This striking tinplate vintage Blower Bentley model is finished in antiqued British Racing green, and is a replica of the supercharged Bentley built by Sir Henry ‘Tim’ Birkin, described as “the greatest British driver of his day”. One of the iconic ‘Bentley Boys’, Birkin, aided by a former Bentley mechanic, decided to produce a series of five supercharged models for the Le Mans 24 Hours Race, thus the 4½ litre Blower Bentley was born. The Bentley Blower No.1 was officially presented in 1929 at the British International Motor Show at Olympia, London, the first of 55 supercharged cars.
This lovely decorative Blower Bentley model features wheels that move slightly from left to right and rotate. All the other details are fixed.
