[Lester] Lester's Bentley Blower

Recommended Posts

Being a proper British gentleman, Lester needs a proper British touring car for his globe-spanning adventure and what could be more properly British than a right-hand-drive, 1930 Bentley 4-1/2 Litre with the Amherst Villiers supercharger, a Bentley Blower? 

Lester has asked his good friend, the famous pilot and adventurer Jake Raines, to help turn Lester's Bentley Blower into a solid, competent, and reliable adventure car. Jake knows a thing or two about getting around in the wilderness and has fitted the Bentley Blower with strong steel wheels and aggressive tires, increased the ride-height for better ground-clearance on rough roads, added a spare wheel and tire above the capacious boot, and added a large jerry-can to carry additional petrol. 

Lester's Bentley Blower seats two comfortably and, on smooth roads, just like the Bentley Blower purchased in 1933 by James Bond, is "capable of touring at ninety with thirty miles an hour in reserve". Lester might not want to drive his Bentley Blower at ninety miles per hour on unimproved roads but his car's strong steel wheels, aggressive tires, and increased ride-height work in concert to ensure Lester can continue forward regardless of the terrain.

This is a quintessential Adventurers vehicle. The jerry-can is perfect. :thumbup:
