BENTLEY 3½-LITRE

Tourer, saloon, drophead coupé, numerous specials.

Rolls-Royce's 'Silent Sports Car', though not truly badge-engineered: compared with a 20/25 you've got a shorter chassis, twin carburettors, single coil ignition, and a hypoid rear end before the 'Royce got one, plus such R-R bonuses as the lovely synchromesh 'box and servo brakes. Doesn't like revs, and decayed specimens can be horrible.
