bentley: three Show Cars in preparation for Salon Privé – Motorlegend.com

Bentley Mulliner will be present at Blenheim Castle, in Great Britain, from September 22 to 26, to present as part of the 2020 edition of Salon Privé, three Show Cars of its design.

The personalization and special models department of Bentley Motors has in fact prepared a new model from the Mulliner collection, a copy of the Bentley Mulliner Bacalar which will be the great public debut, and finally a restoration work carried out on one of the most important Bentley models in the brand's history.

The Bentley Mulliner Classic division, which exhibited at Salon Privé in 2019, a Bentley Corniche from 1939 restored by itself, will first present the first Bentley Blower chassis produced by the British brand for 90 years. This chassis is one of twelve examples of the supercharged 4.5-liter Team Blower, which Mulliner Classic will assemble in order to revive this historic model: four examples of the 4.5-liter Team Blower were indeed built in 1929 by the team of pilot Tim Birkin. , and the model marked the history of the British manufacturer by participating in particular in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The Bentley Mulliner Bacalar, an exclusive two-door convertible coupe offered in just twelve units by the manufacturer of Crewe, will also be present at Salon Privé where it will make its grand debut alongside a never-before-seen example of the Continental GT Mulliner Cabriolet, presented on to him by Bentley Mulliner Collections.

The Bentley Heritage collection will complete this beautiful chainring with an 8.0 liter Bentley from 1930 with a body made by HJ Mulliner, which belonged to W.O. Bentley in person, and with a 1952 Continental Type R still considered by many today to be one of the finest automobiles of all time. Fans of Crewe's productions should appreciate.
