Lot 318 - 2003 Bentley Speed 8 GRP Replica
|Result||Sold - £126,480|
This stunning, full-size, non-working model of the Bentley Speed 8 number 7 car – the 2003 Le Mans winner – has no mechanicals and appears to be very well detailed with full livery. It is thought this example travelled extensively as a display car. Looking at the detail it is easy to understand the appeal of such a unique piece. This GRP replica was built in August 2002 and unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in September 2002 as the first reveal of the 2003 race car shape. It was then subsequently used by the company as an official exhibit both home and abroad. It must be stated though there is no chassis number on the car. Offered for sale without reserve, interested parties are advised to inspect this model personally.
