Bentley 4.5 litre Supercharged. Early Bentley outside a cottage; the driver wears gloves and goggles. WO Bentley built his first sports car, a 3 litre, in 1919. The successor to this early model was the 4.5 litre, which appeared initially in un-supercharged form. The supercharged version did, however, make a fine road car, though it did not have particularly successful competition record, even though its un-blown sisters had won the Le Mans 24 Hour Race in 1924, 1927, 1928 and 1929.
