‘The Blue Train’ Speed Six Bentley arriving at Retromobile

The famous Speed Six Bentley known as the Blue Train will make a stop in Paris this week for the Retromobile Exhibition. The 6.5-liter 1930 Bentley will celebrate the start of its 85th anniversary at the annual show.

The story of the Blue Train starts with Captain Woolf Barnato, Bentley chairman and three-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner. He bet a friend that not only could he beat the train from Cannes, France to Calais, but that he could be at his club in London before the train finished its journey.
