This is the third and largest of the three Le Mans Bentleys produced by Models of Yesteryear being in 1:40 scale, the other two smaller cars are under the Y-5 model number sequence.

Matchbox released a small range of classic racing cars in 1985/6, a 1930 Bentley, a Maserati 250, a 1935 ERA a 1932 Type 52 Bugatti and a Ferrari 246 Dino. The cars were released to support a plan that Models of Yesteryear would sponsor classic car racing, an idea which was not carried through due to cost. This car was released by Matchbox in 1985 being produced initially in the UK in green. Production switched to Macau in 1988 and the following year the colour changed to dark blue. In 1990 production moved to China and the final colour change was in 1991 when the car was recoloured in maroon.
