Old Mother Gun
 
The very first 4.5 litre Bentley (chassis ST3001) originally registered to Capt. Woolfe Barnato (reg. no. YH3196) in 1927 and entered for that year’s Le Mans as a works car, unfortunately forced to retire following the famous White House corner crash. It would return in 1928, by this time nick-named ‘Old Mother Gun’ to win the race driven by Barnato & Rubin. It then came 2nd in 1929 driven by Clement & Chassagne. The car was re-constructed based on its original chassis and some other original components to precisely replicate its form as entered for its first (1927) Le Mans 24 hr race.
