MOVIE: Bentley Speed 8

Bentley Speed 8
2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed

Here's an impressive high-quality video of a Bentley Speed 8 doing some demonstration laps (and burn-outs!) at Goodwood Festival of Speed.  The Bentley in the movie is the car that won Le Mans 24 Hours in 2003.

LeMans Miniatures makes a fantastic Bentley Speed 8 slot car (132017/7 or /8) , I was lucky enough to see one on the track a few years back and its super impressive (although the metal aerials are very fragile).  Carrera also made the Bentley as a slot car, as you would expect not quite as nice as the LeMans Miniatures version but still impressive and cheaper.

I took the below photo of Bentley's Speed 8 in the Le Mans Museum in 2011, beautiful race car (smaller than you might think).
