Bentley Special Justine “Peking to Paris”

About this car

After successfully launching our first 2 Bentley Specials – the Justine and the Speed 6 Blower – we are proud to announce our latest Bentley Special. The “Peking to Paris” edition of our Justine was built to drive long distance rallies on all kinds of terrain. This unique car is made to honor the true legends who raced at the Peking to Paris Rally over 100 years ago. With nothing but man and machine, these adventurers drove off into the most deserted areas of Asia and Europe. Many of our clients have this event on the top of their bucket list so we decided to restore & create the perfect car for this challenging rally. Read all about our latest creation or discover it in our showroom.

The Peking to Paris rally originally started as a race between the two cities in 1907. The idea for the competition came from an article in the French newspaper Le Matin. The ideology behind the race came from the saying: ‘as long as a man has a car, he can do anything and go anywhere’. The race started at the French embassy in Peking and was 15,000 KM in distance. Today, the Peking to Paris is still organised. This recreational rally is meant to create an amazing experience in a classic car while discovering a massive part of the world. We at Belrose Classics believe in this idea and have therefore created the perfect car for the experience.

The car

On the base of our beloved Bentley Justine we built the Peking to Paris Edition. This model is actually the rougher and better prepared version of the Justine. The Peking to Paris edition is equipped with 39 additional options that make the car perfect for thousands of miles through deserts and fields. With extra jerry cans and spare tyres, the car is ready for many miles on dirt roads and wilderness. The seats are adapted for maximum comfort on rallies with multiple driving days. The chassis and mechanics are protected with a strong shield to keep all rocks & sand outside while the interior is treated to withstand all possible conditions.

Other features are additional leather bags for extra carriage and a portable car jack and tool set. With the limited slip differential, this Bentley ploughs through the loosest sand and muddiest hills & descents.

The mechanics

The engine is a MKVI 4 1/2 L engine restored to the highest standards. To avoid a recurrent ignition problem in a classic car, we replaced the mechanical distributor with an electronic ignition. With the limited slip differential, this Bentley ploughs through the loosest sand and muddiest hills & descents.

This “vintage” & completely handmade and restored vehicle can be customized to your specifications and likings. Color, interior finishes, rally-adjustments,… You name it, we build it.
