    Bentley Embiricos (Embericos = the car´s first owner), styled by the frenchman Paulin.
    When 11 years old, this Bentley finished sixth at the 1949 Le Mans 24 hours race. A very cool car.

    Here it is. Some small things are off (look at the roofline), because the original is from a book. Should still be useful though.
    I have all the seperate parts of the drawing, in case somebody needs them.

    Regards

    Solid resin Embiricos Bentley

    This is a photograph of my solid resin model of this wonderful streamlined car. I made it using only photographs to work from. Further details can be seen on my website t h e e s s e n c e o f t h e c a r

    Bentley Embiricos

    The designer, Georges Paulin, has many claims to automotive fame. He designed the first retractable steel hard top for Peugeot and following from the Embiricos car, he designed a new Corniche model for Bentley in 1939. The only body was destroyed in Dieppe during an air raid and Paulin himself was executed by the Nazis for being a collaborator with the British. He was the Rolls Royce agent in Paris and a resistance hero. I also make a model of the Corniche in my Essence Of The Car range - see t h e e s s e n c e o f t h e c a r
