Chassis: 004/5
Chassis 004/5 was the fifth and final Bentley Speed 8 built. It was constructed specifically for the 24 Hours of Le Mans race. The team had used an earlier chassis for the traditional pre-season test. In its single outing, chassis 004/5 proved immediately successful, winning the race in the hands of Kristensen, Capello and Smith. Since its victory several of the other chassis were repainted to resemble the winning car but to our knowledge the pictured example is the actual winner. It is seen here at several editions of the Goodwood Festival of Speed
