There are not a few car brands with a hundred years of history, such as BMW, Mercedes, Fiat and Ford, which we are familiar with. This year, the ultra-luxury brand Bentley will celebrate its 100th anniversary. To commemorate this special moment, Bentley will launch a special edition model inspired by the 24-hour endurance of the Blower 9 and will be the first show at the Geneva Motor Show, which opened on March 5 this year.
From the official Bentley pictures, the Bentley LOGO in the special edition has a number of 1919-2019, which symbolizes the 100-year history of the Bentley brand. At the same time, the center of the black mesh grille is printed with the number "9", which pays homage to the Blower 9 in the Le Mans 24 Hours.
Friends who are familiar with the Bentley brand may know that in the early part of the last century, Bentley had a brilliant record in the arena. In 1930, racers Sir Henry Birkin and Jean Chassagne drove the Bentley Blower 9 in the Le Mans competition, and the Blower 9 with the 4.4L supercharged engine became legendary.
