The Legend

 

On Thursday the 13th of March in 1930, at 6 p.m., Woolf Barnato, Chairman of Bentley Motors, and his secretary, Dale Bourne, left the Carlton Bar in Cannes, and got into Barnatos Speed Six Bentley to see if they could get to London before the famous Blue Train. Driving through the night, they reached Boulogne at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, catching the 11:35 boat to Folkestone. Arriving there just after 1 p.m., they reached the Royal Automobile Club in Pall Mall at 3:30, 15 minutes before the Blue Train pulled into Calais. Of the 786-mile drive, Barnato said later that Any woman could have done the same thing without discomfort, and indeed they probably could, in a Speed Six Bentley.

The 2019 Pebble Beach Concours will be celebrating the Bentley Centennial. Arnage Blue Train Editions rarely come to market, making this a fortuitous time to participate in this piece of Bentley history.

Blue Train History

- The Bentley Arnage T Blue Train is a special edition of the Bentley Arnage T from model year 2006. A limited number of 30 cars was planned and finally 36 copies were built. After the production of 30 LHD cars a further batch of 6 RHD cars were built. Most of the Blue Trains were sold in the USA.

- The Bentley Arnage T Blue Train pays a special tribute to the 'Blue Train' Bentley Speed Six. The one source says that the Blue Train Edition Arnage was built to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Victory at Le Mans by driver Woolf Barnato. The other source says that the Arnage Blue Train was made to commemorate the legendary trip from Cannes to London in which the Bentley Speed Six Saloon bested the time set by the renowned "Blue Train".

- At the launch of the Bentley Arnage T Blue Train the first model in the series joined the original 'Blue Train' Speed Six, now owned by Bentley enthusiasts Bruce and Jolene McCaw, along with other historically significant Bentley cars in a 75th Anniversary tour from Cannes to London, following Barnato's original route. Participants enjoyed a more leisurly approach to the journey than that taken by Woolf Barnato, with attractions such as wine-tasting, overnight stops and gastronomic meals at chateaux and route.
