This replica, made by Bob Petersen Engineering based on a Rolls-Royce 20/25 chassis with Bentley Mk IV engine and transmission and equipped with a Petersen BM Mk1 supercharger, overdrive, hydraulic brakes, is of course not an Original. Yet there is a worldwide market for these types of tribute pieces. Firstly, they are 'just like the real thing' and secondly, owners of an original copy often find it a shame to use them to erase. Because nowadays that has its limitations. And not everyone has such a great mind as the British landowner who regularly went shopping with his Blower Bentley. He had lost control of the wheel several times on the bend in front of his estate and, after plowing through the bushes, had come to a stop against his garden wall.
He has moved the entrance to his park to the place where he always flew out of the bend. "Problem solved!"
Oh yeah; such a car as in the picture costs between the 200000-300000 euro if one is auctioned
