This is one of the six 4.5 liter W.O. Bentley RC Series cars built by Knobby Clarke, the former manager of Bentley. These cars were built in 1936 after the Rolls-Royce - Bentley merger. Knobby Clarke personally assembled the six cars.

The RC Series had the ultimate specs of the 4 1/2 liter models, as learned during their production period of 1925 - 1931. The RC cars have heavier non-twisting frames, 6.5 liter differentials, high ratio steering boxes, wrap-around (double-shoe) brakes, finned drums, and flame arresting carburetors.

The Bentley Drivers Club recognizes these cars as authentic Vintage Bentleys since all the parts were designed and manufactured before 1930. This carīs registration number in the Bentley Register is EMF 115 and is owned by Andy and Cherie S. of Illinois.

There are only 4 of these cars in existence.

Manufacturer: Bentley Motor Cars Ltd., London, Crewe, England
Coachwork: Vanden Plas
