Bentley 3/8 Racer Special, year chassis 1948. Chassis number B269CX, engine number B385X. This impressive Bentley Special was hand built by Racing Green Engineering of South Wales U.K. and completed in 2013. Colour cream white with burgundy striping and wheels, and a black chassis. Interior with black rubber floor trim and bucket seats clad with burgundy leather upholstery. This spectacular machine is based on a 1948 Bentley Mk VI chassis which was fully restored and strengthened to take the also fully rebuilt Bentley B81 6516 cc straight-eight engine and the four-speed (fully synchronised) manual Bentley gearbox. The bodywork is a masterpiece of craftmanship. The design was inspired by the lines and details of vintage racing cars and masterly made by the craftsmen of Racing Green Engineering. The build and finish of this machine are of the finest quality you will find in the vintage car industry. This Bentley is a superb and like new condition and the automobile has driven 2800 kilometres since completion. The driving experience moves all your senses; the big eight cylinder in-line engine pulls like a locomotive and the exhaust note resembles an angry thunderstorm. The elevated view around, and the view over the mighty bonnet and front wings makes one feel like a fighter plane pilot on the road. This Racing Green Engineering Bentley Special drives, shifts, brakes, and handles extremely well and easily for such a big, heavy, and powerful machine. The automobile also incorporates some practical features; the interior offers plenty of room for driver and co-driver, and a large boot which can be accessed from behind the seats. This Bentley Special comes with a complete history. The automobile is registered in the EU and can be exported to and registered in any country worldwide.
