4/8 Litre Blower Bentley


GX9, being one of the last genuine Bentleys built, left the factory in March 1932 with a Vanden Plas Drop Head Coupe Body.
The car was falling into disrepair in the 1970s, then in the 1990s was acquired by an eminent overseas collector, who embarked on a major restoration including the installation of an 8 litre engine, and remodelling the car based on the legendary Bentley Old No.1, in her final guise as a Brooklands outer circuit racer. The current owner has further enhanced the car, both cosmetically and mechanically, vastly improving the performance by the addition of an original pattern Amherst Villiers Rootes style Blower unit (as fitted to the Birkin Blowers).
In her current form, she makes a perfect long range tourer and as the pictures confirm she has a remarkable presence, a truly stunning vintage sports car.
