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. Another high-speed car Bentley with a 6-liter engine appeared in 1928, who became famous due to the novels of James bond. It is characteristic that in 1930 Bentley were on the brink of bankruptcy, but the success of the machine with 8-litre engine gave the opportunity to sell the company not someone else, a manufacturer of luxury cars Rolls-Royce. In this case, wolf Barnato, by the time owned the controlling package of shares, the money has purchased shares rolls-Royce, which gave him the opportunity in 1934 again lead the newly formed branch of Bentley Motors.





From now on production transferred to Derby, the beginning of manufacture of sports analogues Rolls-Royce, the first of which was the new Bentley on the 3.5-liter 1933. Unfortunately, the permanent clients of Bentley he is a little disappointed, but the "newcomers" was perceived in the ur. In the period of the Second World Bentley did not sell full of cars, but produced chassis rolling and dashboards, komplektovavshiesya bodies of other companies. 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.




Since 1998 and to this day cars of this brand produces Volkswagen Group.
