Penelope Pitlane Bentley Birkin 4.5 Litre. The story of Birkin adding a Amhurst Villiers supercharger to the 4.5 litre Bentley is a story in itself. The Birkin Bentley subject of this model was made for the 1929 season. It had a slim body with an offset single seat and a large streamlined radiator cowling. Due to the high speed nature of Brooklands Birkin decided to remove the front brakes this should be born in mind when completing your model. It must have been a magnificent sight hurtling round the banking at Brooklands. This car captured the outright lap record at the 1930 Easter meeting when it lapped at 135.33 mph. The car used a gallon of fuel every 59 seconds and it developed 240 bhp. Birkin's record was broken by Kaye Don in a Sunbeam taking the record to 137 mph. The following year in 1932 at the Easter meeting Birkin again broke the lap record with a speed of 137.96 mph this record stood for 2 years only to be broken by the 24 litre Napier Railton of John Cobb.
The Bentley Birkin 4.5 Litre is available as a body only kit or a complete kit.
