While we have a lot of experience in high end and high value vehicles, this one certainly caught our eye as something pretty special.
We paired up with the highly experienced team at Autofreight UK in order to prepare, secure and ship this vehicle half-way around the world, all the way to Ireland.
Such a long journey requires a certain level of expertise so the lucky new owner entrusted Willship / Autofreight to handle the logistics of sending their car to its new home.
The car in question was a very rare and beautiful 1930 Bentley Speed 6.
This is not only is it a rare car now, but it was even a rare car when it was first made. In fact, only 182 were ever built making this car a real piece of history from the moment it was produced.
At almost 90 years old, don’t let its age make you think it can’t compete though. It has a huge 6.5-liter engine that can produce 180hp. It’s no wonder that it recently sold for well over half a million dollars.
The Bentley Speed 6 itself is as legendary as it is powerful. Its features were extremely advanced for the time it was produced and included aluminium pistons, a twin-spark ignition, a high-performance cam, and a square-section intake manifold.
