TrueScale Miniatures Bentley 8 Litre 1930 - Green 1:18 Product Information

TrueScale Miniatures 1:18 resin model of the 1930 Bentley 8 Litre in green. Please note it has not yet been confirmed if this replica will come with opening parts.

The 8 Litre was the last car that W.O. Bentley designed for Bentley Motors. Launched in 1930, it was the largest and most luxurious Bentley of its time.

Unfortunately, its launch coincided with the worldwide depression caused by the Wall Street Crash. Demand for the car slowed (only eight were built) and the company encountered financial difficulties, leading to a change in ownership.

The output of the 8 Litre was between 200 and 230 bhp, which was exceptional for the era. Bentley guaranteed that the car could reach 100 mph, regardless of the style of coachwork that was placed atop the chassis.

TrueScale is replicating W.O.’s own personal example of the 8 Litre, which was the second car off of the production line. Registered GK 706, Bentley covered thousands of miles in it across Britain and Europe. Forced to sell it when the company was taken over in 1931, W.O. was later reunited with it at a Bentley Drivers’ Club celebration held in his honour. Many years after his death, Bentley Motors acquired chassis YF 5002. It has since become a symbolic company car for each subsequent Bentley CEO.
