The current owner of John Steed's 4,5 Litre Bentley from 1929/UW 4887, Mr Lars Hedborg, added several new photos of the car.

The Bentley has now a new engine and also a new licence plate: CHH 196.



Well spotted, that is significant news. This car hadn't been heard of since The Avengers so it's great to know it is still around. Judging by the owner's name and the new registration number I'm concluding that the car is in Sweden.

The 6 1/2 litre "RX 6180" had itself previously been in Sweden undergoing a long restoration but returned to the UK and was put on the market last April. It has has now found a buyer and has just been taxed in the UK.

The 1927 3 litre "YT 3942", last known about in 1985, has now also just been taxed again for use on British roads which means it must be road legal.

So for the first time we know that all five* of Steed's Bentleys are still in existence: one in the USA, one in Sweden and three in the U.K.

*Ignoring the one used in the closing credits of series 4 which is not any of the three used in that series but not enough is seen to be able to identify it.
