1953 Bentley Special Blue Train Recreation VIN: B480SR Most authentic recreation of Bentleys Speed 6 Blue Train Special Limited edition production celebrating the famous race over 80 years ago Driven only 1,216 miles since completion Hand built using only the finest materials to recreate a racing icon Coachwork made from a combination of ash timber framing and hand-formed aluminum Bentley straight-8 engine with 180 horsepower Based on design and body by J. Gurney Nutting coachworks Bentley is known far and wide as one of the longest-running automotive manufacturers still in existence and operating to this day. During those 100 years of automobiles, many legends have been born and racing drivers created by the historic marque, but some are more legendary than others. One of the most famous stories of them all is the Bentley Special Blue Train and its driver Woolf Barnato, racing a steam engine across the French countryside in toiling weather conditions. That 1930 car and race inspired a limited line of authentic and exacting recreations almost 80 years later, built by European craftsman Racing Green Engineering. Created to exacting standards to ensure that even the smallest details are correct, the result is the exact recreation of a legendary Bentley that you can own and drive. Woolf Barnato was a well-known playboy millionaire, heir to a South African diamond and gold mine, an international sportsman, and one of the original Bentley Boys. He became chairman of Bentley Motors and won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in both 1928 and 1929. The story of the Blue Train car is from the famous French express train, which Barnato wagered to his friends that he could beat the train from Cannes all the way to Calais, the opposite side of France. Knowing that Barnato was exceptional behind the wheel, none took the bet but Barnato went ahead with the challenge anyway. With his friend in tow for relief driving, both the Bentley and train left at 5:45pm destined for Calais. Braving dirt roads, caught in downpouring rain, and finding the pre-arranged fuel pit spots in the night wasnt enough to stop them, driving a total of 570 miles in the night. They reached Calais at 10:30am and decided to continue onto London by getting on a ferry and crossing the English Channel. Barnato and his friend parked his Speed Six outside of the Conservative Club in St. James Street at 3:20pm after the grueling 700-mile journey. Just four minutes later, the Blue Train arrived at the station in Calais. This astounding story has left an impact on racers and automobile fanatics alike, but maybe not as much as it did with Racing Green Engineering from the U.K. in Carmarthenshire. Restoring cars for over 40 years and excellent at their craft, they decided to create the perfect authentic recreation of the famous Blue Train Bentley. This limited production and limited edition began with its first completed car in 2007 which was invited to be seen for the first time at Goodwood in the U.K. Nothing is left to question during one of their fantastically detailed builds, ensuring that when you step into one of their recreations it feels as if youre sitting in the real bona fide Blue Train special. Built around a Bentley MK VI chassis and running gear with an 8-cylinder B80 or B81 Bentley engine, its as good as it gets. The bodywork is a unique mix of ash timber framing and hand-crafted aluminum panels, with the interior lined with the finest Connolly leather for the seats and polished walnut on the doors and dashboard. They even go to the great lengths of having cocktail cabinets containing pressed crystal glasses for if youre out at an event and the occasion calls for a special drink. Sitting inside this carefully crafted Bentley is one of the closest ways to experience the sensation like youve been transported back in time to almost a century ago. Finished in 2018, Racing Green Engineering crafted this example with tobacco brown Connol
