7 Famous Green Cars (2018)

6. Bentley Speed Six “Blue Train Special”


Even though this Bentley form the 1930s carries the name “Blue Train Special,” there is nothing blue about this car. The Bentley is finished in green, but we feel obligated to explain the term. The “Blue Train” goes back to 1930 when Woolf Barnato was the company’s chairman. He accepted the wager saying that he couldn’t drive from Cannes, France to London and get there before the Calais-Mediterranean Express reached the English Channel. He was driving the 1928 Speed Six and won the bet. As for the car – it is gorgeous!
