The Le Mans Eight is built on a Bentley Mark Six chassis, utilising its original running gear to ensure that the balance and integrity of this fine chassis is not compromised. As the Le Mans Eight uses a Bentley chassis, with Bentley running gear, it comes with its original registration number and that all important ´Bentley´ name on the registration document. The engine is a rebuilt straight eight Rolls Royce/ Bentley, slightly modified, breathing through four period SU carburettors. The ash framed, aluminium panelled body, constructed to the dimensions and proportions of the original coachwork, is covered in the traditional green leather cloth and complimented by green leather upholstery. Weather protection is provided by a double-duck hood and full-length tonneau. Period instrumentation, set into a machine turned aluminium dashboard completes the nostalgic feel of the interior. The Le Mans Eight combines original Bentley parts with modern day recreations based on period materials, original plans and traditional skills and craftsmanship to create a car of elegance, nostalgia and driveability. Driveability tested to the limit ! One of the Le Mans Eights has successfully competed in the Peking to Paris Motor Challenge 2007 finishing 1st in Class. 12,500 kilometres, many of them on unmade roads, in just 35 days, completed without difficulty, says much about the reliability and strength of the cars. 8Cyl, 5600cc
