The Bentley Blower originated when Bentley Boy Tim Birkin set out to convince Bentleys then chairman Woolf Barnato that supercharging, in combination with Bentleys distinguished reliability would allow them to produce winning results on the racing circuit, specifically in this case, Le Mans. Contradictory to Barnatos earlier objections to supercharging, he agreed to produce 55 examples of the Blower to homologate the new model for competition. Out of the 55 Blowers built, five were to be destined directly into Birkin family ownership.

Then, as now, the Bentley Blower represented one of the most pre-eminent British cars ever built, utilising their high power supercharged engines, eye-catching leather clad bodies and minimal luxuries.

Crafted with an uncompromising attention to detail and authenticity, this outstanding Petersen 4.5 Litre Blower was completed by English marque specialist Bob Petersen Engineering. Based upon an original 1936 Bentley chassis, the frame has been strengthened and stiffened by Petersen, strictly adhering to original Bentley specifications. In addition to using a period chassis, Petersen Engineering adopt a fully rebuilt 4.5 Litre Bentley R-Type, 6 Cylinder engine fitted with a Petersen Supercharger and heavy duty clutch.

Presented in Dark British Racing Green this blower adopts a full racing bonnet and wings, the body also benefits from a folding windscreen with secondary aero screens, Union Flags to each side, and racing laced bucket seats with Connolly leather and Wilton Carpets.

Today the car has covered just 1,200 Miles since its re-commission, and as a result presents in as new condition, paralleled to the day it left the Bentley production line. This breathtaking Blower is ready to be enjoyed by its new owner immediately. With a near two year waiting list for the famous Petersen built cars, this complete and immediately available Petersen Blower represents an excellent proposition. Viewings are available at our showrooms, based just outside London
