08 Jul 1985, California, USA — The 1929 Bentley Speed Six Coupe “Blue Train Bentley” is the first car to actually race and beat a train over an extended distance, in this case from Cannes to Calais France. The engine powering this beast was a 450bhp version of Bentley’s gigantic 6.75-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine. With a 0-60mph acceleration of 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 168mph the Blue Train Bentley forever rewrote the record books. — Image by © Car Culture/Corbis
