Description

This Fine Car Art is dedicated to the most successful racing Bentley ever built. Enjoy the Bentley Speed 6 Coupe by Gurney Nutting art print depicting the car, which inspired the modern day design of Bentley Continental GT. The gifted illustrator Artem Halko is sharing with us his own perspective to this iconic car, driven by Woolf Bernato – the ultimate Bentley Boy.

This Bentley Speed 6 Coupe art is showing what the Bentley Boys were made of

Between 1926 and 1930, Bentley produced 182 rolling chassis of their Speed Six model. It got bodies by different coachbuilders, some of them quite extraordinary and beautiful in the same time. What made them legendary is their racing success. From 24 Hours of Le Mans to the Blue Train Race, Bentley Speed Six were nothing less than outstanding.

This Bentley Speed Six Coupe art is displaying the car with its low roofline but what you cannot see in it is the wine cabinet at the rear where just a single side positioned seat was installed. When the Bentley Boys were racing, they had to do it in style. Just as the Blue Train race arise.
“Barnato was at a dinner party on board a yacht near Cannes in March 1930 when the subject of racing the famous Blue Train came up, as both Rover and Alvis had recently beaten the train from St Raphael to Calais. Barnato wasn’t impressed, calling the achievement ‘no great shakes’. He wagered £200 that at the wheel of his Speed Six he could beat the train to Calais with ease.”

None of Mr. Bernato companions took the bet so he did the run anyway, just to prove he can do it. And he did it. It was widely known that Bentley Super Six Coupe was the car used in the Blue Train race but recent researches showed that it was delivered just few days after this event. Well, even though it has one-off design like nothing else and it was powered by the same engine as the Le Mans winning Bentleys.

Last but not least – because of the Blue Train race, Bentley were banned by French authorities from Paris Motor Show participation due to road traffic violations. How sweet, isn’t it.

Make yours the beauty of this Speed Six Coupe art, skillfully created by Artem Halko and carefully issued by Simply Petrol.

We are two brothers, Igor and Artem Khalko from Belarus, with the same passion in cars and art. We were born in a small city named Mosty, close to the Polish border. We started to draw cars since we were kids, probably 5 years old. That was a time of the Soviet Union fall apart. When we saw some extraordinary cars on the road or in the magazines, it always was a special occasion for us. They were times when the most common car was Lada Niva. It was an outstanding moment to see extremely rare Porsche, BMW, or Mercedes-Benz models on the road.

We have our art skills from father, who was a very talented artist and he managed to match his own passion for cars with painting excellent pictures.
Sometimes we joint our artistic skills and perspective to create car art as a team.
