This car was NOT mine. It belonged to a well-heeled friend.

There's a lengthy description of the Speed 6 here -

I think that the most extraordinary thing about the engine is this -


p { margin-bottom: 0.25cm; line-height: 120%; } “Bentley’s new engine was a sophisticated unit with an overhead camshaft and four valves per cylinder. The cylinder head and engine block were cast as one piece in iron so there was no head gasket to fail.”


Just imagine the work involved in, say, grinding in the exhaust valves.
