<p>Here is a speed six Le Mans.</p>
<p>An unique piece from Mr. Malabava who was a craftman.</p>
<p>Built about 15 years ago for Mr. Claude Sanchez who gave it to his son in law who sold it today for about 1.000 €.</p>
<p>Spoke wheels and tyres are from Alfa-Roméo P2 from CIJ.</p>
<p>Pictures very soon.</p>

Nice big model but the Supercharger installation at the front in between the dumb irons and just below the grille, makes this a 'Blower' Bentley rather than a Speed Six.

That's what the auctioneer wrote.

And perhaps what the collector who ordered the model believed.

Built from scratch, apart from the wheels, it looks good. But a 1000 euros is a bit steep....

I would agree with you Theo. Too steep for my wallet.
