Bentley MK VI

Walter Owen Bentley began designing the four-cylinder Bentley in 1919, and four years later it was in production.  Soon the brand Bentley became synonymous with high-quality sports cars — with a high price to match.  In its first ten years, Bentleys won the prestigious Le Mans 24-hour race.

Because Bentleys were produced in such small quantities, the Bentley brand collapsed twice before it was taken over by Rolls-Royce in 1931.  The new Bentley had little in common with its predecessor, but instead resembled the Rolls-Royce.

It wasn't until the early 80s that Rolls-Royce decided to make use of Bentley's history as a performance car.  The Mulsanne Turbo was introduced, followed by the Turbo R, the Continental R, and the Continental T.  Models introduced in the 1990s include Red Label, Continental, and Arnage.

Bentley was taken over by Volkswagen in 1998, and then bought by BMW just a couple of years later.  Today, Bentleys are still produced in small quantities and are considered top-of-the-line luxury and performance cars.
