Bentley 100 Year History Explained

“On 10th July 2019, Bentley will reach its Centenary, an achievement most definitely worth celebrating. From the very first prototype created in a London mews to the phenomenally powerful and exquisitely crafted cars driven across the world today, Bentley has transformed the face of motoring. Watch our film above to see this story brought to life.

W.O. Bentley founded Bentley Motors in order to “build a fast car, a good car, the best in its class”. That desire has remained at the heart of Bentley’s vision ever since.

From the original 3 Litre right through to the incredibly powerful and refined cars of the modern era, Bentley’s extraordinary cars have always been designed and built by exceptional people. Today, every car is made at the Bentley factory in Crewe, in the north-west of England, by a team of over 4,000 highly skilled men and women.

It’s not just the team at Crewe that makes Bentley so extraordinary. Bentley drivers have always helped take our cars to ever greater heights, beginning with the high-spirited Bentley Boys and Bentley Girls of the 1920s and continuing through to the visionary Bentley owners of today.”
