A wealth of detail information covering 80 years of Bentley is to be found in 622-pages book. That had not been compiled with a focus only on what usually is described by the term “Specials”, i.e. cars that over the years had been subject to re-design and modifications; sometimes built up from bits and and pieces. To be found are a lot of Bentley motor cars that sported extraordinary layout or details from the very day they were delivered originally and have survived in that form. To mention there are in excess of 1,000 photos, a chronology of Bentley model production and 80 pages of indices, 1,200 cars recorded by separate (cross check) chassis & registration numbers gives a glimpse on only a few highlights of the wide ranging contents of Volume II “Bentley Specials & Special Bentleys”.
