Bentley Project 116

Bentley and Mulliner Park Ward referred to this car as Project 116.

It is a light weight racing version of the Bentley Continental R.

The light weight diet saw it loose 200kg. That included half its vision. Mesh eye patches were added.

The car was commissioned by Carlo Talamo of Milan. The name plate reads 'Bespoke Sports Bentley Designed and Built to the Personal Specifications of Carlo Talamo.

There was also plenty of engine re-engineering to increase power.

More information can be sort here.
