A couple of intriguing replicas that have been announced in recent months that definitely aren’t going to be available in kit form come from Bentley Motors.

The luxury maker has announced twelve continuation versions of their Bentley Mulliner Blower Continuation and also the Bentley Mulliner Speed Six Continuation.

The Blower Series is a replica of the 4½-litre supercharged leviathan from 1929 with a version of the original four-cylinder Amherst Villiers Mk IV roots-type blower helping the engine to deliver 240bhp.

The car is based on an as-original pressed steel frame with half-elliptic leaf springs, copy Bentley Draper dampers and copy Bentley Perrot 40cm mechanical brake drums.

The second replica from Bentley is the 6½-litre Speed Six, the most successful racing Bentley that won Le Mans in 1929 and 1930. This one has a straight-six engine delivering around 200bhp good enough to take the Speed Six to a 125mph top speed.

Bentley says that the cars are the world’s first pre-war continuations and will source some parts from ‘heritage specialists’ around the UK.

Prices begin at £1.5m but I do believe all 24 cars are sold.
