Bentley Motors Limited is the maker of luxury cars and a big sports car based in Britain. Bentley Motors was founded in England on January 18, 1919 by Walter Owen Bentley, known as WO Bentley or just “W.O. (1888-1971)”
The company is located in Cricklewood, north London, and known for its four consecutive victories on automobile racing 24 hours Le Mans (24 heures du Mans) from 1927-1930. The Great Depression destroyed demand for expensive cars of this company, and sold to Rolls-Royce in 1931.
