BENTLEY 4½-LITRE SUPERCHARGED

Tourer, numerous specials.

Opinions strongly divided on this one, but scarcity plus glamour sends prices through the roof. Blower and single SU carburettor outdoors between the dumb irons, double André shockers at front and rear, and on 175bhp the ton should be possible with any body. Too noisy for saloon coachwork, while expect 10mpg as against 16 for the normally aspirated engine - as if anyone cared.
