Petersen 'Blue Train' Special


A faithful reproduction of the Gurney-Nutting coupe formerly known as the 'Blue Train' Car, fitted with beige Connolly leather, Wilton carpet and bur elm.


This car has been used by Bentley Motors Europe in 2004, displayed alongside theit new Bentley Continental GT at numerous shows across Europe.


The car also won the prestigious Peoples Choice award at the European Concours d'Elegance show Schwetzingen in Germany, possibly the biggest Concours event in the world other than Pebble Beach, California.

With its flamboyant bodywork and many unique features fitted both internally and externally this 6.5 litre Supercharged Bentley Special is a 'one off' and very unique.


Finished in a Dark Blue with two tones of grey Connolly leather, dark blue Wilton carpet interior with mother of pearl and silver inlayed walnut trim, a very exquisite car.


We have built five of these stunning cars based on the famous Barnato car which reputedly raced the ‘Blue Train’ across France. All five were built with very individual styling to the interior, with one a supercharged version to add even more ‘spice’ to the mix.


COVID-19: Notice to all of our customers booked in for our Goodwood track day in June. As government restrictions due to COVID-19 prevents foreign travel we have postponed our track day at Goodwood until 2022. All those who booked and paid for track and hotel for this year will carry their booking forward to 2022, please do contact us with any queries regarding this. Sorry for any inconvenience caused but we would love our international customers to be able to join us all once restrictions have been lifted. 


Featured are all examples of our work. All our cars are built to order for our customers to their own specifications and ideas.
