Some of the parts are already starting to do, including the engine, turbo, chassis, housing made of ash, fuel tank, mirror, Nickel plated radiator, leaf spring suspension and levers.

The Bentley in the near future will begin assembling the prototype of a series of Blower – “Car Zero”. On the agenda – bench tests of the engine. It is worth noting that all 12 copies have been sold, as “Car Zero” will be unveiled this fall.
