Bentley 3 Liter Supersports , 1925, #1046 and #1114
The Bentley "Supersports" were delivered from Spring 1925
to Spring 1927.The model was developed from the Bentley 3 Litre
"Speed" variant and
build on a 9’ weelbase chassis frame. Such short wheelbase lent itself
comfortably only to 2-seater coachwork. A special radiator with 'tapered'
sides was fitted "ex factory", this was no later modification. But only 5
cars were fitted such, the rest showed the familiar front.
during later years lists were compiled of the various versions of Bentley 3
Litre the original abbreviation "SS" as used e.g. on company drawings was no
longer found (not least because after World War II the abbreviation "SS"
inevitably was linked to the awful mNazi-organization); instead the cars from
that series were listed as "100". That designation had its origin in the
fact, that the manufacturer guaranteed these would be capable of 100mph
