Bentley Speed Six
The Bentley 6 ½ Litre and the high-performance variant Bentley Speed â€‹â€‹Six were Bentley car models of the manufacturer. They were formed 1926-1930 from those offered by Bentley chassis and body structures of different Stellmacher businesses.
Since the constructions given by the customers in order were getting bigger, the engine of the 3-liter model came to its limits. The 6 ½ Litre should meet these requirements. In this model, there was a 6 ½-liter six-cylinder, with OHC valve timing and four valves and two spark plugs per cylinder.
The sports version with higher compression and twin SU carburettors was called Speed â€‹â€‹Six. 1929 and 1930 was obtained with the Speed â€‹â€‹Six version of the 6 ½ Litre Le Mans. The vehicle was very successful in racing, but did not produce the expected sales figures, which is why Bentley had to extend the model range to the 4 ½ Litre.
The annual production of the 6 ½ Litre was between 90 and 150 The sales slump in 1931 was dramatic – only three chassis were delivered within six months. The 6 ½ Litre was available in seven different chassis variants, with a total of 544 chassis were produced.
