Bentley "Blower" Giclée Art Print
The Bentley Blower is a classic racing car, unveiled at the British International Motor Show in 1929. A one-of-a-kind, the Blower was nicknamed the 'Brooklands Battleship' after a famous incident in which Sir Tim Birkin continued to race the car after it had caught fire during a race at Brooklands in 1929. The Blower appeared at a series of performance motorsport events, including the French Grand Prix in 1930, and set the Brooklands track record in 1932.
The car has changed hands several times since Birkin's death in 1933, most recently in 2012 when it was sold for more than £5 million at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
