When Rolls-Royce took over the Bentley factory, Bentley was already making this Roadster model with a 3.25 litre engine. In 1936 the new Rolls-Royce management decided to install a more powerful 4.25 litre engine in the same model. The engine was so quiet and smooth that it earned the epithet – silent sports car. Since most of the buyers of such expensive cars had tailor-made requirements, most were sold to coachbuilders such as Gurney Nutting and Mulliner Park Ward.
One of the current owner's of the model decides to revamp the original car and asks the modification specialist Doug Chalmers to strip the car of her original Gurney Nutting built-body and build a new body frame. The teardrop shape design is given by Bill Gathings. Chalmers drapes an aluminium body over it and what comes out finally is a car with completely new design and craftsmanship, both inside and outside. There was so much work that went into this car that it took 8 years to build it.
Since then, this car has been winning awards every year in all major vintage car shows.
