Bentley Speed Six 6½ Litre

This is a car I spotted in the paddock at the SeeRed meeting organised by the VSCC at Donington Park in September 2006.
It's a 1929 Bentley Speed Six 6½ litre Grafton Coupe with coachwork by Freestone & Webb, and you can read about it on this Vintage Bentleys website. The Speed Six was a high performance version of the 6½ litre car and this Wikipedia article tells you about the model. Two of Bentley's five pre-war victories at the Le Mans 24 Hour race, in 1929 and 1930, were achieved by the Speed Six.
