It's not a 'Blower'. What you mistake for the supercharger is in fact the generator. RX 6180 is a 1930 6 1/2 Litre. The car still exists, albeit it was in a sad state when I saw it last about four years ago. How anybody can let a valuable car with this pedigree deteriorate is beyond me.

..Thanks.! ;) ... some people just have too much money...and can't be bothered with great things they own.! (..like everything nowadays ..it's all disposable ...Not something too be treasured and looked after anymore.)

And for the background,
Junkman wrote The marvellous Tudor Mansion is the Corus Hotel in Elstree, just a stone throw away from the Borehamwood studios. I'm often touring Avengerland in order to spot all the filming locations they used around there.

As with all Bentley sports cars of that era they came in different wheelbases. The smallest where about the same as a 3 or 5.5 litre model the largest where about 0.5m longer something like 4m.

I think it was Ettore Bugatti who called these Bentleys 'the fastest trucks in the world'...

Currently for sale, (Dec 2016) asking price £1,150,000.

No doubt, with the impending total destruction of the British economy, it should be possible for one of the newly enriched Europeans to trade in an old Maybach or similar, and buy this with small change. As the current owner of a Bentley of lower value (very) I await developments with interest.
