The Blower Bentley, a supercharged 4.5 litre, was instigated & produced by Sir Henry 'Tim' Birkin in his quest for more power and speed. The decision to supercharge the existing car was not, however, universally acclaimed. W. O. Bentley believed that an equal increase in performance was obtainable by increaisng engine capacity as with the Speed Six.
