1931→1933 Bentley 4 Litre

From June of 1931 to until June of 1933 W.O. Bentley produced his last model, the 4 Litre, before being absorbed into Rolls-Royce.

The chassis was similar to the impossibly large 8 Litre Benley but reduced in size and offered in two different lengths. Somewhat overbuilt, the car is criticized for being overweight with poor power-to-weight ratio compared to the 4½ Litre it replaced.
