The inspiration for this build is the Blower Bentleys of the early 1930's. One of the most iconic car of the pre-war racers. The Blower Bentley was developed to replace the Bentley six, a huge and heavy car which Ettore Bugatti once famously referred to as "the world's fastest lorry"

The addition of the blower to the 130hp 4 1/2 litre engine, increased power to a massive 240hp, easily besting the power made from the Six but with a fraction of the weight. But whilst the power was formidable, it came at the cost of reliability. Bentley’s Racing Manager, Nobby Clarke once said: “The Blower eats plugs like a donkey eats hay”.

AC/DC singer and car enthusiast Brian Johnson cited the 4½ Litre Le Mans as the best car he'd driven: "The first time I saw it, everything went north on us, except me jaw – that went south. I just had to have it. That car, I think, is a masterpiece… It was ludicrously expensive – I mean, just crackers."
