Homage to a legend

Bentley Limited Edition Barnato

Fine writing instruments always have a story - and can tell inspiring stories themselves. The Bentley "Limited Edition Barnato" was inspired by a very special individual.

Woolf Barnato

In the 1920’s and 30s, Woolf Barnato, caused a sensation on the race tracks of Europe as one of the original "Bentley Boys". He was the Managing Director of Bentley Motors from 1926-1931 and 3 time Le Mans winner. One of his legendary stories told throughout the years is that of the "Blue Train Race", in which he made a bet that he could reach London from Cannes in his Bentley Speed Six before the legendary “Train Bleu” travelled from Cannes to Calais. Of course, he was successful in winning the bet and beat the train with time to spare.  
To celebrate the 90th anniversary of this race, Graf von Faber-Castell and Bentley have created a truly unique series of writing instruments. The metal barrel is lacquered in the characteristic Barnato dark green colour and guilloched in the signature diamond pattern created by Bentley. The chrome-plated front and end sections also gleam in dark green. The cap is adorned with the Bentley B, Bentley style knurling and Woolf Barnato’s original, handwritten signature as a reminder of the extraordinary spirit that lives on at Bentley today. 

The exclusive collection, which is limited to 1,930 pieces in honour of the year of the "Blue Train Race", includes fountain pens, rollerball pens and twist ballpoint pens. All writing instruments are delivered in an exclusive Graf von Faber-Castell for Bentley limited edition box.
