1930 Bentley "Blue Train" Re-creation

1930 Bentley Blue Train Recreation II

The Blue Train Recreation was modeled after the Gurney Nutting Coupe and built to exacting standards by a coachbuilding firm in the UK and the series has been a success as there is a three to five year waiting list for those looking to acquire their own Bentley. This car was built on a 1950 Bentley Mark VI chassis and completed in October 2014.

The car is equipped with a Bentley B80 inline eight-cylinder engine that features four SU carburetors, and generates 180 horsepower. The rear trunk features a full tool kit in a fold-down tray and the beautifully crafted interior features matching liquor cabinets, with each containing a decanter and a set of crystal glasses that have been engraved with the Bentley “B,” to provide touring comfort for passengers. The cabinets are finished in highly polished walnut, as is the dash cowl and the tops of the doors. Beautiful red leather completes the interior, along with matching red carpeting.
