    Bentley 4½ Litre Blower review - Telegraph

    I simply referred to a framed line drawing I have had on my wall since I was 10 years old. How he overtook the German ace at the end of the Mulsanne straight, on the grass at mph, throwing a tyre tread, but contemptuously keeping his foot in, is the stuff of legend. Rolls-Royce Ghosts old and new on trial.

    Bentley to go racing with Continental GT3. New Bentley and Lamborghini on show at Pageant of Power. That reputation is only reinforced at the first glance at this 1. The car was the subject of an Autocar magazine road test from 19 September , although back then it had a different body. First impressions are that although the replacement fabric-over-ash-frame body by Vanden Plas is minimal, the car looks enormous. Which, at 14ft, 4. Most of the visual bulk is at the front, starting with the supercharger and tall radiator, so the impression is of a muscle-bound bulldog.

    Green leather bucket seats are plumply upholstered and surprisingly comfortable. The enormous handbrake is outside the body and the four-speed gear lever is inside on the right. Thankfully the throttle pedal has been converted from the centre to the right. At the wheel of the Blower you are gradually transformed into a character from those famous Russell Brockbank cartoons and find yourself pondering the advisability of a moustache and, perhaps, a pipe.

    The dashboard is splattered with Jaeger and Smiths instruments including a chronometric revcounter that scurries up and down the scale like a frightened bird. Starting involves groping under the dashboard for the electrical master switch, pulling on a Bakelite fuel switch, tugging on the brass magneto switches and the ignition quadrant, then thumbing the big black starter.

    At idle, the engine sounds like chestnuts popping in the oven. I never got from second to third completely, but experience breeds confidence and the clutch is light and positive.

    The big four-pot blows a raspberry so rude it could come from a strip-club band. Where the Speed Six is refined power, the Blower is a brash hot rod. At speed on one section we reached an indicated 85mph. With about bhp the race cars had bigger SU carburettors and produced up to bhp performance is brisk, but must have been unbelievable in The nose surges forward in any gear and the big monobloc engine gains revs quite quickly and will rev as high as 3,rpm.

    We got about While the engine is smoke-free, the Bentley leaves a trail of hydrocarbons and fried petrol in its wake. As well as the gearbox, the steering dominates the experience. On the move it lightens and is surprisingly accurate.

    It still tests the shoulders of a Bentley Boy or Girl and you have to be quick and accurate turning in before the suspension loads build and the chassis twists. After that you can only tug more lock on, which lifts you completely out of the seat like a parson sitting on a drawing pin. The all-round drum brakes are unexpectedly powerful and largely fade-free, even over the infamous Futa Pass, and although you can usually get the Bentley stopped, at speed avoiding action is sometimes required to complement the brakes.

    While the Blower Bentley has a brutish reputation, it is far from it. Eau de Bentley is an exclusive and well-nigh irresistible scent. This test is dedicated to Ian Moss, a great Yorkshireman and motor engineer, who died recently. Four-speed gearbox, rear-wheel drive. So wonderful, then, that it lives up to the legend in every way and is one of the most memorable cars I have ever driven.
