A real Classic Car - a beauty we call Bess the Bentley. Ted believes this was a really nice driving experience. This is a 1963 registered vehicle fitted with a 4566cc petrol engine. 

This car was built by Rolls Royce apprentices and designed by the late Amhurst Villiers who engaged Ted Allen as his expert in a subsequent court case which was reported on the front page of The Times newspaper.Mr Viller's called it his Deauville design. It was to commemorate his association with Rolls Royce and Bentley.

Mr Villiers designed the super charger on the old Bentley Blowers.


This shows the plumbing ready for the turbos on this Sceptre engine. Regrettably the  

project was not completed.   The road going engine equates to the Spitfire – Rolls Royce Merlin engine.
