1925 Bentley 3 Litre Tourer

Courtesy of Bonhams
  • 2,996-cc, SOHC 4-cylinder engine with four valves per cylinder
  • Two SU “Sloper” carburetors
  • 70 bhp at 3,500 rpm
  • 4-speed close-ratio gearbox

Offered here is a very handsome, well-presented and highly usable Bentley.

The car is a proper matching-number example (with a most distinctive chassis number) and it is turned out with delightfully sporting coachwork.

Bentley 3-liter cars are wonderful drivers, with lightness and nimbleness not found in their bigger brothers. Today, Vintage Bentley (pre-1932) rallying is more popular than ever, with numerous excellent tours on both sides of the United States as well as internationally. This Bentley is a surprisingly low entry point into one of the best thoroughbred sports cars ever built.
