Originally developed by pilot Tim Birkin, the Bentley Blower made its debut in the 1930 24 Hours of Le Mans as a privateer entry. 90 years later, Bentley is making a run of 12 Bentley Blowers, handbuilt from the original plans, tools, and jigs, along with laser scans of each part from the original car. After over 40,000 man-hours of labor, the prototype Blower is complete and ready to serve as the testbed for the 12 customer cars to follow. Over 1,846 parts are handcrafted, with some parts like the leaf springs and headlamps made by small British firms. All 12 Bentley Blower continuations are already spoken for, with plans for more continuation cars expected from Bentley's Mulliner Classic division.
