The Bentley Speed Six in which Frank Clement and Dick Watney finished second at Le Mans in 1930 has been sold at auction for close to £2.8 million. The Works No2 team car was sold to a private European buyer at the Christie’s auction during the Le Mans Classic weekend. The price represents a record for any car sold at auction in continental Europe and is understood to be a world record auction price for a Bentley.
