THE FASTEST SPORTS CAR
Discussions in MOTOR SPORT regarding the fastest sports-car seem to have centred round Mr. Lycett’s 8-litre Bentley; the general opinion of the ex-Birkin blower 4-i, owned by the RobertsonRoger brothers appears to be based on MOTOR SPORT’S best, which revealed a maximum of 104 m.p.h., this speed also being reached on third gear. However, an article by L. G. McKenzie, ” Tuning the Bentley,” published in a previous issue of MOTOR SPORT points out that this particular car originally had a special cylinder block with bigger ports and valves, though this is now fitted ; it seems that to test the car fairly such a block should he fitted. If a test were carried out under such conditions, I think that a performance at least approaching that of Mr. Lycett’s 8-litre car might be expected. I am, Yours etc.,
