“The car is truly one of the great racing Bentleys and is part of this marque’s unique association with France and motor racing”

Bentley Motors have announced that one of their most famous cars, the 3 Litre, 1924 Bentley Le Mans winner with John Duff and Frank Clement at the wheel will be headling the company’s presence at the prestigious Rétromobile exhibition next month in Paris.

 

Celebrating the 90th anniversary of its Le Mans victory, the unique car was the first overseas winner of the world’s greatest endurance race and started a period of domination for Bentley in the 1920s. It helped to establish the company’s reputation for creating cars combining high‑performance with outstanding levels of durability.

“This is a wonderful car to lead our presence at Rétromobile in Paris and we are particularly grateful to the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) and Musée Automobile de la Sarthe for their kind support. The car is truly one of the great racing Bentleys and is part of this marque’s unique association with France and motor racing.”Richard Charlesworth, Head of the Bentley Heritage Collection
