History of the Bentley 3 Litre

The Bentley 3 Litre was the company's first car, and it was available to coachbuilders from 1921 through 1929. The Bentley was substantially larger than the 1368 cc Bugattis that dominated racing at the time, with twice the engine capacity and strength compensating for the additional weight. The automobile weighed 1800 kilogrammes and won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1924 with drivers John Duff and Frank Clement, and again in 1927 with drivers S. C. H. "Sammy" Davis and Dudley Benjafield.

Ettore Bugatti termed it "the fastest lorry in the world" due to its great weight, dimensions, and speed, which was considered praise. The Blue Label and Red Label Speed variants were all covered by a 5-year guarantee, however the very valuable and uncommon Green Label vehicles, capable of 100mph, only had a 12-month warranty, showing the enormous degree of tuning.
