Bentley has recreated the famous Blue Train Race in the desert across the Arabian Peninsula. Story goes that Captain Barnato made a bet that he could beat the Calais-Mediterranee Express from Cannes to Calais and he did it in a Bentley. That was in 1930.

It’s 2015, and Bentley does it again in this homage where Steven Kane goes up against the Saudi Arabia’s only desert train in their Continental GT V8 Convertible.
