    Description:

    Only 50 examples of the 4 liter were produced, of which there are still about 10 exist.

    This 4-liter Bentley with the registration plate GO 8477 assigned in 1931 has a very special history: As the first production vehicle it was delivered to no less than Captain Woolf Barnato. Barnato was director at Bentley and had funded the company significantly since the mid-1920s. The South African diamond millionaire not only had immeasurable means, but was also a driving force of the legendary Bentley Boys. As their most prominent representative he achieved several Le Mans wins for Bentley.

    The GO 8477 comes with extremely extensive materials and is probably one of the best-documented cars, which is often mentioned in the literature. The owner’s history is fully known. The car also impresses with its outstanding originality – after 74 years, the leather interior is still the first!

    After a careful restoration by the Bentley specialists McKenzie-Guppy, the car won the first prizes for the best limousine and the most original Bentley at the BDC Concours in Blenheim. Other awards were achieved in Pebble Beach, Villa d’Este, Monte Carlo Rally and Concours in Schwetzingen.

    This is a unique opportunity to purchase one of the last W.O. Bentley from a very prominent first owner, in a wonderfully authentic condition and with an incredible documentation!
