Description

Bentley has always been one of the most evocative names among British cars, and the 3-litre, made from 1921 to 1929, was the archetypal British vintage sports car. Bentley's success at Le Mans established it as a world-beating sports car, and the record of four consecutive wins was unbroken until the 1950's. After the Rolls-Royce take-over quieter, more civilised Bentleys were made in the 1930's, though still with a good turn of speed. Although the first pressed-steel bodies appeared after the Second World War, some models, such as the beautiful R-type Continental, were still coachbuilt. After a decline in the 1970's when very few Rolls-Royce products wore Bentley radiators, a revival came in the 1980's with cars such as the Turbo R.show more
