A classic $38k Bentley fit for the Navy

Earlier this week, we covered the results of a sale which included "the best-looking Ferrari of its generation" and the "ultimate Porsche 911," held in Derbyshire, UK.

The 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Lightweight (M471 Sport) was the undisputed winner between the former racetrack rivals, speeding to a final price of £220,000.

The 1971 Ferrari Dino 246GT, meanwhile, rolled to £66,000.

The 1938 Derby Bentley 4.25-litre Sports Saloon, sold for £37,950  

But this pair of rival classic automobiles weren't the only head-turners at H&H's auction.

Also for sale was a car often regarded as undervalued among collectors: an original 1938 Derby Bentley 4.25-litre Sports Saloon.

The historic auto - chassis number 'B133LE' - spent much of World War Two aboard a destroyer, courtesy of its owner who happened to be a Captain in the Royal Navy.

This majestic motor with a remarkable provenance cruised to £37,950 at H&H, way above its original estimate.
