Steve Sutcliffe: 217mph Bentley Speed 8 Le Mans winner driven


The stunning Bentley Speed 8 dominated the 24hrs of Le Mans in 2003, finishing in first and second place, seven laps ahead of its competitors. So, when Autocar was invited to drive it at the Anglesey circuit, Steve Sutcliffe was hardly going to say no.

With a turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 it has 615bhp, weighs just 900kg and is geared to hit 97mph in first gear. Even with used racing slicks and a polite warning from Bentley to be careful, it’s breathtakingly fast.

A phone call to his dad the following day soon put an end to that! His therapist suggested that to overcome the addiction a healthy dose of Ferrari Blogging and Spotting will help, and with that SupercarTribe.com was born!
