Bentley was born racing, and while most of its 100+ years have been spent away from the track, the company is going back with one of the 1929 Bentley Blower Continuation Cars it has built. The car, created using blueprints and 3D scans of an original car in Bentley’s Heritage Collection, will compete at three major historic automobile races through September. Bentley is also celebrating the 20th anniversary of its sixth and final victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with a limited-edition series of 48 “Le Mans Collection” Continental GT and GTC models.
In the past two decades, RM Sotheby’s has sold thousands of collectible cars alongside the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. This year, the old-timer is bringing a 10-car collection of “youngtimers”: the budding classics of the 80s, 90s, and early noughties.
