The first BENTLEY competed in the first 24 Heures du Mans in 1923. It was a 3-litre and it finished fifth, piloted by J.F. DUFF and F.C. CLEMENT. The years 1927 to 1930 were to see the supremacy of the BENTLEY at 24 Heures du Mans, with 3, 4.5 and 6.5 Litre cars, all of them without compressors. The HELLER model proposed is a 4.5 Litres car with a compressor, the one which the pilot Sir Henry BIRKIN had built against the advice of W.O. BENTLEY for the 24 Heures du Mans in 1930. Two models of this legendary car are still in existence at present, one of them in England and the other in the United States.
