High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Bentley Hunaudières is a concept car built by Bentley for the 1999 Geneva Salon International de l'Auto. It is powered by a Volkswagen 8.0-litre, naturally-aspirated, W16 engine that generates 623 brake horsepower (465 kW, 632 PS) of power at 6,000 revolutions per minute and 760 newton metres (560 ft lbf) of torque at 4,000 revolutions per minute in conjunction with a five-speed manual transmission. It is capable of a 350 kilometres per hour (220 mph) top speed. The Hunaudières' name pays homage to the famous straight of Circuit de la Sarthe where Sir Tim Birkin in a "Blower Bentley" overtook Rudolf Carraciola in a Mercedes-Benz SSK at 125 miles per hour (201 km/h) with one wheel on the grass down the Hunaudières straight.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Bentley 4 Litre is a British sports car built by Bentley Motors. Its supercharged variant is also known as the Blower Bentley. Famous for his statement "there's no replacement for displacement", Walter Owen Bentley upped the displacement of the Bentley 3 Litre in 1926 to produce the 4 Litre. Upon taking control of the company, the "Bentley Boys" went in search of even more power and developed the supercharged model in 1929 at Henry Birkin's racing workshops in Welwyn Garden City. The 4 Litre was an evolution of the 3 Litre, sharing that car's basic chassis, including its semi- elliptical suspension at all four wheels and four- wheel brakes. The straight-4 engine was bored out to 100 mm (3.9 in) to produce 4.4 L (4398 cc/268 in³) of displacement. This was good for 110 hp (82 kW) in road-going models or 130 hp (97 kW) when tweaked for racing. A 4 Litre Bentley raced at Le Mans in 1927 but crashed. Another claimed victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1928 with drivers Woolf Barnato and Bernard Rubin at the wheel.
