In this iconic Speed Six Bentley Boy Woolf Barnato raced and beat the famous Train Bleu nothwards from the Côte d'Azur (Saint-Raphael) to Calais.
He not only arrived in Calais before the train, but he also arrived at his Conservative Club in London's St James before the train pulled into the French port
(Calais) ! The bet was won !
In celebration of Barnato's famous victory over 80 years ago, Racing Green Engineering has launched a limited edition of "Blue Train Car" recreations.
The low roofline and 2+1cockpit with a single "side-saddle" rear seat and the cocktail cabinet gives it a unique design !
It was cited by Bentley's design team as one of the inspiration for the modern-day Continental GT.
This marvellous recreation is built around a Bentley Mark VI chassis and running gear mated with an 8 cylinder B80 or B81 Bentley engine.
The bodywork is a mixture of ash timber framing and hand shaped aluminium panels. The sumptuous interior features Connolly Leather seats, polished walnut
on doors, dashboard and cocktail cabinets which contain cut glass decanters engraved with the Bentley "B".
