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.

The first post-war Mark VI produced since 1946.





Attention is also Bentley Continental, manufactured in 1952-1955 years solely for the internal market. Almost all Bentley Continental were pravorulnymi and in the type of body fastback. 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. There were revived "luxury" traditions of the company, the first bright representative of which was continental GT, 1980.
