Blower Bentley of Tim Birkin Fetches $7M at Auction [Video]
Birkin’s 1929 4 1/2 Litre Betley managed to fetch a mind-blowing $7 million (EUR5.7 million at the current exchange rates) at an auction that was recently held by Bonhams at Goodwood, UK. This is even more impressive than the 137 mph (220 km/h) average speed record it managed to set on Brookland’s outer track.
The auction house has released a video that allows us to see how the sale went on from its perspective and we’re inviting you to enjoy this below. The story is told by James Knight, group director of the Bonhams motoring department.
