Launched in 1925, the six-cylinder 6 1/2 litre Bentley was intended to compete with the Rolls-Royce Phantom in the fast luxury car market. The Speed Six version won at Le Mans in 1929 and 1930 and the series culminated in the 8 litre, 100 mph version of 1930, but by this time the company was facing financial difficulties.
