Bentley

The founder of the legendary aristocratic brand of cars, established in 1919, Walter Owen Bentley developed his first car with a 3-liter "four" in conjunction with F. Bardzhesom and H. Varley. In the autumn of that year, Walter Bentley showed his first child at the Motor Show in London, but the production was able to develop only after two years. By the way, from the very beginning Bentley set his sights on the production of prestigious cars.

British firm named Bentley produce luxury cars. It was established in 1919. Serial production of cars, mainly sports, began in 1921. They have had many victories in various races, including 24-hour races in Le Mans.

In 1931, the "Bentley" became the property of the "Rolls-Royce" company, and then their models lost its sporty appearance and became "twins" of the "Rolls-Royce" models. As the matter, the difference consisted in the logo, facing the radiator, assembly and finishing. In recent years, "Bentley" became one of the firms included in the union of VAG (Volkswagen Aktien-gesellschaft). The emblem of "Bentley", the plant, which did nothing for aviation, decorated with wings by some reason.

In 1999 Bentley sales remained at the same level (about a thousand cars). The program of this brand is somewhat broader than the Rolls-Royce. Bentley is considered to be the exclusive vehicle for the driver. Buyers offered as a sedan or coupe and cabriolet. In 2000 the family included 10 Bentley models with different bodies and the capacity of power units. Mulliner modifications have more powerful engine, "tuned" suspension, specific and, as I said, "perfect, emphasizing the individuality of the owner of" finish.
