Bentley

Automobile company Bentley Motors was founded in 1919 by Walter Bentley, konstruirovavshim engines during the First World war. Already in 1924, Bentley has developed a car that wins the 24 hours of Le Mans. It is interesting, that the success was repeated more than once. The first Bentley was equipped with a 3-liter engine, however, due to the increase of the requirements of potential buyers for capacity, was also designed a model with a 4.5-liter engine, which received the name of the Blower Bentley.





Already in 1929, was developed by a light version of the Blower Bentley specially for participation in the race.

All were produced 165 copies, including a prototype of the vehicle. In 1980, Bentley became unprofitable enterprise for Rolls-Royce, therefore, the further fate of the company was held under the auspices of the Vickers.
