Vintage Bentley are delighted to confirm their Bentley SuperSports #9 will feature in our Concour de Vente. One of the rarest and revered Bentley models, the 100 mph SuperSports was the first Bentley to wear a green badge, the coveted ‘Green Label’. The short wheel base 9 foot chassis bestowed upon the car an agility which is unmatched by any other Bentley model and the high compression 3 litre engine, fed by twin “Sloper” carburettors resulted in the factory providing a guarantee of 100 mph for the SuperSports chassis at Brooklands. This ground breaking performance for the era, gave rise to what could be regarded as one of, if not the first “Super Car” in history.
Also entered into the Concours de Vente is the Ex Woolf Barnato former Brooklands outright outer circuit record holding car and all time best Class B lap record holder at Brooklands driven by Oliver Bertram at 142.6 mph. Built for the Ex-Chairman of Bentley Motors, Woolf Barnato, by the legendary brilliant Bentley Engineer Wally Hassan, this racer’s sole purpose was to take the fastest outer circuit lap record at Brooklands. Developed and raced from 1934 till 1938, the Barnato Hassan Bentley competed in 25 races and broke the circuit record several times, ultimately with an unofficial lap of 143.11 mph in September 1938, before moving into storage for the War. The car retains its original chassis and 8 litre engine and also comes with its later 2 seat body.
