This is the 1927 6.5 Litre Old Mother Gun Racing Chrome in 1:43 scale by CMF.

The 1927 6.5 Litre "Old Mother Gun" racing car, driven by Sir Henry "Tim" Birkin, is a legendary piece of automotive history. Birkin, a prominent British racing driver and one of the "Bentley Boys," was known for his fearless and aggressive driving style. The Old Mother Gun gained notoriety for its distinctive design and powerful 6.5-liter engine, pushing the limits of speed during the vintage racing era. What sets the 1927 race apart is the unique and challenging Brooklands Double Twelve, a 24-hour endurance race held at the Brooklands circuit in Surrey, England. This demanding race required not only speed but also durability, testing the mechanical prowess of both driver and machine. Birkin's skillful handling of the Old Mother Gun in the arduous race solidified its place in motorsport history, highlighting the car's endurance and contributing to Bentley's racing legacy.
