Originally, the founder of the brand - Walter Owen Bentley and his brother developed a 3-liter engine, and the company introduced its first car in 1921. In 1924 the Bentley team wins Le Mans. At the same time, the brand starts producing more powerful engines and consolidates its leading positions in racing competitions.

During this period, the automaker produces its most prominent models, such as Bentley 41⁄2 Litre and Bentley Speed Six. In 1931 Rolls-Royce took over and formed a subsidiary. However, during the 70's, due to a series of crises, the demand for expensive cars decreased dramatically.

The Rolls-Royce suffered heavy losses in the development of the RB211 aircraft engine, so it was decided to divide Rolls-Royce Motors Limited into a separate business automotive business and sell it to Vickers in 1970.

The first car of the new generation was the Bentley Mulsanne. In 1998, Bentley Motors was acquired by German Volkswagen Group. Back then Bentley produced its first all-new car under the new ownership and received a name - the Continental GT.
