Steve Sutcliffe Drives the Bentley Speed 8

Autocar Bentley Speed 8While Bentley push on with their new GT3 program, and international travellers calm down after a weekend at Le Mans, Steve Sutcliffe of Autocar fame put the Speed 8 Bentley through its paces at Anglesey.

The Speed 8 won Le Mans in 2003 after a strong battle with the now dominant Audi, with the number two car bringing in second place for Bentley.

Under the carbon fibre bodywork lies a 4.0 litre V8, twin-turbo with 600 bhp and a top speed of more than 200 mph.

It’s not very often anyone drives the Speed 8, let alone a journalist. Better still, this is the actual car that one the race. No pressure Steve.
