Bentley is already well underway with its programme to build and sell 12 toolroom copies of its famed 4.5-litre Team Car Blower. Indeed the difficult bit – finding a dozen homes for each £1.5 million car – is already done. All it needs to do is now is make them. And to that end it already has the engine of what it calls Car Zero – the prototype it will be keeping for itself – on one of the old test beds originally built during World War Two for running in 27.0-litre V12 Merlin aero engines.
