From its creation in 1919 to the present renaissance under VW ownership the story of Bentley is told, the story of one of Britain’s most distinguished marques. The company and the cars produced there changed over the years. The vintage racing Bentleys of the 20ies were another breed than “The Silent Sports Car” designed after the take-over by Rolls-Royce. The turbocharged Bentley saloon, coupés and convertibles were highlights of the post-war period. The lavishly illustrated book is the first to trace the tenuous link between Walter Owen Bentley, the company’s founder and its modern heritage. Every new model (including the new Bentley Continental GT) and every technical advance (including recent victory at Le Mans) is covered.
