In 1930, the legendary ‘Bentley Boy’ Woolf Barnato was living a life of luxury and was a three-time Le Mans winner (consecutive). If there was anyone in the world of motorsport that was living on top of the world, it was Barnato. To prove just how fast he was in his Bentley Speed Six, he made a bet that he could beat the Le Train Bleu from Cannes to London. With minutes to spare, Barnato managed to beat the train in the race and the story of the Blue Train Race has gone down in history. To celebrate the 90th anniversary of this race, Bentley and their partner Graf von Faber-Castell have announced the new Bentley Limited Edition Barnato pen series. Each of these pens is finished in the dark racing green that’s commonly associated with Barnato. The pens also have Barnato’s handwritten signature on the cap and the barrels are hand-guilloched in a diamond pattern. There are three different versions in the series: fountain, rollerball and ballpoint. The collection is limited to just 1,930 pieces to honor the year of the race.
